acrylic nails discoloured why? - 28-04-06, 11:17 AM

Hi there

I done some acrylic nails last week and she rang me up saying her nails have gone discoloured. She came down today to show me they are slightly yellow and i had asked her if she wares gloves or changed any of her household products and she said no. I took the top coat off and put some IBD bright acrylic top coat on but to be honest it didn't make any difference. This is a new client so i don't know what i done wrong. She came back again today stating her nails glow when she goes on the sunbed and she didn't like it. Sunbed i said that is what is causing your nails to discolour (is this right?). She had her nails done before at NSS and they didn't dicolour so what can i do to correct this. Please advise me

It didn't state on the bottle it was a UV top coat because i asked the supplier first because the writting on the back was that small i couldn't read it. She read it out to me " apply one coat over the acrylic to whiten and brighten" I have used this on another client yesterday and she is going night clubbing Saturday do you think anyone will notice her nail lol.

You should be using a UV protective top coat if she is using a sunbed - alternatively use a product that has uv inhibitors in it so that it doesn't discolour. Ask your client which she prefers to put up with - glowing in the sunbed or yellowing afterwards LOL.

thanks for your advice. Would the sunbed cause the acrylic to discolour. Sorry i am new at this and only do nails part time.

This is a possibility - Ages ago, before I moved back to using Creative, I had a set of l&p nails on and I went out one day without any varnish on and they turned bright yellow in the sun - not a good look - it did fade when I came out of the sun but not completely.

I have had the same happen to one of my clients . She goes on the sunbed most days for up to 1hr at a time ...... and no matter what i put on her nails they always go a creamy colour because of the amount of time she spends on the sunbed x

This would surely be a use for the fingerspas LOL - sell them as a retail product to your sunbed users to protect their nails.

Just a thought LOL - Would it work?

Hi,
It can also be sunbed creams sometimes they have a slight amount of fake tan in them and also sun creams especially if they are a high factor can make your nails sticky.

i told her this but she thinks it's my products because she use to have her nails done at a NSS place and she said she used the sun bed then and they never went discolored.

many thanks for all your replies.
