stress strip?

    We've been taught fibreglass at college but no mention has been made of a stress strip. I first thought that maybe it was just for silk but I've now seen it mentioned regarding fibreglass too. Can anyone explain exactly why, where and how I use it? Is it necessary for every client or just those with weak nails?

    Hi, have you tried searching for 'stress strip'? i just had a look and was going to paste a thread in here for you to look at, but there are too many to choose from! I would say you only need to stress strip if you're client is particularly heavy handed or has weak nails. I was taught to put an additional strip across the nail in zone 2. Ask Ruth (Nails in London 1) cos shes the fibreglass queen! lol hth anyway... x
