STYLFILE Gel Remover - The Story
As a result of the success of the STYLFILE product range and Tom’s involvement in the nail industry and understanding of nail care and nail applications, yet another beauty problem came to light.
With the ever-increasing popularity of instant drying, durable high gloss gel nail polish applications came the ever-growing problem of just how to easily remove the polish and avoid nail damage.
At worst people are picking off the polish causing damage to the nail bed. Typically salons and in turn individuals use pieces of tin foil to wrap around each finger to hold the acetone soaked cotton wool in place. And often the foils slip which mean the acetone isn’t successfully applied to the polish – and can even be damaging to skin.
Goodbye Foils – Hello Clips!
The STYLFILE Gel Polish Remover Kit brings you everything you need to safely remove gel nail polish at home.
The unique STYLFILE S-File is the same S-shape as other files in the hugely popular STYLFILE Nailcare Collection. It follows the nails’ natural shape, and has a unique buffing surface, making it easy to buff the surface of the gel polish away before soaking the nails, even when using your non-dominant hand.
Gone are the fiddly foil wraps. In their place the kit has an ingenious set of re-usable clips that are placed over cotton wool soaked in the gel polish remover solution to hold it firmly and comfortably on each nail, making sure the soak off is quick and effective.
Gel nail polish lasts weeks and looks amazing. It’s no wonder they are hugely popular. However people generally believe that gel nail polish damages the natural nail. According to Jenny Longworth, nail technician to the stars, the damage is often caused by incorrect removal of the polish.
This inspired Tom to find a way to safely, easily and effectively remove gel polish without causing damage. He met with experts at the University of Manchester and was able to use their ultra sonic device – one of the only machines in the world able to measure the thickness of nails at the nail bed and used it in consumer testing of his new kit.
These encouraging results showed Tom that participants’ nails seemed unaffected after using the removal kit.
None of the testers felt there was any damage to their nails and reported that it was easier to remove the gels, required less scraping and loved the fact they were able to do the removal themselves. Every tester said they would use the kit instead of their normal removal method and would have gel polish applied more often, now they could remove it easily themselves.
