It's true, using cotton pads/balls soaked in acetone, placing them on the nails and then wrapping each fingertip with foil does work (for I tried it after reading the previous review instead of buying the wraps; I found the wraps to work better for my tastes). The wraps limit the exposure of my skin to the acetone and the wrap around design securely tightens to my fingers, unlike the foil.
This seems to keep my skin, particularly the tips of my fingers, from becoming so dried out from the acetone. I also experienced a quicker, cleaner and more complete removal of the shellac product from my fingernails requiring less cleaning from an orange stick and less exposure length to the acetone, for I found the foil didn't keep the ball in place on the nail bed as well as the forms, requiring me to reposition and frequently keeping them on a little longer to sufficiently soften the product for removal.
Bottom-line, in my opinion, the remover wraps are a specific tool designed to be used specifically on your nails and that limits exposure to the drying effects of the acetone and holds the acetone more securely to the product during the 10 minutes required to sit with the wraps on, as opposed to using the cotton ball/foil method. For me personally, it's worth it, so I'll use them over the cotton ball/foil method every time.
The Shellac Remover Wraps are the key to 10-minute, efficient removal. A simple way to remember the steps is with the acronym "S.I.T"':
'S' - Saturate the cotton pad with pure acetone
'I' - In place...place the cotton pad directly over the natural nail
'T' - Tighten for Ten...tighten the wrap snuggly around the finger and set a timer for 10 minutes.
After ten minutes, massage the wrap to break apart the Shellac pieces. Firmly pull the Shellac Wrap straight off the finger to remove. Most of the pieces will remain in the wrap. Flake remaining pieces away with an orangewood stick. Clean the nail with pure acetone and then you're ready for a re-Shellac service!
* Soak Shellac nails in a bowl of acetone
* File off Shellac with a file or drill

I have compared both methods and found the wraps to be worth the price. The wraps take less prep time. You just apply the remover and wrap the finger, no more aluminum foil and cotton cutting.
A word to the wise, the longer your nails are, the harder the wraps are to apply. You will need to wrap the cotton part over the end of the nail as to ensure a proper seal. The tape should be over the cotton area as close to the end as possible. You ultimately want to make a cup at the end of your fingers. If you can see in the holes on the side of the nails your removal will take a lot longer.
And do not forget to buff all the shine off of you gelish top coat!

Waste of money. If you wait about two weeks, the shellac nail polish peels off on it's own.Published 6 months ago by just the facts
Tricky to get them on yourself but they do a great job and are less messy than cottonballs. I use to remove Shellac as directed.Published 6 months ago by BrooklynBeka
You really don't need these. Simply soak a cotton ball in acetone, put it on the nail, wrap in foil for 10 min. Same effect but a lot cheaper.Published 7 months ago by Kelli
