Q Is the gel safe for my nails?
A There is no need for harsh filing or buffing of the nail plate in order for the gel to adhere to it therefore there is no natural nail damage. However if you pick at the gel and pull it off then there is a chance you could damage the first few layers of your natural nail. Leaving it to a professional to remove, with the correct solution, is the healthiest option.
