Hi,

I've been recently trying gel enhancements, using the Brisa system. All turned out well, still need a bit of practice. But I've noticed on the set i put on my sister. The gel is lifting off the tip but the rest around the cuticle and sides is fine.

This hasn't happened with acrylic before. I thought I did everything as per instructions but maybe not.

I don't really want to offer them until I have it right, so any ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks


Toni

I dont use Brisa but im sure someone who does will be able to help.

Are you bringing the gel over the free edge before it is cured??

Are you blending the tip up to a 180 grit finish?

I use Bio Sculpture and this happened to me the first time I used it - you need to buff the tip to put a "key" on the nail for the gel to adhere to. I use a white block on my tip, remove any dust and then the gel stays put!!

Thanks,

I'd buffed the tip where I had put it on the nail, but i hadn't buffed the rest of the tip.
