IBD Just Gel – Top & Base Coat Curing issues

If you are using Gel Polishes this article is a “MUST READ!”

Some technicians/therapists have been experiencing problems with the IBD Just Gel top and base coat curing in and around the bottle tops and on the brushes.  During application it is imperative to keep out of direct sunlight and UV light.  Additionally these products should ideally be stored in a cool place out of direct sunlight to extend the life of the product.

IBD have advised us of the following:

IE101_Top_CoatIE102_Base_CoatAs nail products in the nail industry have evolved and LED light technology has become popular, ingredients have changed. The new ingredients in the gels are extremely sensitive to light. The bottles are specially made to ensure the product remains in a liquid state, no matter where they are stored. However, when in use there is a chance of them setting if they are exposed to any UV or LED light. This light may not just be from your nail lamp, it may be from several sources, such as you desk lamp, lights in the ceiling, but most commonly it is from the natural day light coming from any windows, sky lights or doors. It does not need to be a sunny day for this to happen, even on a cloudy/wet day there are still UV rays in the atmosphere. The brushes will literally harden whilst you are using them, it happens in seconds. It mainly happens to basecoat and top coat, as they have no colour pigment so the light can penetrate straight through. This is not a product fault and happens industry wide with any products that are LED curable. We are not obliged to replace these products, so you must consider your working environment carefully. If your brush does go stiff, the best thing to do is not put the brush back into the bottle. This will cause all the hardened gel, to crumble off into the bottle, making the product totally useless. Instead, using a tissue pull the brush out of the cap and throw the brush away (it cannot be rescued using acetone, it will just melt the bristles). If you don’t have a new bottle to hand, you can use a nylon gel brush to apply the product. When you get a new bottle you can just top up the bottle with the old brushless bottle.

Useful Tips – Removing Gel & Veneer Nails

With the popularity of gel and veneer nails on the increase, it useful to know some handy hints not just when applying them but also removing them.

Removal of gel polishes may vary depending on what product you have previously used and are comparing Veneer to.  From our experience, most gel polishes take about the same time to soak off, the secret is to use the removal solution from the same company, as these products are tried and tested with each other for the best results.

Gel polish does not dissolve or disperse like some other nail products, but it loosens from the nail plate and is then gently scraped away.

 

Some good pointers to help with Cuccio Veneer removal on an on-going basis:

Cuccio LED fuseBefore applying the product use Cuccio Veneer Fuse (number 2).  This product however can be over used and this will lead to a longer soak off time. Fuse is used to bond the Veneer to the natural nail but there is no need to apply this over the whole nail plate just along zone 1 (free edge) of the nail.  1 dip of the brush into the bottle will be sufficient for all 5 nails on the one hand then a second dip in the bottle for the 5 nails of the other hand.

 

It is also important how you cure the nails, if you are curing for longer than 30 seconds LED or 2 minutes UV, you will be over curing the product which again can lead to extended removal time.  If the customer is a sunbed user (or sun-bather) this will also continue to cure any gel product they are wearing, making it more difficult to remove.

 

Gel soak off

When it comes to the actual removal you do have to use Cuccio Conditioning Soak Off Solution to get the best results.  Acetone alone is very strong but does not contain the added oils that will help to lift the product off quicker.

 

Take a 180 grit file to remove the entire top coat so there is no shine left on the nail.  Shake the soak off solution to ensure the oils have been mixed into the remover.  Saturate a cotton pad with the remover, place the pad over the product and then wrap with foil.  The foil needs to be wrapped upwards over the top of the nail not under the nail. This will ensure that the solution stays in the correct place whilst soaking. I would recommend that you file 1 nail and get it wrapped up before you move onto the next. Keep the hands warm.  Use a warm towel over the top of the hands.  Leave them like this for 10 minutes.

 

Cuccio cuticle removerAfter 10 minutes go to the first nail you wrapped and using the soak off remover tool, gently scrape away the excess products from the nail plate. This tool needs to be used from cuticle to free edge, so pulling the tool towards you. This should effectively remove all excess product. You will now be left with product free nails but also hydrated skin and soft tissue because of the oils in the remover.
