Anyone out there who loves a good gel mani will know what a pain the long-lasting polish is to remove.
Lifting those layers of stubborn LED-cured gel polish often takes a whole lot of soaking and scraping - all of which can weaken and damage your nails and nail beds.
Well, good news mani-lovers, because a revolutionary nail polish remover is clocking up rave reviews, and reportedly works its magic on sturdy gel nails in minutes.
The product in question is SegMiniSmart's Magic Nail Polish Remover, which can be purchased on Amazon for a bargainous £11.89.
Made with natural ingredients, the product is non-irritating and has a lighter smell than many of its competitors. No strong pong of alcohol here!
Simply brush the easy-to-use product over your nails and wait for 3 to 5 minutes. You should then see the nail polish start to naturally crack and peel up at the edges.
Once the surface is thoroughly cracked, it should be easy to gently wipe off the broken gel layer with a paper towel.
The magical soaking gel is billed as being effective on a variety of mani treatment types, from UV plastic nails to acrylic nails and traditional polish-and-go manis.
You should be left with a shiny, smooth nail surface, free from any pesky scraps of clinging polish.
Fast-working and simple, the magical gel remover aims to take the worry and time out of the removal process and eliminate the need for complex nail kits or pricey trips to professional nail salons.
Going by the reviews, the wonder-product delivers on those promises.
"Love this!" wrote one happy customer. "Finally a product I've found to take of my gel nails without having to soak them for ages! This is quick, easy and convenient to use.
A five-star reviewer agreed: "Within 30 seconds you can see [the product] starting to lift the gel polish. After waiting 5 minutes I used my metal polish scraper and it was like a hot knife through butter, even the base coat came off with no fuss unlike soaking your nails."
"Works a treat," wrote a third. "Let this soak in for a few minutes, the more the better, and then off comes the old polish with complete ease!
While another enthused: "This is amazing! I was very sceptical when I ordered it. Left it on for 5-6 min without any filing of the top coat. Purchased a cuticle remover with it and it scraped right off."
An affordable, at-home solution to nightmare gel removal? We're sold.
