How to Waterproof the Nail Plate (& why!)

Hey Nail Pro! Do you have some services that just don’t wear a full two weeks without chipping, lifting or peeling? You double-checked your protocol, call support hotlines, & ask fellow Nail Pros for advice, only to confirm that YES, you’re following system protocol but not getting the right results?

It may not be your fault…

Natural nail health is an important factor in nail coating wearability, especially with natural nail coatings like manicures & Shellac. Generally speaking, the healthier the nail, the better a coating will wear.

Lots of different things affect nail health, some within the Nail Pro’s control & some not. Exposure to water is a common environmental cause of nail damage. Thankfully, it’s easy to identify & fix–but it needs to be addressed by both client & Nail Pro.
