gel polish adhering to acrylic
#1
Help! I can't get gel polish to stick on my clients acrylic nails. Is there a trick? It just peels off after about a week.

Make sure the nail is not too smooth. Nothing softer than a new 100 grit sponge buffer, or 180 grit file is even better. Also avoid wiping the nail with cleanser. And if you do, be sure the nail is completely dry before you apply the polish. Last thing wrap the edges with all coats.

Are you using base coat? Also I will use protein bond prior to gel polish.
