the lady is coming back tomorrow to have l&p put on should i do this for free help ?

hi there

things i can't see here are

removing shine from nail
apply bond before tip application not after

i personally would not use a nail blender

hope this helps but i'm sure ruth will give you some more advice ;)
I hope I have helped with this on your previous post Vicky ;)
Right Hun,
Shape the nail ok.........
Cuticle work............does this include cuticle remover???
Side walls too???
Scrubfresh ok.....try a bit of nailfresh and then scrubfresh again....You could even use some acid free Primer after this for clients with very oily nail plates......make sure all products are dry before proceeding to the bond stage........then bond on the natural nail........ apply tip.......
blend tip.........tip blender is a form of acetone and can lead to product brake down....So I wouldn't use it....remove any dust after blending.... then bond again........ then the fibreglass or the silk.......... bond again slowly, so all the bond is soaked up nicely...... build and activate.........Tidy up edges of nail with soft file and a light buff over the nail to remove any blast spray activator.........Then boost, a small bead and work the bead with the blast activator.............Do this 2x......then proceed to the finishing stages.............

Hope this helps you a little bit........

It would help you , if the client could bring in the fallen off tips, so you can see what happened.......... check her nail bed for stress areas or trauma.......this way you can tell, if they had a little help from the client !!!!

love Ruth xxx
