Hi, I have gone through my prep and all is good, I think I will give double wipe and see if it is still the same. I have 3 brushes and all keep doing the same??? it is with all my powders, so I would say prep too??? at a loses

Perhaps you are applying it and brushing it forward and removing most of it or making it patchy and uneven in zone 3.

Your profile says you have been doing nails for about a year. This should really not be happening. I suggest a 121 with an eductor to watch how you are working. It is really a futile excercise to ask on a web site when peeps can't actually see what you are doing. Not all problems are down to prep.

Do you run a business or just do part time nails? How many clients would you say you see in a week?

Maybe try working a little drier than you are at the moment in that zone and dont forget to press it into position, before smoothing into z2. Also, try using a higher grit (smoother) file when refining, this might help too.

This kept happening to me a while back. It was because I was working too wet - so I was putting my product in z3 and then pulling it out of z3 into z2.

With the weather change, you might find that your ratio just needs adjusting slightly - It is something that everyone has to do - and the fact that you are mobile (like me) means that you can never be sure of how hot or cold an environment you will be working in! So don't let this knock your confidence!!!

These are just ideas. Best to speak with your educator.

Well I m here on site so use me and abuse me as you wish. I'm sure we can get to the bottom of it with a little discussion.

You are lacking confidence because you are not seeing enough people or doing enough nails. Best way is to jump into the business with both feet but I see you areone busy lady with 4 children ... still ... so was I when I started so it can be done. :hug:

Is t possible that you are working much quicker now you have been doing nails for a while, and when you come to file on the fresh l&p that it is not quite cured? Maybe try leaving it a bit longer (or making your room a bit warmer lol)
