A client wearing acrylics wants to come in weekly. Should another coat of acrylic be added or is there another procedure to follow?

Answer

Some clients’ nails grow faster than others. If your client’s nails grow fast enough to justify a fill every week, then I would go ahead and fill them. But if not, she may just need a little buffing and filing to clean them up until her next fill. Just apply a fresh coat of polish and she will probably be happy. I would charge the same price as a manicure for this service. — Tina Sauber-Spencer is owner of Bahama Mamas Tanning & Nail Spa in Horton, Mich.

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?
