Proper Prep
It's important to remember that proper nail prep is the key to long-lasting nails!

When your client's nails are cared for properly and last between fills without chipping or lifting, their natural nail stays protected and gets you that much closer to reaching those nail #goals!

It can't hurt to refresh your prep steps and make sure you are performing all of the proper preparations for best adhesion and wear. Check out LE's recommended prep for each service type here! 

Service Type
For some clients, their nail goals may be to keep their natural nails short, sporty, strong and healthy!

If a client's nail goal is to grow out their natural nails, you may consider a hard gel overlay service to provide additional strength and structure to the natural nail as they grow their nails out to longer lengths! 

The Lexy Line has been named "Best Hard Gel System" for 3 years in a row by NAILPRO Magazine's Readers' Choice Awards for good reason! 

The Lexy Line's various formulations allow you to find a gel to suit your client's nail needs whether they have weak, brittle nails or hard nails. Find a Lexy Line structure gel for your service with this helpful graph!

Remember, soaking the nails every service, can dehydrate the natural nail overtime, so if a client has weak and brittle natural nails, a fill with JimmyGel or Lexy Line can help your client achieve their natural nail goals much faster!
