If lifting is the bane of your career, then it may be as simple as using the right tool in the right way.
There are 3 things that can cause lifting:
- Mix ratio
- Primer – what not to do…
There are other Blog Posts that can offer valuable tips on Mix Ratio and Primer use over at www.rebeccaorme.com, click the links above to go check them out later, but in this post lets deal with the 1 number 1 cause of lifting…improper PREP.
If you attend one of our workshops at Nails and Co. this topic comes up all the time, and we tackle it head on! Watching you work is the first job, if you are in front of one of our educators, we can spot where we can help you within a few minutes, across the net its a bit more difficult as tech’s tend to start with “I’m doing everything as it says in the manual / as I was taught” ow that doesn’t help us to help you… so breaking it down is where we begin.
You must begin by creating a clean and dehydrated nail plate – any product won’t adhere to a dusting, contaminated or oily surface.
The best tool we have recommended for over 10 years is the ProPusher. A double ended, dual tool, that when used correctly, does all of the work for you, and you can send your client away KNOWING your prep was on point.
- Gently push back the eponychium with the spoon end of the ProPusher.
