Everything About Gel Nail Lifts

Liftings are places where the material (e.g. the gel model) detaches (lifts) from the natural nail. Liftings must always be completely removed as quickly as possible to avoid diseases caused by moisture and bacteria. 

In order for your best gel polish to be perfect, you have to pay attention to a few things so that no lifting occurs and, as a result, your nail design is impaired in the hold.

One reason for liftings is insufficient degreasing of the natural nail. The degreasing is carried out with a primer adhesion promoter and is, therefore, one of the most important basics to get enough hold in the modeling and thus avoid problems.

Another source of error arises if you do not matt your nail surface completely and properly with the help of a buffer before the nail modeling and thus prepare it for the nail design. Lifting occurs particularly when small areas are overlooked along the cuticle, especially the nail fold.

A manicure before nail modeling causes the natural nails to absorb too much moisture, which impairs the adhesion of the gel. Please wait a certain amount of time after the manicure and then create your nail modeling.

The correct coating of each layer in nail modeling is particularly important. If this information is not followed, the corners and edges of the fingernails will lift and the modeling will flake off and you will no longer be able to enjoy the nail design.

Please make sure not to touch your hair when modeling your nails, as this stimulates the formation of sebum and leaves a greasy film on your nails. This can lead to lifting, which can ultimately lead to the modeling flaking off.
