Why is my semi-permanent nail polish peeling off?

Several reasons can be at the origin of the detachment of your semi-permanent nail polish.  Today, the nail supply expert Maryton will explain everything to you. Just keep reading!

The number one reason your nail polish may be chipping is that you haven’t completely and properly pushed back the cuticle. The almost invisible thin layers of cuticle skin that may remain on the nail plate absorb a lot of water. This means that any bits of cuticle left under the nail polish will absorb water and expand, causing the polish to lift or peel.

The second reason your nails can chip is if you don’t file the free edge. The reason for this is that oils can accumulate on the free edge of the nail. It is therefore necessary to file and clean the edges before starting your manicure with semi-permanent varnish.

The third reason your semi-permanent nail polish may be chipping is that you’ve applied the coats too thickly. When you cure nail polish to semi-permanent polish, only the top layer absorbs all the light. This means that if the layer is too thick, the lower layers will remain soft, which can also lead to peeling.
