Believe it or not, there are some who just love to torture you with the cuticle clipper. They will clip and rip everything off that looks like it shouldn't be there and more.
Yes, some have even bled during their manicure. Bled!
When the mani goes from pleasant treat to painful nightmare and a week-lasting nail bed infection, you know your treatment has been left in the hands of an absolute moron!
Nail techs are like artists or photographers. Even though there are tons of them out there, there are only a handful who are good. If your nail tech doesn't have a steady hand and keeps painting over your cuticles, find another one.
If Gelish is painted over your cuticles, or even just the top coat, it will cause the gel polish to lift of the sites and thus it will come off sooner than it should. Besides that, it also looks terrible.
Have a look at some of the WELL DONE and BADLY DONE Gelish examples below and if your Gelish mani looks anything like the bad examples, you know what to do! If you are a nail tech, don't despair! All it needs is practice, patience and a steady hand.
