Hi, I qualified in Acrylic Extensions at the beginning of the year and I haven't had any complaints but my regular client had these done and after a couple of days they started to crack around the edges and a nail had snapped off!! She said she's quite heavy handed and nothing I had done but I would like to know why this has happened and how can I prevent this from happening again? I use Nouveau liquid and powder.
Hi and welcome x

You would be best putting this post in the nail geek.

I have moved this into the main Nail Gek forum.

Can you give us some more information though, possibly list your steps for prep and application.

If the nails are lifting and cracking at the sides possibly your prep has not been thorough enough and the product has not adhered properly to the nail.
