Here’s how to remove gel nail polish at home :

First off all, soak cotton balls in acetone. Rub it  on your nails until your polish is completely soaked with acetone.

Cut aluminium foil in squares that are big enough to wrap around your each nail.

Place the acetone soaked cotton ball on your nail and wrap it in foil. Repeat this step on all your nails.

Wait for ten minutes, then remove foil and peel off your nails polish. You’ll find that the nail polish peels off easily due to soaking in acetone.
