Could Menstruation Be Causing My Client's Inability to Wear Enhancements?

Q.

I haven’t been able to find the right type of artificial nail application for a particular client. I first tried a solar acrylic product and for the first few days her nails were fine, but then the acrylic slowly fell off. I switched to another product and the same thing happened. After that, I tried a no-light gel system. Again, her nails were fine for the first few days, then they cracked and crumbled off. Next, I applied a nail wrap, and that fell off as well. Now I have ordered a get with light system and don’t know what I’ll do if this fails also. My client says she isn’t on any medication. Do you know what can cause this problem? What about putting a nail application on while she is on her menstrual cycle? Does that have any effect?

A.

Since all artificial nails, regardless of type, must use some form of acrylic material, it would appear that your client may be sensitive to that basic ingredient. If that is the case, you will probably not succeed in finding a variety of product that is well tolerated by your client. If your final attempt with the gel light system fails, it may be necessary for your client to abandon artificial nails at this time. I do not believe that the time of the menstrual cycle has any effect.
