How can I avoid acrylic lifting?


Some of my clients complain that their acrylic lifts too quickly from the top. How can I avoid this?


First I would check your nail prep. Make sure you’re removing the dead tissue around the cuticle; this is the most common reason for lifting around there. Also, make sure you don’t touch the acrylic to the skin. This prevents it from making a good seal and will result in lifting. Another problem could be your liquid to powder ratio. Make sure you aren’t working too wet or too dry. — Tina Sauber-Spencer is the owner of Bahama Mamas Tanning & Nail Spa in Horton, Mich.
