Why does my American pose not hold?

A well done American pose should last up to four weeks, but there are various factors that affect the durability of the American pose. In this article, your nail supply expert Maryton will tell you the most common causes why an American pose doesn’t hold.

Preparation of natural nails

Thoroughly degrease and prepare the surface of the nail before applying the primer. Skipping this step compromises the hold of the pose.

The right amount of product

Optimal adhesion can’t be guaranteed if you don’t put enough gel in the capsule. Conversely, if you put too much gel, the overflowing gel will also cause the American pose to come off.

Choice of size

A capsule that is too large or too small can cause the American pose to fall off. So, the capsule must cover the entire nail perfectly from one edge to the other.

The technique

Even if the American pose is easy and quick, you have to master the technique. Once acquired, perfection will come with practice and you will love to make beautiful quick and solid poses!  

OK! I believe you have know the most common causes why an American pose doesn’t hold. In addition, I advise you to invest in a complete professional manicure kit to care for your nails!
