Lifting or separating Tips on your Nail Wraps? This is a common issue and I covered it in my Mani Monday which is Live on my facebook Page every Monday at 10am. The great news is this issue is easily rectified.
Lifting or Separating Tips on your Nail Wraps?
The above picture is one sent in by one of my customers. It is a common question and if have Lifting or Separating Tips on your Nail wraps the solution is the same fairly easy and is the same for lifting or separating issues.
Before I talk about the solution, let’s just go through what causes it. It is usually caused by either too rigorous filing or filing on a slanty angle, ie; anything other than a 90º angle.
So, the solution is an easy one…
- Take your time with filing and ensure you are filing in a downward motion rather than back and forth
- File at a 90º angle
- Do not be tempted to pull the excess wrap off
- Use a Glass Nail File to tidy and smooth any rough surface remaining
The video below shows exactly these methods
If filed correctly and by using the methods in the video and listed above your wraps should last up 2 weeks on your Manicure and up to 6 weeks on your pedicure.
In future Mani Monday’s we will also be covering Nail preparation as this is one of the most important steps for longevity. We will also cover various application techniques and why they are used. In fact next we will be starting this by covering how to stop wrinkles, this is particularly important for those that have curved nails (like myself) as it is a common issue.
As I mentioned next Monday I will also be covering wrinkles, crinkles which ever wording you happen to use and how to ensure you get a smooth application.
I look forward to seeing you next monday at 10am
