Advice for hot days

The gels soften in the big heat, and flow to the lateral nail folds earlier than usual. We can avoid it by cooling the gel in the fridge.

XTREME CLEAR – THICKER GEL IN THE HOT DAYS
 
The gels soften in the big heat, and flow to the lateral nail folds earlier than usual. We can defend this by cooling the gel in the fridge. If we have more dishes of gel, we can work with one, while the other one is cooling. If we cannot solve this, apply Crystal Nails Xtreme Clear gel.
 
UV FILTER TOP COAT
 
In the summer even the gels with maximum non-yellowing protection can slightly turn into yellow thanks to the chemical effects of the sun creams and the intense doze of UV irradiation. In this case the UV Filter top coat can help – as its name shows- filters like the sun creams.
 
GELS, CURING FASTER
 
The over-curing of the gels can be also a problem. In the summer, the material cures faster, do not exceed the necessary curing time.
 
ATTENTION! THEY CAN CAUSE HEAT SPIKE!
 
In the summer heat, even the no-heat-spike gels can cause a little burning sensation, because the curing starts from 50 °F higher. Moreover the material is softer, so the maximum temperature can be 68-86 °F higher. This can cause burning sensation for a client who has thin nails. In this case, place the hand of the client to scattered light (just before the lamp) for 10-20 seconds, then into the lamp for 2,5 minutes.
 
UV RADIATION CAN CURE THE GELS, WHICH WERE LEFT OPENED
 
The Uv radiation is very strong in the summer, the reflected light can cure the gels left opened, even in shade. So it is suggested to put the cap on the dish during the work process!
 
BUILDER CLEAR I.
 
Tip for the users of the Crystal Nails Builder Clear I.: this gel has a thicker sticky layer during the curing, so if we want to sculpt French nails, it is worth to pull the sticky part with a wiped brush. The white gel comes after it. With this we will achieve, the white material will not slip on the putty, so we can wipe the smile line crisper.
 
TOP SEAL
 
As Top Seal is a denser shine gel, a thicker surface can be created with it on the nail. It camouflages the superficial imperfections, and functions as a protective layer e.g.: on acryl paints, it does not let the decoration fray. Due to its density, it is more optimal use it in the summer, because it softens to heat and it is easier to handle.
