Q.

I have found that sunblock can aggravate lifting. Is there any scientific reason for this?

A.

Yes, certain types of sunscreen ingredients can be quickly absorbed into both enhancements and nail polish. If enough sunblock is absorbed, it will soften the product. Nail polish will dull, mar, and can even slide off the plate. Sunblock ingredient can also worsen existing enhancement lifting and increase breakage. For this reason, it is best to instruct clients to avoid getting sunblock on the product. — Doug Schoon
