Use a gel polish remover
Removing gel polish from skin around nails can be a bit tricky, but with a little know-how it can be done easily.
The first step is to use a gel polish remover. Gel polish removers are available in many stores and are specifically designed for removing gel polish. They will work well to remove the polish from the nails and any skin around the nails.
To remove the gel polish, start by soaking your nails in the remover for a few minutes. Make sure to apply pressure to the nails while they are soaking in the remover to help remove the polish more quickly.

Properly dispose of acetone
There is no need to be overly concerned about the safety of acetone, as it is considered a low-toxicity chemical. However, it is always important to follow proper disposal procedures in case the acetone accidentally comes in contact with skin. Acetone can be neutralized with a strong acid, like vinegar, or a mild alkali, like baking soda. It is also important to avoid breathing the fumes from acetone, as they are highly toxic.
Avoid damaging your nails
If you want to remove a gel polish job that’s been done by a professional, you’ll want to avoid damaging your nails in the process.

This process can cause your nails to split, brittle and even lose their color.

You can also use a remover that is specifically designed to remove gel polish. Be sure to avoid using harsh chemicals, as this will only damage your nails further.
