Hi all. So I have just been dying my lovely grey roots and gotten black dye on my new nude gel polish. Any suggestions of anything I might have in the house to remove this please? Thanks so much

Possibly acetone free nail polish remover, but not 100% sure.
In theory it shouldn't harm the gel polish.

Acetone free might break it down a little bit but you might get away with it.

I’d ask the nail tech why it’s happened though, cured nail coatings shouldn’t take on dye.

This can happen, things like sun tan lotion can also change the colour of gel polish.

I've heard hairspray can help- gently rub with a cloth, also I've heard people use rubbing alcohol to get stains off, if you don't have any you can try neat vodka!

Hang on, did you wear gloves?.
