The time frame for a client returning for maintenance on a liquid powder system is the same as for any other system. It is the growth rate of the natural nail that will determine the frequency of the appointment and it’s your job as the nail technician to advise and book your client in for the appropriate return time.
Have your consultation card ready so when she returns you can assess her nails, making note of any damages or repairs that may need doing during the treatment.
The return period for this treatment is usually 3-4 weeks, some clients will get longer out of there extensions before this is required where others will get less, this is why it is important to document the growth pattern so you know your client will always return at the correct time ensuring her nails remain strong, healthy and always look there best, (she is an advert for your business and skills so it is in your benefit to maintain these appointments)
The purpose of a re-balance/re-white is simple. It is to re-balance the nail back into its correct zone pattern 1, 2&3. In the 3-4 week period your client is away her natural nail will grow underneath forcing the extension to grow up with the nail, this leaves the extension unbalanced and prone to weakness and cracking. You will see new growth of natural nail at zone 3. Zone 2 (the apex, stress area) will of grown into zone 1 and you will see the free edge of the natural nail below the white smile line. (This will almost be hanging off)
To rebalance follow these steps.
*Note, clean your brush on some tissue or a nail wipe after you have finished you bead application and before you put it back into your liquid, this will stop your monomer from becoming contaminated, and any lumps forming in the bristles of your brush.
