How to remove the semi-permanent varnish?

By: Maryton

3 weeks after applying semi-permanent varnish, regrowth begins to appear, so it is time to remove the color gel and take care of your nails! So if you want to remove your semi-permanent varnish without going to the nail salon, without taking the risk of damaging your nails, the nail expert Maryton will give you some tips for successfully removing it to perfection!

Unlike a classic varnish, semi-permanent requires a slightly more technical application that you need to know well so as not to make a mistake. There is no point in rubbing your manicure for hours with nail polish remover or scraping off the polish, you will definitely risk damaging your nails by damaging the thin protective layer on the surface of your natural nail.


First of all, you must start by polishing the surface of the nail to remove the layer of top coat and the shiny surface of the varnish. Be careful, you must not polish too much, otherwise you will damage the natural plate of your nail. You can use a buffing block and make light circular movements until the shiny layer of varnish is removed.

Papillote method

First of all, place a cotton pad soaked in remover on each finger. Then, wrap your fingers one by one in aluminum foil, taking care that the aluminum is tight enough so that the cotton soaked in remover is in good contact with the nail. Leave on for 10 to 15 minutes and remove. Finish by gently scraping off the remains of the semi-permanent with a wooden stick.


For a perfect finish, it is essential to take care of your nails to keep them strong and healthy. This is why it is important to hydrate them regularly. You can use vegetable oils to nourish them, strengthen them sustainably and regain all their shine.

Hoping that this article has pleased you and will give you ideas! In addition, I recommend investing in some professional manicure kits to care for your nails.
