Correct Removal

Maniko Gel Strips do not need to be dissolved, instead you dissolve the adhesive underneath the strips and slowly peel them off. Maniko nails can be removed much more gently than a gel manicure. However, there are a few things you should bear in mind to avoid damaging your natural nails. Find out here step-by-step how to remove the Gel Strips correctly.

No filing

No Acetone

Oil based remover

Gentle on the nails

What you'll need:

Remover Serum

Manicure Tool


Cotton Pads

Step 1

Carefully lift the strip on one side

Brush the Maniko Remover Serum over the edge of the strips. Now use your wooden stick or a manicure tool to carefully lift one side of the strip. Make sure you use a flat angle to avoid using too much leverage.

Step 2

Slowly peel off the strips

Soak the wooden stick in the remover serum. Now use the soaked stick to loosen the adhesive layer between the nail and the strips, working from one side to the other and not in the direction of growth. Soak the stick with Remover Serum again after each movement or use the brush to brush a drop of Remover Serum under the strip. Tip: Don't skimp on the Remover Serum and apply it generously.

Step 3

Remove adhesive residue

If you still have residue of the adhesive layer on the nail, you can soak a cotton pad with acetone-free nail polish remover and simply wipe the residue off the nail.

Nail care recipe

A milk bath for care

A warm milk bath is particularly suitable for care between applications. If you have naturally soft or brittle nails, the right care is essential. You will need:
- 200 ml milk (or oat milk)
- 1 pinch of salt
- 2 teaspoons of almond oil
- 1 teaspoon of honey
Heat the milk and dissolve all the ingredients in it. Soak your nails for 5-10 minutes. Done, your nails will thank you!
