A.

First I would check your nail prep. Make sure you are removing the dead tissue around the cuticle; this is the most common reason for lifting around there. Also, make sure you do not 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.
