    Um.... Considering that your not getting rid of the residue after curing the nails with a exact technical product!?! Do your self a favour and get your nails performed professionally- there's a purpose why individuals like me spend £1000's and lots of hours training- for the reason that nail extensions are too technical for unskilled folks to do!! Should you keep placing your arms under that UV light for lengthy durations without know how, you're going to cause your self some real damage.
