Are you wanting to dive in and get to know adhesive a bit better? Here are some tips and tricks that can make your experience with our adhesive better. This is regarding no specific adhesive but more of a general guideline to all adhesives.

-- First, you want to give your bottle of adhesive a really good shake. Begin by taking the cap off and using a small sponge to cover the tip before shaking. Then shake, shake, shake. Shake it like you mean it!

-- Next, make sure you get a new glue dot every 20-30 minutes so that you always have a fresh dot. The glue cures in the presence of hydrogen which is in the air, and you do not want your glue curing or drying before you use it. If your glue is curing before 20 minutes you may need to adjust your humidity if possible. That just means there is so much moisture in the room that the glue is curing faster.

-- If it is not possible to adjust the humidity then you may need to change your dot sooner or switch to a slower drying glue. Also, you will want to replace your glue about every 6 weeks. This will also help with your retention and keep the glue fresh.

-- Lastly, take proper steps for preparing for the initial set. Make sure the lashes are very clean and use a primer to help the glue adhere better to the natural lash.

And there you have it! We hope this helps with some of your glue troubles. If you are in need of replenishing your adhesive supply, you can order here: Adhesive
