    1. Gently pick away your edges with the thumb of your opposite hand, especially around your cuticles. Just loosen the edges, don't pick away too much.
    2. Heat wrap again using your mini-heater
    3. Dip an orange stick (I like the slanted end, but personal choice) in oil (I use olive, coconut would be excellent too)
    4. Work oil in under wrap with stick, and gently work it side to side from base to tip, adding more oil as necessary.
    5. Repeat until wrap is free.

    Easy!

    Or, use acetone in place of oil, but I like using oil because it's not a harsh chemical on my nail. And then I also rub the remaining oil into my cuticles and fingers for 5 or so minutes before washing it all off.

    I pick around the cuticle and then slide some dental floss under the lifted wrap and 'floss' the wrap off. I then wipe away any residue with coconut oil on a makeup remover pad.

    Edit: I don't actually know if this method of removal prevents damage to my nail lol

    I seem to get lifting the next day. Does anyone have this issue? I think it's because my nails are weak and very bendy so when I push down to seal I don't get a good seal.
    Sounds exactly like me.

    Am I the only one who simply peels them off with ease? I don't use anything, in fact after a couple of days I'm desperately trying to press them back on where they've lifted! Removal has been too easy and I haven't noticed any damage.

    It sounds like you don't get a good seal. Have you tried the stretch and pull method? Also, sometimes vinegar works better then alcohol on some people to remove the oils to avoid lifting.

    Yeah I do the stretch and pull to smooth out bubbles, along with the 123 method. I do use alcohol swabs beforehand, as well as cleaning any residue with acetone nail polish remover. Will try the vinegar next time, thanks 😃

    Omg...just realised the polish on my toes is looking yuck. So I'll need to decide on jams for my toes too! Argh!

    My nails feel so naked and vulnerable without jams. only another 20 or so hours until I get my jam on again! Still haven't decided what though...
