✨[DAMAGED UPPER DORSAL LAYER of the nail]‼✨

[DAMAGED UPPER DORSAL LAYER]‼
 
The most important top layer of the nail plate is damaged.
 
 
We need this layer to be healthy because it provides a good grip with material.
It's thickness is 30-50 layers.
 
Once it gets damaged, there will be problems, the coatings will lift off.
‼Therefore, it's very important to prepare the nail plate correctly - do not use files under 180 granulations on natural nails, don't cut material off with cutters, and do not touch natural nails with electric file!
 
Second important thing is to use right material accordingly to the natural nails.
And you need to apply it in the right amount, because wrong distribution will damage the nails.
You also need to talk with your clients, to not tear off the material. Because whole dorsal layer of the nail will come off and coatings won't hold on the nails.

✨[COVID NAILS - discoloured or misshapen] ✨

Nails appear discoloured or misshapen a number of weeks – a phenomenon that’s been dubbed “COVID nails”.

One symptom is a red half-moon pattern that forms a convex band over the white area at the base of fingernails. This seems to present earlier than other COVID-related nail complaints, with patients noticing it less than two weeks after being diagnosed. Multiple cases have been reported – but not many.

Red half-moon nail patterns like this are generally rare, and previously haven’t been seen so close to the nail base. So having this pattern appear like this could exclusively be an indication of a COVID-19 infection.

A few patients have also found new horizontal indentations in the bases of the nails of their fingers and toes, which are known as Beau’s lines. These tend to appear four weeks or more after a COVID-19 infection.

Beau’s lines occur when there is a temporary interruption in nail growth due to a physical stress on the...

WHY SHOULD I WEAR GLOVES AS A NAIL TECHNICIAN?

WHY SHOULD I WEAR GLOVES AS A NAIL TECHNICIAN?

You should wear gloves because of:

HYGIENIC REASONS

CHEMICAL EXPOSURE

BLOOD TRANSMISSION RISKS

 FUNGAL INFECTIONS

 BIOLOGICAL HAZARDS


Nail technicians can be exposed to blood borne diseases such as hepatitis, HIV and other infectious diseases.

If a client’s skin is pierced or broken and the nail technician comes into contact with infected blood, technician can contract these potentially life-threatening diseases.

Bad vs. Good Instagram post - do you want more engagement?

Hello NAIL QUEENS!

You are posting and you're engagement is still falling?

What makes a post GOOD if you have a business profile?

 

Here are my advices for you:

 

  Targets everyone! (Example: you are not specific to whom you are talking.)

Targets your ideal customer! (Example: you need to talk to women, mums, business women, ect.)

 

Has no particular point! (Example: only photo of nails, without caption.)

Offers a solution to a problem! (Example: how to take care of your nails.)

 

Has no purpose! (Example: only photo of nails or your dog/cat. )

Has a purpose! (Example: help with advice, be funny, educational, ect.)

 

It's complicated and full of professional terminology. (Example: you are using words like proximal fold, nail matrix, polimerization, exothermal reactions, ect. )

It's easy to understand. (Example: heat spikes, nails lifting, cuticle, curing, ect.)

 

It's self serving. (Example: only plain pictures of nails.)

4 BIGGEST REASONS OF NAIL LIFTING

It can be very frustrating when nails are lifting.

Especially when you put so much effort in it.

Here are the BIGGEST causes of nail lifting:

Different brands are highly unlikely to have the same UV output. UV curing nail product requires the correct level of UV exposure in the proper range of wavelengths at the correct intensity and for the right amount of time. All three of these factors are equally important and none of these should be ignored.

 

If the product is touching the skin, it will lift. And also you are very close to cause allergies.

 

Improper Cuticle work:

- lift cuticle from the nail plate

- remove dead skin

- there must be no bleeding, cuts and injuries!

- pay attention on cuticle around sinuses

 

Improper nail preparation

You have to thoroughly remove oils, contaminants or dead skin from the nail plate, so the product is able to adhere well.

Be aware of old primers and dehydrators.
