I have a client that has hardly any free range and I have been using the elation tips and she has had two breakages in two days of application. She said its at the ends they are breaking. Do you think fuller tips are needed any advice please ?
If you are sure you have correctly placed the apex, then your next point of investigation is the lateral side walls, if you thin the gel too much down the sides you will compromise the structure and they will snap at the sidewalls.thanks for the reply. I use nsi performance. I prep the nail. Used binder. Think layer of gel and cured and then built a apex layer. Nsi said if I did not completely buff the nail tip the gel would slide, my Other clients have not had this. Which was making me think maybe it is the tip as the natural nails are short and no free edge.
Just to clarify this 'slippage' would only happen before curing, not after, once it's cured its rock solid and it can't slip off. You buff the tip prior to application to aid adhesion, two shiny surfaces will struggle to stick together, so you buff one to make it slightly rough so the gel has something to 'grip' on to, hence stopping it 'slipping off' before it's cured.Nsi said if I did not completely buff the nail tip the gel would slide
