Do your clients ask about polish being “three-free”?

There are a lot of heated opinions about the safety of nail polish. As nail techs, we care, of course, but is this a topic that’s foremost on the minds of clients? We asked readers: Do your clients ask about polish being “three-free”? Do they seem to care about the ingredients in their polish?

Why does the polish bubble on natural nails?

On some of my natural nail clients my polish tends to bubble. I clean the nail plate with acetone very well before I polish. Then I use base coat, two coats of polish, and top coat. I usually have them hold their fingers in front of a fan between coats, and I spray a rapid dryer on after I finish. Any ideas?

What are the dry white spots on my client’s toenails?

One of my clients has dry white spots on her big toenails. She went to the podiatrist and he said she was allergic to nail polish. I would put oil on and buff and the white spots would go away. I have seen this on almost every client at one time or another, especially in the winter. What do you think it is?

What is causing air bubbles in my polish application?

Every time one of my clients receives a manicure, tiny bubbles form on her polished nails. It almost looks like the polish had air bubbles in it. The only thing that seems to work is having her scrub her nails before polishing. The last time she had her nails polished, the bubbles formed a strip right in the center of her thumb nail, and on the rest of her nails the bubbles were all over. I gave her a pedicure not too long ago and she didn’t get any bubbles on her toenails. It just happens on her fingernails. Can you help me solve this mystery?
