By peeling off a gel manicure, you are not only removing the gel, but also the top layers of these delicate cells. This can result in white patches and textural irregularities throughout the nails. Repeated picking of gel polish can cause your nails to thin over time, making them more brittle and susceptible to breaking. Improper removal can cause cracks or scrapes on your nails. If your nails are weakened and thin, you may have to wait for a new, healthy and strong nail to grow in before you get another manicure. And that could take months. even regular polish might not work after peeling. Peeling could cause dry and flaky nails, which will show through regular polish, so be prepared to rock natural and ragged nails for a while. You can easily avoid this by not peeling them off yourself. Just get it removed properly! Please!!
