- Cotton pads cut into quarters
- Mitty Polish off Soakies. You can also use aluminium foil however Polish off Soakies are reusable and much better for the environment.
- Low grit nail file like Mitty 100/100 grit nail file or an electronic file (e-file or e-drill) like Mitty portable nail drill with a Smooth Top Barrel-Medium nail drill bit.
- Nail buffer
- Cuticle oil

How to remove nail extension?
To remove, there are a few steps to do so that you can easily remove them. File as much of the nail extension as you can using a low grit nail file like Mitty 100/100 grit nail file. This step can be much easier if an e-drill (e-file) like Mitty portable nail drill and using Smooth Top Barrel-Medium nail drill bit if you are trained on how to use an e-drill.
- Now we need to soak the nails with pure acetone. Cut a cotton pad into 4 peices. Now place acetone on the pad, slip the pad inside your Mitty Polish off Soakies and slide the Soakies onto your finger. If you don't have Mitty Polish off Soakies, you can use aluminium foil however aluminium foil is harder to use and it's not environmentally friendly.
- Wait 10-15 minutes and remove the Soakies. Use a cuticle pusher to remove softened gel. If all products are not removed, repeat step 1-3 until all gel products are removed.
- Once all gel products are removed, buff the surface of your nails and apply a good quality cuticle oil like Mitty 100% certified Australian organic Cuticle Juice.
