Q.

Is it common to have to change products or procedures (including changing the ration of the products) depending on the weather? Is it possible for perspiration to make the product lift?

A.

Changes in temperature affect the way all enhancement products “cure” or “set.” On warmer days, enhancements will set faster than on colder days. If the temperature of the salon is too low, the product will not set properly. This may lead to service breakdown. The same can happen if the product sets too quickly. Temperature also affects the amount of powder your brush will pick up. Using the identical technique with warm monomer liquid will cause the brush to pick up more powder. The result is a drier-than-normal bead. Technicians should recalibrate their technique whenever the seasons change to ensure they aren’t using the product too wet or too dry.

If the nail plate is properly prepared and a high quality product is applied, no reasonable amount of perspiration will make the enhancement lift. -- Doug Schoon
