Due to the closure of nonessential businesses, which includes nail salons, many of us are resorting to unconventional methods for removing gel manicures, including Alicia Keys.

On Tuesday, the singer enlisted her husband Swizz Beatz to help remove her gel nail polish, and the video of the heartwarming moment posted to Instagram is a must-see.

In the clip, Alicia is seen coaching the record producer through the laborious process of filling the nail polish off, when he suggested a faster method.

“You could use an X-Acto Knife,” suggested Beatz to which Alicia replied, “No. I don’t think that’s a good idea.”
