I'm afraid I can't help you with your problem, but I have bought AcryGel - on impulse! Trouble is, I haven't done the conversion course. How the hell do you get it off? It takes ages to soak! :cry: Also, do you use like gel e.g. holding the nail upside down to cure so that the apex is right? Do you personally only use as an overlay or tips/both?

Thanx :hug:

If you've got lifting problems then it's usually down to either improper prep or soft tissue contact with your product.

How much prep do you do?

Are you positive you don't touch the skin with your product?

Where are you having the lifting, the free edge, zone 3 or the sidewalls?

although i dont do them anymore i was trained in acrygel by michelle porter a few years ago and was taught to cure upside down to create the apex xx

the burning sensation may also be due to the product being applied too
thick. i went to an acrygel workshop and i was told to cure upside down aswell.
