Oh dear please help!

I am trained in Gel nail extentions amongst other things. Yesterday I put on a set of nails on myself, which usually look great. I was able to completely lift off the entire Gel application in one piece, leaving just the glued on tip. This happened with nearly all of my nails. I applied 3 coats of Gel to each of my nails.

I am 4 months pregnant so thought maybe this might be affecting it but I really don't think so. I am now feeling really jaded and my confidence is starting to lack.

Any ideas.

Your profile says you use star nails...??

Did you do anything different to you usually do...?....Has this happened before...?

Sounds like either it's not curing, or you haven't properly prepared your nailplate. Can you describe what you are doing BEFORE gel application?

Oh and what Angie said ;)

Just a thought - what about the bulbs in your lamp? Are they past their best and so not curing the gel?

What these guys said: check your lamp's bulbs, and check your prep! :D
