acrylics
uv gel enhancements rely on ingredients from the ______ family
oligomer
a short chain of monomers not long enough to be considered a polymer is a
acrylates
the ingredients used in uv gels are from a subfamily of acrylics called
methacrylates
recently developed uv gels technologies utilize chemistry from
urethane methacrylates
newer uv gel systems use chemicals called
low odor
an advantage of uv gel systems is
the uv gel application process differs from other types of nail enhancements with a uv gel procedure
each layer of product must cure or harden with exposure to uv light
squeeze tubes
uv gel products are usually packaged in opaque pots or
wattage
a measure of how much electricity a bulb consumes is
synthetic
brushes used in the application of uv gels are
60f and 85f
to improve the shelf life of nail adhesives, store them at room temperature between
the gel seal from being broken during the filing procedure
nail tips applied with a uv gel procedure should be shortened and filed prior to the gel application to prevent
the length of the nail
the time required to cure each layer of a uv gel product is determined by
inhibition layer
uv gels cure with a tacky surfaces called a
seal
the final layer of uv gel should be brushed under the free edge of the natural nail enhancement to create a
base coat gel
first uv gel is called the
leave a tiny free margin between the uv gel and the skin
to reduce client skin irritation and sensitivity when applying the base coat gel
vertical strokes
the oily shine on natural nails should be removed using
2 to 3 weeks
uv gel enhancements must be rebalanced every
medium abrasive
the abrasive used to check and refine the nail contour for uv gel nails is
sealer gel
third uv gel is called the finisher or
urethane acrylate
traditionally uv gels rely on a special type of acryate called
urethane methacrylates
traditionally uv gels use acrylate called a urethane acrylate while newer uv gels systems use
uv gel primer
are designed specifically to improve adhesion of uv gels to the natural nail plate.
180 to 240 grit
during a rebalancing use a medium abrasive file
uv gel lamps
specialized electronic deviices that power and control uv lights to cure uv gel nail enhancements
urethane acrylate or urethane methacrylate
main ingredient used to create uv gel nail enhancements.
