Episode #14

Question 1: How does the grit of abrasive affect the natural nail? Are there grits that shouldn’t be used on the natural nail and why? I’ve been told to not use any coarser than a 180 on natural nails but I don’t know if this is supported by science or myth.

Question 2: My teacher told me that if I soak the nails too long in water, this will dry them out. That doesn’t make sense to me, so I thought I would ask if this is true.

Question 3: Why do some UV gel colors fade, while others don’t?

Question 4: I’m not sure about pH or what pH balancer product do. Is it necessary to use one, along with a dehydrator with some or all nail coatings?
