Before removal

Good Things Take Time

Never simply pull the strips off the nail. Take your time when removing the Maniko Nails. Proceed slowly and patiently and read the removal tips carefully. This will prevent damage to your natural nail.

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.

Apply Remover Serum

Lift strips

Step 2:

Slowly peel off the strips

Now soak the wooden stick in the remover serum. Now use the soaked stick to loosen the glue layer between the nail and the strips, working from one side to the other and not in the direction of growth. Re-soak the stick with Remover Serum after each movement or use the brush to apply 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 glue left on the nail, you can soak a cotton pad with acetone-free nail polish remover and simply wipe the remains off the nail.

Maniko UV Gel Strips sind HEMA-free

Removing your Maniko Nails is very easy and gentle: use the Magic Remover Pen, or apply the Remover Serum to the cuticle. Soak the tip of the wooden stick with Remover Serum and now carefully lift the strips from one side (left or right). Now use the soaked stick to further loosen the adhesive layer between the nail and the strip by working from the left or right. Avoid working in the direction of nail growth, soak the stick with Remover Serum again after each movement or brush a drop of Remover Serum under the strip.

If you have soft and fragile nails, care is the be-all and end-all. Use a base coat or nail hardener before applying your Maniko Nails. You can also treat your nails with a little nail oil in between, just make sure that you thoroughly degrease them again with our prep pad before the manicure.

If you already have a UV lamp for conventional UV polish, you can also use it for Maniko Nails, but as these lamps are usually quite bulky for studio use, we recommend our lightweight Maniko UV lamp in a compact travel format.

No, Maniko Nails are much gentler than a gel manicure in a nail salon. This is due to the gentle removal without milling, filing or acetone, the only important thing is that you take enough time for the removal and follow the instructions. If your nails are already damaged, you should take good care of them between applications and moisturise them.

No, because Maniko Nails only require a very low level of radiation to cure. 6W Maniko UV lamps are significantly weaker than a conventional UV lamp in the studio or natural UV light in the sun. In fact, you get more UV radiation in one minute in the sun than in one minute under the Maniko UV lamp. This is why you should not do your manicure with Maniko Nails outdoors, as the natural UV light can harden the Maniko Nails in a matter of seconds. Of course, UV light can have a negative effect on the health of the skin. So if you are already sensitive to the sun or are unsure, you can of course apply sun protection to your fingers.
