Today at STYLEanthropy, we’re talking all about the nails. This post is like a two-in-one because, ONE, I’m showing you how you can remove gel nail polish at home. And TWO, I’m showing how you can achieve a gel-like effect with the latest Sinful Colors #SinfulShine Kylie Jenner King Kylie Collection! Let’s start shall we?
How to Remove Gel Nail Polish at Home
Let’s begin with removing the gel nail polish. If you have ever tried getting a gel polish at the salon, then you know that in order to remove it, you’ll have to get it done by them too. Well, there’s also the option of scrubbing hard and stripping it off your nails. But that’s not the right. You can ruin your nails!
So others just wait it out and have them removed when it’s time for a fresh mani. But what if I don’t have the time (or budget) to go to the salon that often? Or what if I want to give my nails breathing time in between polishes? They need a detox too, you know. That’s why I thought I’d share with you this easy way on how to remove gel nail polish at home. And perhaps the only thing you need to buy is this gel polish remover or this. The rest, I’m pretty sure you have at home:
- Gel Nail Polish remover
- 10 squares of aluminum foil (around 4×4 inches each)
- Nail file or nail buffer
- Nail cuticle pusher or orange stick
- Coconut oil
How to Remove Gel Nail Polish
Now that you have all your tools ready, watch this video to find out how you can easily remove gel nail polish at home. It will only take about 15 to 20 minutes, rather than driving to the salon just to have it removed. Plus, most of that time is idle time anyway. Meaning you can watch your favorite Netflix show while you wait for the gel polish remover to work its magic. Watch this.
Wasn’t that easy? Like I said in the video, I love the look of gel polish. However, it can be drying. So that’s where coconut oil comes to the rescue. But to take multiple precautions, I don’t like to use gel polish consecutively. So, finding a polish that looks like gel is a must! Enter the latest collaboration from Sinful Colors and Kylie Jenner.
Sinful Colors #SinfulShine Kylie Jenner King Kylie Collection
Sinful Colors and Kylie Jenner teamed up for limited edition Kylie Jenner curated collars. These highly curated, trend collections will be on shelves for a limited time only, from March 1 to August 31, 2016. Individual collections will debut at select mass market retail partners like Target, Walmart, Walgreens, etc., starting with the King Kylie SinfulShine Collection you’re seeing here.
The King Kylie Collection features 20 luxurious shades of precious metals and crowned jewels, offset by decadent neutrals. There’s one top coat too. This collection features a 2-step manicure to achieve that high shine like a gel. It’s got Sinful Colors’ Gel Tech to keep that gloss shining.
Another thing to note is the name of the nail polishes! They all begin in “K”, after Kylie’s name of course. Some of the names of the nail polishes are Koko-Nuts, Kryptonite and Kreme de la Kreme. The one I’m wearing here is Knight Out. These polishes retail for $2.99 each. For more information on these nail polishes, full list of retailers, or to see all the colors, head over to www.sinfulcolors.com.
What do you think of the colors? I’m loving how easy they were to apply – no sticky texture. And I was surprised that they dried up pretty fast. In no time, maybe less than 5 minutes, I was already typing away and cleaning up – something I can’t do with other polishes. Overall, I’m pretty impressed and these shall be put to use pretty often!
