I’ve been keeping this little bottle a secret for far to long. This has been the secret to my faster applications, and better retention.
Check out the rest of the blog to see how I test an adhesive before I launch (if I decide it’s worthy of it), how one bottle lasted me 5 MONTHS and all the beautiful details the Lyly adhesive has in store for you.
I love being an artist. A lash artist has the opportunity to create fun, beautiful lashes for clients and mannequins. If we are truly a Lash Artist, Emphasis on Artist, then how can we make our lash products inspiring and fun?!
I’m so excited!
The products we are currently in process of creating will be creative, fun and inspiring for the everyday Artist. I want you to be inspired by the products that are around you, everyday in your lash room.
Lyly (Lee•Lee) Adhesive
I have been using the Lyly adhesive for a year before launching it to the public. I used to only use BB Bond Adhesive, when my manufactures sent me a new sample to test. I was nervous to try a new glue… but I believed I could work with any glue on clients and still have my same great retention.
This glue quickly became my new FAV! It cured faster than the BB Bond, which I was currently using. Thanks to the faster drying time, The Lyly Adhesive allowed me to work faster without having many stickies.
Because I loved it, I had to share it with my sister, Chloe. This lead me to purchasing a small order to test further.
How I test:
Here’s what i found:
You need to pick up the appropriate amount of glue for your environment and skill. You need to be slow to dip and fast to apply, otherwise you will not have a strong attachment of the extension, to the natural lash, causing in poor retention results.
These photos are not edited to show the real raw retention results. Majority of these clients are volume or YY lashes at 3 weeks, unless stated.
• One bottle of 5ml glue lasted me 5 MONTHS with 20 consistent clients. Because I needed just a slightly bigger dot of glue on my extensions, I thought I would probably go through the glue faster and use the full bottle
The adhesive would expire on me before I used it all.
But neither we’re the case.
I used the 1 bottle of Lyly Adhesive for 5 months with consistency in the chemicals and retention for my clients. (Remember to always shake the bottle for 30 seconds before use).
The only reason I stopped using the bottle is because it fell over on it’s side and wasn’t completely tight. The bottle had glued shut on me.
I was mind blown! 🤯 5 MONTHS & solid RETENTION!!
I knew if this was my results that others need this for their success too.
I want you to enjoy it as much as I have!
Love the glue itself!! My retention has been beautiful.
