AcryLOVE

ACRYLOVE IS THE NEW, INNOVATIVE, PROFESSIONAL NAIL SCULPTING SYSTEM FROM ALESSANDRO.

AcryLOVE poly-acrylic-gel combines the best qualities of acrylic and gel in a single product.

In terms of technique, AcryLOVE is exactly like acrylic – without the labour-intensive mixing. It is completely odourless and provides an unlimited application time until cured by UV/LED without running off the edges of the nails. After curing, AcryLOVE is ultra-light on the nails, but still harder than classic gel and more flexible than traditional acrylic. AcryLOVE has optimal adhesive properties for every nail type, is compatible with all of alessandro’s sculpting systems, and can be combined perfectly with all nail lengths and application techniques used in modern professional salons.

The Ready to Use formula makes it possible to apply the gel directly without the unpleasant odours of the mixing process. The paste-like poly-acrylic-gel is ready-to-use, offering nail stylists the perfect foundation to take their time with the process.

FAQ

What is AcryLOVE exactly?
AcryLOVE polyacrylic gel is a paste-like light curing gel substance that is handled in a similar way to acrylic but does not need to be mixed with an unpleasantly odorous liquid. The gel is already mixed in the jar and ready for use. AcryLOVE is harder than classic gels but more flexible than traditional acrylic. No acrid fumes are created, it cures almost without heat build-up (depending on the lamp and thickness of material) and is also acid-free.

What do I need to use AcryLOVE?
UV/LED lamp (recommendation White Pearl LED)
Prep&Prime + alessandro Bond Strong
ACRYLOVE polyacrylic gel in your desired colour
Spatula for taking AcryLOVE out of the jar
Brush (recommendation AcryLOVE brush 6 or 4)
Dappen dish + alessandro Cleaner
Files, buffers, shine gel

Can I also use AcryLOVE with another cleaner (other than alessandro)?
It is our experience that the best results are guaranteed when using the alessandro Cleaner. The alessandro Cleaner has an alcohol content of 97%. If you use other liquids we cannot take responsibility for the results.

Do I need a special brush to use AcryLOVE?
Theoretically you can sculpt AcryLOVE with any gel brush (as long as it has firm brush hair). However we recommend our special AcryLOVE brush size 4 or size 6. The brushes are made of specially firm natural hair that is not easily damaged by the Cleaner. Other brushes can soon become “bristly” and are then no longer suitable for use with AcryLOVE.

Who can use AcryLOVE?
Fundamentally, all nail stylists who would like a very sturdy and easy-to-use material that does not run. As AcryLOVE is not sculpted like a classic gel but is used in the same way as acrylic, it is particularly popular with fans of powder and liquid systems.

Is AcryLOVE suitable for all nail types?
Fundamentally YES - however, AcryLOVE is a substantially harder material than classic gels. If lifting occurs under very damaged and soft natural nails then we recommend the use of classic gels which attach more flexibly to the natural nail.

Was ist AcryLOVE genau?
AcryLOVE, Poly-Acryl-Gel ist eine pastöse lichthärtende Gelmasse die ähnlich wie Acryl verarbeitet wird, allerdings kein geruchsbelästigendes Liquid zum anmischen benötigt. Das Gel ist gebrauchsfertig angemischt im Tiegel. AcryLOVE ist härter als klassische Gele aber flexibler als traditionelles Acryl. Es entwickelt keine beißenden Dämpfe, härtet nahezu ohne Hitzeentwicklung aus (abhängig von der Lampe und Materialdicke) und ist säurefrei.

Is there heat build up when AcryLOVE is cured under LED / UV?
The heat build-up when curing depends on the material thickness used, the condition of the natural nails and the UV/LED lamp used. We recommend the LOW heat mode on our White Pearl lamp for heat-free curing.

Does AcryLOVE cure under all UV/LED lamps?
Yes - for the best results, however, we recommend the use of alessandro UV/LED lamps (recommendation White Pearl).

How long is the AcryLOVE curing time?
When using alessandro UV appliances we recommend a curing time of 120 seconds. When using alessandro LED appliances we recommend a curing time of 60 seconds (alternatively, 99 seconds in LOW HEAT mode with the White Pearl). Please note that if you use lamps other than alessandro products, the curing time may be longer leading to colour distortion of the material.

Is AcryLOVE colour stable?
Yes - please note the correct curing time. Please do not cure the material twice, etc., as this can lead to distortion of the material.

Does AcryLOVE need a bonding agent?
Yes - for the best results we recommend:
- Prep&Prime to remove grease from the natural nail
- alessandro Bond Strong for optimal bonding

Can AcryLOVE be removed with Soak Off Liquid (acetone)?
No - AcryLOVE can only be removed by filing.

Does AcryLOVE have a sticky residue after curing?
Yes - remove this with alessandro Cleaner.

Which file strength (grit) can I use to file AcryLOVE?
You can file AcryLOVE with every grit strength - as AcryLOVE is very easy to file, we recommend a grit strength of 150 grit or 180 grit.

Is AcryLOVE as hard as acrylic when filing?
No, quite the opposite! Thanks to its texture, AcryLOVE is very soft and easy to file.

Is AcryLOVE suitable for all techniques in the salon?
Yes:
- Strengthening the natural nail / filling
- New sculpting with tip or sculpting form
- Extreme nail shapes & lengths (e.g. stiletto nails)

Are nails with AcryLOVE thicker than with gel or acrylic?
The sculpting thickness does not depend on the material but on the amount of material used. Owing to its excellent stability, AcryLOVE can be used in the same layer thickness as normal sculpting materials - in exceptional cases, even thinner.

Can I paint colour gel over AcryLOVE?
Of course - you can apply all colour gel systems over AcryLOVE.

How is AcryLOVE sealed?
You seal a sculpting with AcryLOVE in the usual way with a shine gel of your choice, e.g. alessandro NON STICKY.

Can I combine AcryLOVE with other gels? E.g. French with colour gel or Glitter and apply AcryLOVE over it, or the other way around?
Of course! As AcryLOVE is a similar material to light curing gel, it can be combined with all classic gels.

Can I use AcryLOVE without special experience of acrylics?
Thanks to its consistency, AcryLOVE is very easy to use. It gives you enough time because initially it cures under a LED/UV lamp. Experienced gel sculptors may take some time to adjust when first using it. Give yourself a certain amount of practice time to optimally adjust to AcryLOVE. We would be delighted to support you with a 1 day workshop - you can find information at www.alessandro-academy.de.
