It could be, but then I would say that Bio Sculpture simply isnt suited to some nail types, just like other enhancements not being suited to everyone either.
I have 99% that its absolutely great on, then there are the odd others who it doesnt matter what gel combination I try them with it just lifts off (even with scrubfresh & doing everything possible to make them work capping free edge, not capping free edge. These clients swear theyve not picked at them or not used gloves or subjected them to cleaning products, but then I suppose theres always going to be those that will try there luck ;z

Sometimes Fluoxetine, just like any other medication, can change nails and give unpredictable results when product is used over them.
I found that when I was on it, I couldn't wear L&P as it just lifted within a couple of days. Now I'm not on the medication, I can wear it no problem... it's worth thinking about.
If these medications can cause all sorts of side effects in your body, and cause changes in your skin and hair, why not nails? Each client is different and medication affects everyone in different ways.
Have you tried removing the shine from her nail with a soft buffer and giving them a good scrub with Scrubfresh, for example, before you apply the overlay?
