The Art of Proper Removal: Why Correctly Removing Semi-Cured Gel Nails Matters by LA-BEK

In the world of nail care, the application of semi-cured gel nails has revolutionised the way we achieve salon-quality manicures at home.
We’re obsessed with them!!!

However, as essential as it is to apply these nails correctly, the importance of proper removal cannot be overstated. At LA-BEK, we prioritise not just the beauty of your nails but also their health and integrity. Let’s explore why correctly removing semi-cured gel nails matters and the steps to do it effectively.

Preserving Nail Health

One of the primary reasons for emphasising proper removal techniques is to safeguard the health of your natural nails. Incorrect removal methods, such as forcefully pulling the nails straight up, can cause significant damage. This can result in weakened, brittle nails, and even lead to painful nail bed injuries. By following the correct removal process, you can minimise the risk of such damage and maintain the health and strength of your nails.

Gentle and Effective Removal Process

To ensure the safe removal of semi-cured gel nails, it’s crucial to approach the process with care and patience. Begin by gently lifting the edge of the gel strip using a wooden stick stick provided with your LA-BEK order. Avoid using metal tools, as they can cause damage to the nail bed.

Next, select a gentle yet effective remover to dissolve the adhesive bond. Options such as nail polish remover, cuticle oil, or coconut oil work well for this purpose. Apply a small amount of the chosen remover under the lifted edge of the nail, allowing it to penetrate and soften the adhesive.

Using the wooden stick, gently work the remover under the nail strip, moving back and forth in a gentle, rocking motion. As you do so, continue to add more remover to ensure thorough saturation and dissolution of the adhesive. Take your time with this step, as rushing the process can increase the risk of nail damage.

Once the adhesive has been sufficiently dissolved, you can gently peel off the gel nail strip, starting from the lifted edge and moving towards the opposite end. If any residue remains on the nail, use the alcohol swab provided with your LA-BEK order to wipe it away, leaving your nails clean and residue-free.

Preventing Damage and Maintaining Nail Integrity

Proper removal of semi-cured gel nails not only protects the health of your natural nails but also helps maintain their integrity and appearance. By avoiding harsh removal techniques and following the correct process, you can minimise the risk of nail damage, such as peeling, splitting, or weakening. This, in turn, allows your nails to remain strong, healthy, and beautiful, ready for your next manicure adventure.

Additional Considerations:

It’s essential to note that if you notice any damage to your nails while wearing semi-cured gel nails, such as chips or peeling areas, it’s best to remove them promptly. Leaving damaged nails covered can allow dirt, moisture, and bacteria to accumulate underneath, potentially leading to further issues.

In conclusion, proper removal of semi-cured gel nails is not just a matter of convenience; it’s a crucial step in maintaining the health and integrity of your natural nails. At LA-BEK, we prioritise providing not only high-quality nail products but also comprehensive guidance on their safe and effective use. By following the correct removal process and taking care of your nails, you can enjoy beautiful, healthy nails that are ready for any occasion.
