Here are a few precautions should be taken:
- Always be careful not to touch the natural nail when leveling the overlay.
- Always make a continuous movement either from the right end to the left end, don’t go in both directions.
- After each movement, raise the mouthpiece to prevent the heat effect.
Start with the cuticle area and adapt the thickness of the covering to prevent the nail from being too thick during regrowth. Then make a nice domed effect in the center of the nail to create the stress point. Finish with the tip of the nail, taking care not to thin it too much, you still don’t want your nails to break prematurely!
