Q: My husband wants to use Knockout Nails but he doesn’t want anyone to know he has it on.
A: That’s fine, he can use the Knockout Nails Smoother File to remove the high gloss shine.
Q: My Hardener started to lift near my cuticles. Why is this happening?
A: If your hands are constantly in water, your Hardener may begin to loosen from the nail. Water makes your nail plate swell up causing the Hardener to lift. It is very easy to fix. Smooth the nail with the Nail Smoother, then use the Cleaner on the surface of the nail. Apply Bonder to the area that is lifting. Be sure to allow the Bonder to get between the nail and the lifting Hardener. Allow bonder to dry for 30 seconds. Now apply a thin coat of Hardener, cure for 2 minutes and then use the Cleaner to remove the sticky layer.
Q: I have placed my hands in the lamp for 15 minutes and the polish is still sticky!
A: As long as all the light stays on for a full two minutes, your hardener is dry. All you need to do it use the Cleaner to remove the sticky layer.
