Everything impacts. You would know if the glue was ok when you filed. If the tips stayed on then, it was ok. The apex you built absolutely impacts the duration extensions will last. Also the proper tip must be properly fitted. For example, a curved nail needs a curved tip, and a flat nail a flat tip. Fitting a too narrow tip will cause pinging. It's best to pre-tailor your tips for proper fit. Where are you fitting the tip on the nail? It should cover as little of the nail plate as possible for best adhesion of the gel. Also, don't forget that proper prep is essential. All traces of cuticle must be removed from the plate. Make sure to deactivate if your cuticle remover of choice calls for it.

Sorry honey but rubbing her eye with oil on wouldn't make the nail come off, unless it somehow got on there during your prep stage where it would compromise the bonding process. It would have to be something else. X

Thorough cleansing of the nail plate prior to application would remove any oil do it's doubtful that was the cause X
