Steam Off Gel Removal System, $100
Sure, we love a practically bulletproof, chip-resistant manicure but having to endure the tedious and time-consuming gel-removal process is kind of a nightmare. Acetone baths are toxic and trekking down to the salon for a 20-minute foil wrap that doesn’t always work (which usually leads to scraping layers off you nail) seems counterproductive. Luckily, there’s an unexpected but totally brilliant solution for that–steam! Insert your fingers into the device and sit back as your nails are misted with a vitamin-infused acetone that makes stubborn gel lacquer melt away in 10 minutes or less.
