Hmm wierd one this...did a client last night and one pink the acrylic was soft when I filed it, now I now she uses acetone free polish remover (cause I sold it her) and it was out on the side...

If you use too much nail polish remover it makes the acrylic go soft. Geeg wrote a piece about it a few weeks back.

In my capacity of Sherlock Holmes, i think Vicky might be right coz if the polish remover was on the side, the chances are she'd only just taken off the nail polish so it was a little softened and hadnt had a chance to harden.

I have to say i agree, also if you keep chanding your nail polish, it will break the L&P down, so it will be soft as said previously.

She had nail art on for 3 weeks so only took the polish off that day - so I am surprised it could have broken it down so fast...yikes

Which makes me even more think that she'd only just removed it!!!

I cant understand this theory of one time useage effecting the L&P - yes it the client changes their polish daily...what interesting is I change my polish/nail art every 5th day sometimes sooner but it has never effected my L&P nails - I wonder if its down to a combination of things?

Yeah, that's definitely the feeling i'm getting! It's mighty quiet out there!!!! We'll have to either shout louder or else wait for their alarm clocks to go off ;)

Not all non-acetone removers contain the same solvents!!

Some non acetone removers can affect a product more than others. It depends on what she has used and how much of it she has used and how long she has rubbed away at at the product etc. But I feel sure it is the remover at the root of the probelm.
