Acrylic Fails

Most of the Fails are due to bad prep.
Clean nails that have been degreased and scuffed  Correctly should have no issues and last a good time.

Bonder Degreaser PH Balance

A degreaser that take out the oils and moisture like our bonder helps.
Although this will not leave the nails scuffed or marked so a gentle file of the nails before applying the degreaser works wonders.
As good as a primer use correctly with a more aggressive Dehydration

Sourcing

Our acrylic liquid is sourced from one of the 3 largest Chemical companies in the world.
This company creates 9 types of liquid in 3 main shades but will match any pantone colour if needed.
This company supplies Liquids for over 40,000 other brand names so the chance of getting the same liquid in another company name / logo is high.
Some of the big names just change the colour or add traces of chemicals to make them unique as well as a slight scent.
