1-2 Seconds - Using Best Working Conditions
Cure Time will either speed up or slow down depending on conditions. However, you can make it work for you by using a humidifier/dehumidifier to adjust Humidity Levels. We suggest you try to get to the Ideal working conditions as this is where the adhesive shines, but if you can't based on factors out of your control - review the how your cure time will be affected. Remember, the cure time should not effect your Retention levels, as the formula we created is very pure, so if you have issues, please review Checklist or Reach out to us on IG :)
1. Ethyl 2-Cyanocrylate
2. Polymethyl Methacrylate
3. Carbon Black
Unopened Bottle = 12 months (Store your adhesive in a dark, cool dry place)
Open Bottle = 3-4 Weeks (Recommended)
Don't Freeze Bottles
1. After the fresh drop, we then want to “burp” air out of our bottle. Hold the bottle vertically, with the tip up and squeeze slowly to remove air bubbles. You will see 1-3 air bubbles come out, when done, squeeze the bottle until the top is screwed on tight
2. If you are using the adhesive a lot or are sharing it between a few artists, you may experience a shorter shelf life as the more often you open and close, the faster the adhesive spoils.
3. We all want to save money, but with your adhesive, it is so important to always use fresh product. If you notice changes in viscosity (consistency) or more fumes after using the product for a few weeks, don't push it. Open a fresh bottle - your clients will love you for it and you will be able to lash faster with no retention issues.
WHITE FLAMINGO LASH INSIDER TIPS
-Shake your adhesive for 60 seconds before the first application of the day. Then shake for 30-45 seconds in-between each client
-Store your adhesive in a dark, cool dry place. Use the provided silica packet for best results.
-Cleanse natural lashes or extensions before application.
-Great for Classic and Volume Applications
-Wipe the nozzle of your adhesive after dispensing each drop
-Use lint free wipes always! (WARNING = Cyanoacrylate reacts with cotton. Avoid tissues and don't have fabrics that are fluffy nearby.)
-Do not dip your extension in adhesive until the natural lash is isolated to ensure maximum bondage.
-Use Adhesive made with high levels of Cyanoacrylate for pure bondage - like White Flamingo Lash Adhesives
-Cleanse before application to balance the PH levels of the natural lash. By removing the natural oils (sweat) you will experience a better attachment. (Our Adhesive is resistant to natural oils, but still best to do).
-Avoid Primers with high levels of alcohol as they dry out the moisture in the natural lash. This creates a brittle hair and removes a very important factor for bonding = moisture.
-To extend the life of the extensions, placement should be 0.3mm from lash line (skin). Remember every mm matters :)
-Ensure Humidity and Temperature are at the best possible working conditions
-Isolate natural lash before you dip into adhesive. We want you to work fast AND smart
-Retention: The bond will last the entire growth cycle of the lash if properly applied. Our formula works best with proper technique.
-LASH MYTH ALERT: Cleanse extensions after every application if your client has sensitivity...This will NOT compromise your retention. (Wait 2-3 minutes after the last extension is applied before you begin cleansing.)
