Well, I do now yeah. I've been taught not to. Yet I've visited many tecs that not only delicately remove the shine, but fairly hard file away on the nail face.
Thing is, the girls I've been to... My nails last, & last, & last, & last!!!! Not a peel, not a lift. Nothing. Even 5 weeks later! So I think there's something in that.
I use the grey buff file. Its high grit. But yes, I do.
It totally does my head in when someone calls with a lifter/peeler.
