I use those blue shop paper towells that a lot of girls on here use. You just cut them up. They work well for me.

I like Hands-Down, but they are kind of pricy.

I use hands down nail wipes with the plastic back for everthing but gels. I can't remember the name of my lint free wipes, they are square and come in a paper wraping.

Bounty paper towels cut into squares work great (lint free) and very cost effective.

I use Hands Down, NSI nail wipes and when I feel motivated enough to sit and cut, I cut up my soft landings towels into wipe size (but that's only sometimesSmile cause time is hard to find in my busy life Smile

I use Hands Down as well, but I agree, they leave lint Sad I wasn't loving the OPI Expert Touch ones either, I might try the shop towels though - I could totally cut those with my scrapbooking punches! Great idea!!!

Nothing is lint free.
Me too, cut own, I use blue shop towels to blot acrylic brush, Kirkland hand towels for other wipes (less lint than most) and brawny cut in strips for toe separators for most clients.
I spend some time cutting every so often but I have exactly what I want.... and nice and cheap.

IBD wipes are lint free. They're just insanely spendy. I buy 1/2" thin foam sheets from JoAnn's in the upholstery department. It's the exact same stuff but much cheaper. I cut it into squares as I need them. 100% lint free! Smile

The IBD ones are white and I think a tiny bit less than 1/2" thick. The foam I get at JoAnn's is a light green and exactly the same material. Last time I bought some it was $9.99 a yard. The IBD wipes are 80 count for about $4 each. To make storage easier I cut the yard into several pieces and put them in a plastic storage box. Then I just cut as many as I'll need for a day or two. To compare costs, a yard, cut into 1"squares equals 162 boxes of IBD wipes! No contest!
Sorry I can't do a pic for you...no camera!

Yep, that's the stuff! I just buy a yard or so from JoAnn's when I'm in town. I'd bet that you can find it at any fabric/craft store.
Someone asked how it holds up to polish remover. It works great!

thank you so much!that's an excellent idea to use instead of all this wipes that are not lint free at the end! i wonder though how come only ibd has this kind of nail wipes since this is the best options in my opinion for nail technicians!i will have a look on my local shops about that because i live in greece and this site doesn't ship internationally and i don't know how to search it on ebay! all kind of foams end up as results and i got confused! i'm afraid at the end i'm going to order something for a bed and not for the use i want it!
