Which Surface Is Best To Dip Your Eyelash Extension Glue

In this topic, we will discuss the surfaces you can use to put your eyelash extension glue on. I know this is an overwhelming subject. But the most important thing to remember is not the glue surface, but it's how you dip your adhesive that will have the most significant impact on your retention, always make sure to dip the lash fan or the lash in the middle of the glue drop. That is the most important thing to take away from this blog.

JADE STONE

The most popular choice is a jade stone. It keeps the surface cold, which reduces the oxidation of your glue, allowing each glue dot to last a little longer.

However, you should always cover it with something else if you don't want the glue to stay after you've used it, and the best way to fix this is to soak the jade stone in acetone for 45 minutes, which will dissolve the old adhesive.

You can cover it with microfoam tape, breathable tape, or aluminum foil. Just make sure that you always clean it.

It's not going to make a massive difference in how long it's going to last, but extra few minutes make a difference for your glue.

COLOURED AGATE STONE

It has a sleek and cool surface area that keeps your glue fresher for longer by keeping it at a lower temperature. Because adhesive stones are further away from the client's face and the lash artist's face, they produce fewer fumes and provide a safer working environment for some lash artists.

To clean the agate stone, use some acetone and cleaning wipes. Because the surface is so smooth and polished, cleaning it is much easier.

GLUE RING

A lash glue ring reduces the distance and time between dipping and adhering the extension to the natural lash. You place it on your finger and then apply the glue. The advantage is that you can work much faster because your hand is closer to the client's eyes, and it's simply more efficient.

The disadvantage of using a glue ring is that you and your client will be breathing all of the adhesive fumes.

There are ways to reduce the fumes you and your client inhale, but it'll still be better to use a different surface area that's further away from you. However, if your lash room or place has better ventilation, it will help.

DISPOSABLE GLUE TRAY

It keeps the drop from oxidizing by separating each glue dot. It also prevents adhesive from leaking and is easy to throw.

This glue tray is a must-have and fantastic because it has 30 adhesive spots and separates all glue drops. If done with one drop, you can always put it in the closet to make sure it's not releasing any more fumes, and then move on to the next, which will separate all of your glue drops, which is pretty cool. It's also going to stop the adhesive from leaking from the side.

The only drawback is that they aren't recyclable. So that is the only difference between the next option.

LASH GLUE TILE

The glue tile is a clear and reusable version of a disposable glue tray. However, it has fewer drops. There are only 6 of them, which is sufficient for most sets.

It is an excellent way to remind the lash artist that the glue drop needs to be changed every 30 minutes. It keeps your glue drop in the perfect concave form, extending the life of the adhesive and preventing it from drying too soon.

So far, we've found it handy. The best thing is that it's recyclable, and it provides the same benefits as the disposable version, but with fewer spots and the ability to reuse it, which is better for the environment.

DISPOSABLE GLUE CUP

This is the last surface, and it's a totally new innovation that's really cool. They can be applied straight to the glue ring or any other surface you're working on, but they were designed to go with the glue ring.

It reduces the time it takes to apply the lashing. You may slip your fan bases through the V edges or slit to sharpen them and make them less boxy. It's an excellent tool for generating fans, particularly for novices. It is not, however, recyclable.

 

PRO TIP: You can use aluminum foil. You can also use it on your glue ring or jade stone and cut it out in the shape that will fit your preferred surface. Once you've finished using the adhesive, remove the aluminum and throw it to extend the life of your tools.

Another advantage of using aluminum foil is that it keeps your glue fresher for longer than putting it on a plastic surface because it has a colder surface.

But it's entirely up to you what you do, and you can do this on almost any surface.
