So I've finally bought a gel nail set. However it doesn't come with remover or cleanser. First question... May be stupid but do I need cleanser? Second question is can anybody recommend a remover preferably of ebay or amazon?

Do you mean a kit with a lamp? Remover is just an acetone based nail polish remover (superdrug do a stronger one for removing artificial nails) and the cleanser is alcohol. You will need that to remove the tacky layer at the end, and to cleanse before hand with lint free wipes. I have one from gellux which I bought on amazon.

Yeah the kit with lamp. Updating previous training never taught gel nails. Will have a look tommorrow superdrug and order the cleanser thank you!

Just buy rubbing alcohol off amazon, much cheaper than buying a bottle of cleanser and its the same thing. Bottles are huge too!
