Common problems and reasons for the use of gel polish
Cause of warping:
1. Due to the incomplete cleaning of real nails, the oil film on the nail surface is not cleaned, the dead skin is not trimmed completely, or the nail surface is rubbed continuously after the nail polish is prepared, it is easy to cause warping.
2. Mix different brands of nail polish. When making nail polish, the editor recommends using the same brand from the base glue to the seal layer to avoid adverse consequences caused by mixing different brands, such as warping.
3. Use dry adhesive for crystal nails. In order to keep the gel polish on the nail surface for a longer time, some manicurists use the dry adhesive for crystal nails. The result is just the opposite, and the gel polish peels off faster.
Reason for stratification:
1. The sealant of the same brand product is not used;
2. There is no use of a removable seal that can be scrubbed;
3. The front edge of the nail is not in place, and the small gap left causes air to enter;
4. After the colored glue is exposed to light, scrub it with a cleaning solution, and then apply a sealing layer. There is no need to scrub after the color glue is exposed to light, and the direct coating of the sealing layer will avoid delamination;
5. The color glue layer is too thick, and the sealing layer is too thick.
Cause of discoloration:
1. If the seal coat is too thick, it is advisable to apply the seal coat once. If it is applied more than twice, the color will be cast;
2. The light time of the sealing layer is too long, and the light time of the sealing layer should not exceed 2 minutes. If the light time is too long, yellowing will appear.
