Can you go to the store and get one of those white rectangular buffing things and very gently buff off whatever gel is left on your nails? Don't use a file - they are too rough. Then I would give them a rest for like a month so they can grow a little before you put the gel on again. The good thing is that you tried this so far in advance before the big day. Imagine if you had done this right before the wedding - you'd be in Jamaica having a nail breakdown!

Most of the gel is off. I painted the rest of my nails with a clear coat so they sorta match, it's barely noticable.

When I got back home I went to the nail place in my neighborhood and they were like oh yeah gel is not as natural and strong as fiberglass. So I have had my fiberglass/gel nails permanent french and i really like them. I will say that my place uses a drill and after reading these threads maybe i need to find a place that doesn't but i'll ask about that. It's really bizarre I have gotten tons of compliments on my nails- they look super super natural and I keeop them pretty short.
btw- what's the going rate? I paid $75 for the nails and then $25 for a fill and this is not a fancy salon at all. (prob why they use a drill/file combo)
