I am trained in marvel lash and have now done about 10 sets of lash extensions and 3 sets of express lash.

Despite taking upto 3 hours per set, the glue still clings the eyelashes together and takes far too long to set. I apply 4-5 on each eye to allow drying time but the clinging still occurs!

Then the lashes are only lasting a week despite following full aftercare!!!

I have done some for free and some for cost but cannot charge full price for these until they last!

Also, if I can figure how to put a pic on here, do they look applied incorrectly?

Any help appreciated x

Thank you x

I knew from reading the subject it would be Marvel lash :( I had the same problem and gave up!!! (I hadn't discovered salon geek by then lol) from what I've read... Flirties seems like a very popular long lasting quickish drying glue :) hth xxx

I absolutely love flirties, the glue is an absolute joy to work with and sets quite fast (I use expert speed and strength). The ladies at wow factor are so lovely and helpful and ordering is always easy and efficient. On top of this my clients are very happy! My average client infill time is 4 weeks. Really since I converted to flirties, lash extensions have transformed my business! I only completed my training in October and started offering them back in Jan and they are now my most popular treatment :) x

Thank you guys. Going to order flirties glue on Monday and see how I get on with it. I apply quite fast so it's infuriating waiting for marvel to set! :)

I use a jade stone which keeps the glue cool to stop it thickening, a well ventilated room is also important, I trained in Lash Perfect lashes, I've never had any complaints & they never stick together, Lash Perfect have a new adhesive which is fab but I think you would need to be Lash Perfect trained to buy it, just make sure you separate some lashes & pin them out of the way with a little tape, these are taken down half way through & lashes applied.

Happy lashing :)

I just tilt the ring slightly depending which eye I'm working on :-D I did a set with flirties glue today and it set much quicker but the client wasn't keen on the fumes...

Marvel is the only glue that has never bothered my clients, so i worry about that, it seems the stronger and better the glue the stronger the fumes. Just wait 3 mins after all done, waft a little with a fan or mini blower and when they open they should be fine.

I hereby admit to opening clients eyes slightly to get the fine inner lashes, i darent to that with flirties!!

Have you asked your insurance if you need to be firties trained to swap glue? x
