I wanted to give myself a new gel polish manicure today, and I opened up my gel polish kit, and oops.... out of those lint-free wipes that are used with the gel cleanser (which is isopropyl alcohol). So, I looked around, and I found a 80 count package of "baby wipes", that I got at the local dollar store.

Step 1: Gather the Supplies

Few supplies needed: wipes, scissors, blow dryer, gel manicure kit.

Step 2: Dry, Cut and Bag

After removing 2 wipes, I dried them with a blow dryer.

I folded each one into thirds, and cut them along the fold lines.

I folded those sections into thirds again, and cut them again.

So, I have a total of 18 squares.... ready to be used!

Here they are, in a mini zip-top bag. They are safe for more gel manicures.

Step 3: Apply Gel Polish Manicure

Apply gel polish manicure per your kit's directions, and enjoy!
