its a bacterial infection....stick on nails are known for causing this due to the nails not being properly prepped and moisture getting under the nails.

Once the stick on's are removed and the air gets to them they should be fine...the green stain is actually bacteria poo :lol: and will have to grow out...keep them clean and don't stick any more nails on.

This what we call a greenie, its caused from moisture getting trapped between the natural nail and false glue on nail,

what angie said lol...also there is no reason really why artificial nail enhancements..such as acrylic (l+P) should not be lasting on you...
I have a couple of hairdresser clients and their nails last fine,
2-3 weeks inbetween appointments as usual..no lifting or anything.
So it really shouldn't be a problem if they are applied correctly

If you have such severe problems with your nails then you shouldnt be wearing things like these stick ons as they will just be cause more damage than is already there.

You really need to take more care of your nails in a different way. What do the professional say you should do that you have shown your nails to?

but you pay for stick ons and they get tint on...and green stains on your nails....:lol:

I use a non soak off gel and do 4 hairdressers...not one of them gets stained nails from tint...it wipes off...100% cos its non porous.

Your a hairdresser, what would you say to someone who said...."i'll just bleach my own hair cos its cheeper"...???? i am guessing something like...i wouldn't recommend you do that as you could damage your hair, go to a professional if you want it done right and safe.

Stick on nails are not designed for wearing for 4 weeks at time...every month....the are designed to be used as a one off for special occasions for people who don't/cant have enhancements perminately.....and even then i would recommend having them applied by a pro.
