Hi ladies

Hoping someone can help.

I done a pink and white ombré set last week. I’ve done them many times before but it has been a week and she has messaged me with a picture and the gel top coat has peeled off on 2 nails.

any ideas on why this would happen?

I always cap the free edge.
Should I be using a base coat if I’m not using a gel colour?

Thanks
natasha

Have you possibly buffed the nails too smooth? Unless it’s a dark colour I just finish with a 180 grit

It could also be something your client has used that’s caused it. Chemicals in cleaning products etc. Worst culprit I’ve found is the spray cleaner for sunbeds. I’ve had 3 clients damage their top coat with this straight after their appointment.

Hey
thank you for your reply
I also file the nail with a 180 grit. I don’t buff to shine at all!
She came back and I re done the top coat but I did use a base under it as I was scared
I use the same top coat 5 times a day and I’ve never had a problem ‍♀
Absolutely hate post issues though
