TROUBLESHOOTING

The #1 issue most nail technicians experience with acrylic is lifting. Here are some solutions:

• Make sure you are comfortable and practiced with the particular acrylic system you have chosen. • Each system requires the knowledge of different mixing ratios. Practice, practice, practice.

• Always follow the 10-Step Quick Prep procedure for best results (See Page 5).

• Clean the side walls and cuticle area. Product left behind will defnitely lead to lifting and other issues. • Always wipe your brush clean between applications to prevent contamination of nail liquid. • Remove oils from nail plates.

• Don’t rush through procedures. Taking care during prep and application will help control issues.

Nail Fungus

• Natural nails lifting from the nail bed is the most common sign of a fungal infection. • Do not confuse nail fungus with the green or black mold that can be fled off the nail plate.

• Always use Refreshing Mint Anti-Spray ™ prior to application of nail enhancements to help prevent the growth of fungus.

• Do not perform enhancement services on new clients with fungal infections. You may perform a manicure service and apply an anti-fungal treatment. Instruct the client about at-home application of anti-fungal treatments. Retail the anti-fungal treatment to the client and schedule a follow-up. • In the event of fungal infection beneath enhancements, either use an anti-fungal treatment that works with enhancements or remove the enhancements and follow the above course of action. • In the event of a persistent or serious fungal infection, refer client to a physician for treatment.
