Extensions and Flash Curing

Exploring the significance of flash curing in the application of Esmio Gel Extensions prompts a frequently asked question: "Is the Flash Cure Lamp necessary if I already have the LED Lamp?" The affirmative response is YES.

To apply the extensions, you are required to apply a small bubble of gel on the bottom inside edge of the extension. You are then required to place the extension at the base of the nail and slowly push the extension down onto the nail. You will be able to see the Extension Gel Adhesive fill up the space between your nail and the extension. Two things to look out for in this step is to:

1. Ensure the gel is filling from the bottom to the top of your nail. If it doesn't, there is not enough gel.

2. Ensure the gel is filling up the nail and not bursting out the side edges of your nail.

3. Ensure you hold the nail in place and there are no bubbles.

This is where the flash curing process is extremely important. The flash cure lamp is specifically designed to be ergonomic during this process. As you are required to hold down the extension until is is cured into place, the light fixture is compact and narrow for 1 finger and open for both hands to fit (as seen in below image). Attempting to cure the nail in the LED lamp won't be effective, as it lacks the necessary support for holding the nail in place during the curing process (as seen in below image). After you press the extension onto your nail, do not let it go until it has cured and hardened into place, typically taking up to 60 seconds. Once all nails are attached, place your whole hand in the LED Lamp for 60 seconds.
