Just as an FYI, this was part of another thread that got way off topic so I split it. - The geek.
Don't give up I used to have a lifting problem too and my problem was I was not doing a good enough prep. Read the Nail Geeks tutoral on the perfect prep and if you are already following this exactly its not your prep it something else but I would say it might be the lack for Scrub Fresh.
Let me know how you get on and best of luck
