Why do tiny white spots appear on my finished acrylics?

When I apply acrylic I sometimes get tiny white spots in my finished product. I was told that this could be from contaminated powder. I also sometimes get bubbles with the white spots. I assume the bubbles are form too much liquid to powder.

Why do my clients' acrylic nails look discolored?

I am a new tech and have noticed that two of my clients who have been wearing acrylics for more than three months have discolored nails. One client’s nails look gray and the other’s nails have a yellow-orange tinge. What am I doing wrong?

Is acrylic causing curling nails?

I have an acrylic client whose nails have been healthy for many years. Recently, one of her thumbnails has begun to curl upward, about ¾ of the way up from the cuticle, toward the tip, but still well into the nail bed area. Each time I see her, it has curled more. I keep the nail trimmed as short as possible to avoid her pulling it on accidentally, and I keep it capped with acrylic (she doesn’t want me to remove the acrylic unless I absolutely have to.) It seems like the acrylic is not adhering to her thumbnail as well as it should. I don’t know if it’s because it’s short and she’s using it differently, or if it has something to do with the curling. Please advise.
