Could acrylic be causing a client's peeling nails?

October 1, 1999

I have a client who I use acrylic products on, and it appears as though her nail layers or cuticles underneath are peeling, and her fingernails are very sore. Is this because of the acrylic? What would you recommend that I do to help this client?

I'm new to using gels but I'm having trouble getting the nails just right.

October 1, 1999

I have been doing gels for about three weeks and I’m ready to give up and go back to acrylics. Some of my clients’ nails are a mess after two weeks. I hate having to deal with the forms and it takes a lot longer because I have to put on so many layers, curing each one and then the underside. Any advice?

What's the best way to keep clients' nails in good condition?

October 1, 1999

I would like to know the best way to get client’s cuticles in good condition. I find that a lot of my clients do not pay enough attention to their cuticles once they leave the salon and as a result I have to remove a lot of hanging skin.
