Master Nail Tech, Educator and veteran salon owner Angela Blaisdell can now add patent-pending inventor and manufacturer to her resume. Angela turned her more than 20 years of nail industry experience into a revolutionary UV/LED gel polish removal solution that nail techs and enthusiasts won’t be able to live without, proTIPCLIPS.

How We Began

Her motivation related directly to the gap she recognized in the mani/pedi process. While she enjoyed client’s satisfaction that came from UV/LED gel polishes, nail art and embellishments, when it came time to remove them the typical “tin foil around the finger” method was never good enough.
“I didn’t have the time to cut foils after appointments, I wanted those precious hours spent with my son and often deployed husband. Wraps were not cost effective and the trash you accumulate is saddening. The industry lacked a truly professional removal method,” explains Angela, “so I created one.”

proTIPCLIPS Development Process

The first prototype of the plastic clips was crafted in her own home. A company, Mani-Pedi Professional Solutions, was built around this concept and end manufacturing goal. Several painstaking years of engineering, patenting, testing and fitting, mixed equally with personal, blood, sweat, tears and exhaustion, paid-off when the product was prepared to launch at PREMIER Beauty Show, Orlando, 2014.

A smart, much-needed method for removal

Developed by a nail tech, for nail techs.
Don’t foil a finger again, proTIPLCIP it!

 

What makes proTIPCLIPS the best method to remove UV/LED gel polishes, nail art and other embellishments?

Both the mani and pedi kits are seriously well-thought and engineered to create the classiest experience possible for your client, and the most effective and efficient removal process for you. They clip comfortably on the fingers yet firmly enough to hold a pad with your preferred remover on the nail. No slipping, no failing off and no unnecessary trash. It’s not a secret the main method to hold a pad with remover has been tin foil, you don’t have to use that outdated, unprofessional process anymore.

Are proTIPCLIPS Acetone resistant?

ABSOLUTELY!! I worked hard with my engineers and plastics company to find a super resistance plastic that could withstand the daily use of acetone. I have tested my clips on my clients for over a year now and they still look brand new! Finally, something on the market that really is resistant and of high quality! You will be so surprised!

Are there separate kits for manicures versus pedicures?

Yes. The manicure clips are specially designed for fingertips. They have a comfort foam wedge inside them which is angled upwards and allows for full contact of the free edge to cotton material (once you soak with choice remover solution). The pedicure clips are designed with smaller sidewalls and no padding. This allows better comfort and easier fit in between the toes.

 What is included in a manicure kit? 

A salon-quality manicure kit includes ten resuseable, sanitizable finger nail clips and a sturdy storage box. The ten clips feature two specifically sized for the thumbs, the rest for the eight remaining digits. The clips in the manicure kit have a comfort foam wedge inside them which is angled upwards and allows for full contact of the free edge to cotton material (once you soak with choice remover solution). These are specifically designed for the fingers and are different clips than what you get in a pedicure kit.

What is included in a pedicure kit?

A salon-quality pedicure kit includes ten reuseable, sanitizable toe clips and a sturdy storage box. The ten clips feature two specifically sized for the big toes, the rest for the eight remaining digits. The clips in the pedicure kit feature smaller sidewalls and no padding on the inside, which is different than the manicure clips. This allows better comfort and easier fit in between the toes.

Can I sanitize my proTIPCLIPS?

Absolutely. The plastic resin we chose to manufacture the clips was specifically selected because it can endure sanitization chemicals. We prefer to use Barbicide Wipes, and cleanse off any dust or product that gets on the clips. proTIPCLIPS makes it possible to follow your state’s requirements on sanitization.

What types of nail embellishments do proTIPCLIPS remove?

proTIPCLIPS aid in the removal of any foils, stones, glitter polish and 3D artwork that is impressed into gel polishes.

What kind of remover can I use with my proTIPCLIPS?

You may use acetone or whichever other kind of remover that is recommended in the polish or embellishment system you started with. Don’t forget to pull out your remover saturated pad from the clips when you’re done!

Are there ways I can improve the removal process?

Creator of proTIPCLIPS and seasoned nail industry professional, Angela’s, personal tip and recommended suggestion is to place a warming pad under or over your client’s hands during removal. It not only adds a soothing touch and luxurious treat for your client, it may increase the effectiveness of your remover.
