How to maintain a Scrub nail polish?
What is the function of Scrub nail polish?
If the Scrub nail polish is dirty, you can wipe it with a glue remover. Pour a small amount of the debonder onto a cotton pad and wipe the nail surface gently and quickly. Remember that the glue remover should not be used too much, because it may wash off the nail polish and destroy the nail art.
You can re-apply a layer of frosted bright oil on the manicure, apply another layer of frosted seal on the nail polish glue, and dry it with a lamp.
After the surface of the scrub nails is dirty, you can re-apply a layer of scrub seal or scrub polish, and finally illuminate. You can also clean the dirt on the nail surface.
The matte texture of frosted manicures is loved by many girls. It has a high-level sense and looks very fashionable. If the surface of the scrub nail is dirty, you can wipe the surface of the nail with a wet towel to wipe off the dirt.
Since the surface of the Scrub nail polish is not smooth, it is easy to get dirty and not easy to clean. The surface of the nails has a rough feeling. After finishing, pay attention to daily cleaning and do not do rough work. Before choosing to do Scrub nail polish, you should consider the nature of your work. If the working environment is usually dirty, it is not recommended to do Scrub nail polish.
After doing the Scrub nail polish, wash your hands lightly, avoid scratching the nails with hard objects or rough brushes, which will make the nails fragile.
When doing housework, it is recommended to wear rubber gloves, so as to avoid the damage of chemical substances to the nails, and also to avoid the wear and tear of the nails in the process of doing housework.
After doing the Scrub nail polish, when applying hand care products, it is also necessary to take proper care of the cutin around the nails.
Any nail polish that has been painted for a long time will darken or turn yellow in color.
Good matte finish and silky feel.
There are two main effects of the frosted seal: 1 is the matte visual effect. 2 is the smooth feel when touched.
A matte finish can often look luxurious and high-end, and works best with metallic accents.
When you touch it with your hands, you can feel the softness and smoothness of the surface, just like silk or suede leather.

What is Acrylic powder?
There are two components needed. You need the acrylic powder which is a polymer,
And you are going to need the monomer, which is the liquid to blend with the acrylic powder. The monomer reacts with the powder to create a strong nail extension that air dries and can last up to three weeks.
Acrylic powder are typically available in different colors, so clear is just the acrylic powder itself, and then you have your sheer colors, cover colors, color powders and also glitter powders.
Clear is used for almost every single set and it’s going to have the strongest adhesion.
Now that you know what acrylic is, let’s go over what kind of products you are going to need to get started.
You don’t need a lot to get started with acrylic but there are a few key products.
First you will need your acrylic powder, monomer which will react with the powder and a acrylic brush of the size between 12 and 14. and then you will need a dehydrator a primer.
If you are looking to do a nail extension you will need nail tips and nail glue. And of course a nail file and a top coat.
So how to choose these products?
When you are choosing a monomer there are some things that you want to avoid. First, never use a monomer that includes either mma or hema. These ingredients have been banned by the FDA for causing irritation burning and damage to the nail bed. Second, always use a monomer that has a purple tint, because if you use a clear monomer it will work perfectly fine to build your nail, but you are going to get that yellowing on the nail.
When choosing a acrylic powder, make sure that the powders are highly pigmented acrylic powder and have even color coverage.Good acrylic powders will be really smooth and buttery instead of chalky and crumbly.
1: Push back the cuticles
2: File the nail surface
3: Choose a nail tip that fit, and glue it to the nail. Once it’s applied, trim and shape them well.
4: Apply dehydrator only to the natural nail bed. After it’s dried, apply primer also only to the natural nail.
5: Before applying any color to the nail bed, apply a thin layer of clear powder. It helps make your nails stronger.
6: Start about a hairline away from the cuticle and use the body of your brush to work the bead down to the free edge. When it’s done, let it dry for a few minutes.
7: Use a file to clean up the shape, and sharpen those edges.
Then buff away any imperfections
8: The final step, apply top coat, and cure it.
1: Make sure that your monomer stays clean throughout the process. If it starts to get a little bit thick gummy or cloudy, It’s time to change it.
2: The liquid to monomer ratio
If you have too much monomer on your brush you will have a really runny and watery bead. And It’s not going to build any structure. If you don’t get enough monomer on your brush your bead will be too dry, and the powder will stuck to the brush.
The key is that you have to keep practicing and just feel it out.
Reinforced gel polish, also known as hardener ,as the name implies, is a kind of UV gel that increases the firmness. But this is just a simple literal understanding, hardener's function and use can be more than you think.
Reinforced gel polish has the role of preventing nail polish from warping and cracking, protecting the top coat and color gel from scratches ; Reinforced gel polish is a nail polish that is needed when doing manicure, because some people's nails are too thin, applying Reinforced gel polish can increase the thickness and hardness of the nail
A lot of girls like to do a beautiful manicure, but some girls nails are naturally thin and very soft, their manicure is easy to fall off or break very easy, and that's when the Reinforced gel polish will come in handy, reinforced gel polish as the name implies is used to strengthen the nail, it can increase the thickness and hardness of the nail, to avoid the nail too soft and nail polish gel warping, so even if your nails are thin and soft, with the reinforced gel polish used you will not be afraid of the nails breaking.
It is important to note that you don't need to wash the reinforced gel polish after you apply it, so you can put the color gel on directly after it is dried.
Different formulas of reinforcing gel will have different effects, some reinforced gel polish will be a little thinner, some will be a little thicker.
For the less viscous reinforced gel polish, its functions are:
1. leveling the nail surface
2. lighten the pen marks
3. make the pattern more transparent and vibrant.
4. For marble ink effect, Due to its low consistency, the color gel will spread easily on the uncured reinforced gel polish. This way you get the marble ink effect.
For the higher viscosity of the reinforced gel polish,its functions are:
1. strengthen the nail
2. to stick some small decorations
3. to fill in the nail surface.
If your nails are thin, you can choose a thicker reinforcing gel so that your nails are strong enough.
The right steps are:
first apply a base coat, then apply the reinforced gel polish on top of the base coat, and finally apply the color gel.
After applying the color gel, you can apply another layer of reinforced gel polish, which should not be cured, so you can fix some small decorations on the undried reinforced gel polish.
After adding some small decorations, the nail surface will be uneven, so you can choose to use a thinner reinforced gel polish to make the whole surface smoother. A less thick reinforced gel polish will have a good flow, so it will also lighten the brush marks left on the nail surface during the application of the color gel.
You can use a sanding strip to smooth the surface of the nail and apply the top coat at the end and done!
Reinforced gel polish is just another way of saying hardener, and we have a detailed article on unna hardener.
First, when you have curved nails, and your nail surface is relatively flat Then you only need to use hardener.
Hardener has a medium consistency, so it is suitable for micro-construction
Apply a thin layer without curing it under the light.
Then take the gel and brush it back and forth in the middle of the nail surface until it is flat.
Turn the nail upside down and shape it
Three seconds or so, and then cure it immediately. Compared to the natural nail and the build up nail, it is much fuller
The effect will be more obvious after applying color.
Use a builder gel to build up your nails.
It has a higher consistency and leveling, and most importantly, it does not generate too much heat when curing.
Take a small amount of gel for the first time
apply thinly without curing
Take a large bead of gel for the second time
Put it on the back edge of the nail
Push it out with light circular motion
Let the gel flow smoothly by itself
Note that the pen should not leave the gel
Thin all around, thick in the middle, avoid touching the skin
Then turn it upside down and use the pen to paint up and down in the middle
Then you will see the difference.
Today, we want to bring the truth to the nail industry and to all of the Manicure Lovers.
To be precise, what we are going to talk about today is "HEMA Free gel polish"
HEMA is one of those words that if you have heard Hema before, It’s kind of those crazy words that’s taken the industry by storm and people will have a huge reaction to it. And a lot of us don’t even know why we have a huge reaction.
Now let’s talk about what Hema is and why Hema could potentially cause problems
Hema, it’s chemical name is 2-Hydroxyethyl methacrylate
So is Hema a necessary component in gels?
Actually Hema is added because it gives us really good adhesion of the natural nail.
Natural nails are made of keratin and keratin protein likes that are carboxylic acids and Hema is sort of a long-chain carboxylic acid with a hydroxyl group on one end.
The OH group on the Hema allows it to be more miscible with water so if you have water on you fingernails, so it doesn’t reject the Hema. Hema is also really good as its seen it only has one functional reactive site for the UV cured systems or acrylic systems. So because it only has one of those carbon-carbon double bonds on one end that’s the methacrylate, because it only has one of those it only can enter into one portion of a die functional reaction. So it becomes a chain terminator. If chains could get too long they can become too rigid or they can become too brittle or just not good adhesion.
So, Hema isn’t inherently a bad thing because it creates great adhesion to the natural nail plate, it could bonds with that. But one of the downsides of Hema is that it can get out of control if it’s not bound within the formula properly, or if you get it on your skin, and when you are applying things that contain monomeric Hema you want to make sure that you avoid skin contact. And that’s why as you may have see on pretty much every label for nail care products says “avoid skin contact”
But there are ways that we can make formulas even safer than having Hema added.
And so if you see Hema on the ingredient list that’s not necessarily a bad thing, but question might come up what’s the concentration of Hema in a systerm. If the product has 40 percent concentration of Hema in a gel polish system, that increases the chance of becoming allergic to the Hema. There is other molecules that we can use that also have good reactions and good adhesion in a natural nail.Take Hema’s sibling HPMA Hydroxypropyl methacrylate has one additional carbon atom in the backbone and that Hydroxypropyl methacrylate is less allergenic. So some products wind up taking something that has 50％ Hema to 25％Hema and 25％HPMA. And there’s other monomers can be added in there as well.
The answer is “oligomers”. So how it compares to a monomer?
Oligomer is typically molecule has been built based on the backbone of one of the resins so it’s basically Hema but attached to the Oligomer chain. And oligomer is ten times the size of Hema monomer. As a result, It’s less likely to enter you bloodstream if it comes in contact with your skin, which makes it safer.
So why companies choose to put so much monomer instead of choosing to put more oligomers in their product?
The answer is very simple. Because Hema is very cheap, so with more Hema, the price will be cheaper. Because it reduces the raw material cost. Oligomers on the other hand are mega expensive. Compared to Hema the oligomers are about 10 times the cost.
As for unna, our brand was born with the goal of being 100% HEMA-free, and we tested the most common gel polishes on the market that claim to be HEMA-free. The result is that almost none of them can do so.
We are willing to accept the test from the market and we are confident that we will become the new standard in the nail industry. We are looking for partners and agents all over the world. If you want to start your own business, please contact us and we will help you get started.
Many girls have the habit of getting a regular manicure, but if it is not done properly or too often, it can be harmful to the health of your nails.
The nail will be polished first, resulting in thinner, softer nails and damaged nail enamel. After the nails become thin, they will be easily infected by fungus. Many people use their hands to peel off the nail polish when the nail polish is not completely off, so the surface layer of the nail will also be damaged.
Some street stores hygiene is not up to standard. Nail services there have many problems, such as used towels, tweezers, clippers and other tools, can't get frequent disinfection. Using unclean tools, customers can easily be infected with ringworm, gray nails, nail fungus, hepatitis and other diseases.
Many nail salons use cheap nail polish, poor quality nail polish will make the nail surface pigmentation, dry, yellow, brittle, dull, and with irritating odor, also has a negative impact on human health.
Choose your nail salon carefully. be sure to use the proper business production of nail polish.
reduce the frequency of manicure. The nail growth cycle is normally an average of 0.1mm per day.
The average daily nail growth cycle is 0.1mm, and a healthy and intact nail is usually trimmed once every 7 to 11 days. If you do nails for a long time, the chemical elements in the nail polish will affect the growth of the nails, it is recommended to do a manicure once a month, remove it and then do a new one after a week. The nails will be allowed to have a break in between 5~10 days to maintain the natural beauty of the nails.
After doing a manicure, you can use alcohol to disinfect your nails to avoid bacterial.
If you do nail art in summer, it is better to do semi-paste or French style, and try to remove the nails within three weeks.
After removing the nail, you can apply moisturizing cream or cuticle oil. Cuticle Oil can nourish the nail contour and help to get rid of cuticles. Or soak your nails in extra virgin olive oil for 10-15 minutes to help strengthen damaged, fragile or easily broken nails.
Five nail removal tutorials that don't hurt your nails
Doing manicure is fashionable and beautiful, yet it is easy to apply it, but hard to remove it. If you are not careful, your nails will be thinned and become miserable. Next, we will explain how to remove nail polish, nail gel, Acrylic fake nail, builder gel, and acrylic powder nail.
Nail polish is made from a mixture of volatile chemical solvents and colorants, so it can be quickly broken down with alcohol, which are also solvents. You only need to use the alcohol nail removal pack to gently press and rub to quickly remove it. This is currently the quickest and simplest way to remove nail polish.
Nail polish is mainly a mixture of resin, photoinitiator and color powder. After being exposed to a specific UV light, it will harden quickly. The nail gel material will become strong after curing and will not dissolve easily with the solvent. The best way to remove the nail gel is to sand the surface of the top coat to reduce its thickness, then wrap the nail with a nail remover pack for 3 to 5 minutes and remove it. Just gently push and scrape with a steel pusher. If there is still a small amount of gel left, sand it down with a sanding strip.
Fake nails are thicker and harder than nail gel applied with a single color. Even if you use a nail removal kit directly, it will be very slow and hard. The best way is to use nail clippers to cut it short, then use a polisher to polish off a thin layer of the fake nail, then use a nail removal pack to soften the nail for 5 to 10 minutes. After the time is up, use a steel pusher to remove the residue. Remember, if there is still a large area of un-softened gel residue, do not use tools to push, you should continue to wrap it with the nail removal pack and wait for a period of time to remove it again.
Builder gel nail is the hardest and most difficult type of nail product to remove. If you use the incorrect method or forcefully peel it off, you will cause very serious damage to your own nails and a large area of damage overall. The correct way is to cut it short with a nail clipper first and use a sander to thin the gel as well. (Note: If you still need to do the extensions, you don't need to remove all the gel, just cover it and recreate it.) If you don't want to recreate it, just wrap it with a nail removal pack for 5 to 10 minutes and then use a steel pusher to remove it.
Due to the different material of Acrylic powder, the speed of fusion with nail removal pack is faster than builder gel. After you cut it short and polish it, you can remove it after 3 to 5 minutes by wrapping it with a nail removal pack. If there is any residue left after a light push with a steel pusher, just use a sponge to polish it untill it' s clean.
