Why Do Nails Lift?
4 "BIG PROBLEMS" which cause "LIFTING" are:
#1 - Skin Growing Onto the Natural Nail-Plate
#2 - Shiny Smooth Nail-Plate
#3 - Wrong Type of Nail Primer
#4 - Dead Skin and Dirty Nail Dust is not removed properly
"FIRST STEP" in eliminating LIFTING: Use the Tammy Taylor "Disposable" 100-Grit Purple Terminator "Etcher Strips"
Just Prepping the natural nails with your Tammy Taylor "Etcher" will help "eliminate about 75% of all "LIFTING" PROBLEMS.
- Acrylic will not adhere to a "SMOOTH" or "SHINY" surface or if there is any "SKIN GROWN onto the nail-plate" which is "not" removed.
- If the Natural Nail surface has any shiny spots, there will be lifting.
- Using the Tammy Taylor Disposable 100-Grit Purple Terminator "Etcher": Etch the way the nail grows; this pushes back the cuticles, removes any skin which has grown onto the nail plate and creates little hills & valleys on the natural nail to create a rough, porous surface for the Acrylic Nail to adhere.
- Etching the way the natural nail grows, with a Tammy Taylor Disposable 100-Grit Purple Terminator "Etcher" does not cause damage to the natural nail.
- Warning: Do Not Use a drill on a natural nail to etch; this will cause the natural nail to become thinner and damaged; which causes more lifting. A drill should never be used to Etch any natural fingernail.
- Do Not Use an old, used file to etch, or you will cause lifting.
- The Tammy Taylor Disposable 100-Grit Purple Terminator "Etcher" works great, because you use a brand new 100-Grit Purple Terminator "Etcher" Strip on each client; this insures excellent preparation to eliminate lifting, and it is very economical.
"SECOND STEP" in eliminating LIFTING: Use the Tammy Taylor "Plastic Manicure Brush"
Warning: Do not use a cosmetic or a fluffy brush to dust off the nails after etching, as this can spread germs, mold and fungus, from one client to the next; as well as put dust and oil on the nail, which causes lifting.
- Always use a Tammy Taylor "Plastic Manicure Brush" to clean the nail dust off the nail after etching.
- After etching, there are white particles on the nail-plate. These white particles are dead skin and dirty nail dust.
- If these particles are not removed, they will clog the hills & valleys created by etching.
- If these particles are not removed, the nail primer and the product will not flow properly, which will stop adhesion and cause lifting.
"THIRD STEP" in eliminating LIFTING: Use the Tammy Taylor "NON-LIFTING NAIL PRIMER"
- Use your Tammy Taylor "NON-LIFTING NAIL PRIMER" with any brand of acrylic nail products, which you may presently be using.
- No other nail primer will give you better results, consistently and on every client.
- Warning: Do "Not" use any type of a pre-primer, nail fresh, pre-bond, nail prep or scrub for adhesion. Using any type of pre-prime or cleansers, especially anything with alcohol in it, can actually cause lifting, and cost you a lot of money, "time" and aggravation.
- Make sure the Tammy Taylor "NON-LIFTING NAIL PRIMER" is still "wet" when acrylic is applied.
- Use 2-COATS of Tammy Taylor "NON-LIFTING NAIL PRIMER".
- Let the 1st COAT of Tammy Taylor "NON-LIFTING NAIL PRIMER" "dry". This will dry out the oils on the nail and kill the germs on the nail.
- The 2nd COAT of Tammy Taylor "NON-LIFTING NAIL PRIMER" needs to be applied one nail at a time; this will insure your nail primer is still "wet" when the "wet" acrylic is applied.
- The "wet" Tammy Taylor "NON-LIFTING NAIL PRIMER" and "wet" acrylic blend together causing a chemical reaction, which pulls the product into the hills & valleys on the nails.
- Note: If the second coat of Tammy Taylor "NON-LIFTING NAIL PRIMER" dries then apply a third coat; make sure Primer is "wet" when acrylic is applied.
- Helpful Pointers:
- To eliminate Fill-LINES and a lot of extra work, try "not" to nip the acrylic back when doing a fill; just file the acrylic nail flush with the natural nail. But... if lifting occurs, you will need to nip, so moisture does not get trapped under the acrylic.
Do "not" use a pump for the nail liquid, because it will not allow you to submerge your brush properly, and without the proper amount of liquid for good product consistency, it can cause lifting. Also, pumps can cause liquid contamination, which causes lifting and yellowing.
