Inhaling acetone can be pretty disgusting — plus it leaves your nails with an alcoholic scent. That’s why we’re obsessed with Ciaté’s line of chocolate-fragranced removers. Choose from the four "flavors:" dark chocolate, white chocolate, mint chocolate, and orange chocolate. After we tested the white chocolate, our digits were left with a clean, sweet aroma.

Going to the salon to have your gel manicure removed can be pricey and time-consuming (most spots charge at least $5 extra for the removal service!). We know our nail-art girls will be thrilled about these easy-to-use kits: Simply saturate a cotton ball with remover, apply it to the top of your nail, wrap foil around it, and let it sit for five to eight minutes. The gel polish should slide right off your nail with a swipe or two of the cotton ball.
