Why doesn’t my semi-permanent varnish last?

There’s nothing more annoying than semi-permanent varnish peeling off. Why? What causes it? Don’t panic, the nail expert Maryton will tell you answers. Just keep reading!

Semi-permanent varnish peeling can have several reasons:

the preparation of the nail is not done correctly

  • The varnish sticks to the cuticles therefore when the nail grows they come off the nail.
  • The nail plate has not been scratched.
  • Dust is present.
  • The nail fat has not been degreased.

The free edge of the nail is not edged

By catalyzing the semi-permanent varnish has a tendency to retract slightly, if the nail is not well edged, that is to say if the varnish is not applied correctly to the end of the nail then there may be peeling off. So be sure to edge the free edge of the nail.

Conclusion to prevent the varnish from peeling off, here are the points to check:

  • Prepare your nails properly: clean and degrease.
  • Apply thin layers.
  • Do not apply nail polish to cuticles.
  • Border the nail.
  • Ensure that the layer is well catalyzed before applying the next one.
  • Check the catalyzation time of your varnish.
