:irked: Just wondering if anyone can explain a bit more to me about 'resin' and how it is used over the natural nail and is it much different to brush on nail glue as keep getting peeps in with v strong natural nails that split across the nail plate! God i love this site i am the only beautician at a hair salon its great to get advice from other technicians/therapists! L x

Brush on nail glue is for applying tips to the natural free edge of the nail,
resin can also be used in this way but it is intended for the wrap systems ie fibre glass, silk hth

So what would you recommend for a split natural nail if the client doesn't want an NNO just to stick the nail together i don't do these silk wrap thingy bobs! :irked: L x

The EC Resin system is used fo various services............
Enhancements, repairs and natural nail wraps..........
The brush on resin is easier to use, as you control the amount of resin used via a brush.
Resin comes in different viscosities and is used to wet and build the nail structure.
EC Resin in the enhancement service is a linear polymer and needs the mesh to reinforce its structure.
I have listed a few articles that may help a little.........
To get the best out of this fab system, I would recommend a training course. Its an easy system, but like everything, its only easy if you know how xxxx

You can use resin just by itself but it wont last very long......You will need something to hold the repair together, a strip of mesh or silk.......or else it will just crack and give way at the next little mishap......HTH
