Remove Hair Color Stains From Gel Nails

The removal of hair color stains from gel nails is a hot topic for beauty professionals who enjoy well-polished nails. Instead of suffering from “ombre” nails, try a few tips to remove hair color stains from gel nails in this week’s Q&A with Ask the Pro Stylist.

Whoop, whoop, it’s Hump Day, and time for another weekly Q&A with Ask the Pro Stylist. If your gel nails are constantly suffering from “work-related trauma” i.e., hair color stain removal; the following suggestions will help keep your salon service intact.

A future professional that enjoys an affinity for bi-weekly gel manicures recently asked me how to remove hair color stains from her gel nails. I cannot remember if the student used gloves to wash out the guest’s hair color. Either way, her manicure suffered from hair color stains.

I responded to her query sarcastically with, “You don’t,” because I am an eternal smart ass. Wearing gloves during the application and washing experience will deter this common color challenge. However, even with the best of precautions, on a busy day, hair color stains occur.

I have always enjoyed long nails throughout my beauty career. From the beginning I have used a nailbrush on my hands every time I shower. If that doesn’t work, try a mixture of baking soda and dish detergent, isopropyl alcohol on a cotton ball, petroleum jelly, or non-gel toothpaste.
