problems with nail foils

Postby itsallaboutyou » Mon May 23, 2011 6:48 pm

ok i need some help. years ago i was using foils and never had a problem with them coming off.. i reciently started doing it again as my clients just absolutely love them, but im finding after a day it is started to chip off. im doing it right, paint the glue on, wait for it to dry, then press the foil on, but wether i use a gel top coat or fast drying top coat, it chips off, what am i doing wrong????

I find i need to use a gel over the top, the uv gel top coat will chip off and a normal top coat needs to be reapplied regularly.
