Is it okay to use cuticle oil during a nail enhancement? Will it cause lifting?

Answer

We use Dadi’Oil to pre-soften the cuticle prior to enhancements for easy removal of the cuticle. But we also know that any kind of oil or residue left on the natural nail can contribute to lifting. So it is very important to wash, dry, and cleanse the nail before applying product.

Once the enhancement has been properly applied and sealed, a cuticle oil is incredibly beneficial to the nail and surrounding skin. Dadi’Oil can be used on a daily basis to condition the eponychium. It absorbs quickly, penetrates deeply, and helps add flexibility to the nail.

How can I prevent lifting when my client's hands are constantly in water?

I have a client who is in the medical field so her hands are constantly in water. She has me keep the length of her acrylic nails short. No matter what I do, she always has at least one nail that comes off, and she always has lifting and gets water under the acrylic. I prep the nails correctly, I have a cuticle bit to clean the cuticle area, and I wipe the nail with alcohol, dehydrate the nail, and prime the nail. What should I do?
