LashJoy Pro Tip: Despite the name this adhesive is better suited to Classic lash application than Volume due to its slightly slower set times. Ideal for Lash Stylists who work in extra high temperature / humidity areas. Its thin viscosity makes it less prone to stickies so great for Lash Stylists who may not be 100% confident in peeling apart stickies yet.

LashJoy Pro Tip: Super strong bond with a very fast set time.

Adhesive Grab / Setting Times:

Grab times for all adhesives will vary depending on whether it’s being used for classic or volume application (although volume application uses less adhesive than classic application it will generally take longer to set as the adhesive needs to polymerize in-between each of the volume extensions).

What end of the effective working environment it’s being used in (i.e. higher end of the working environment = faster set times)

Freshness and amount of adhesive being used (i.e. as the adhesive on the jade stone / glue cup etc thickens during the application this can cause the adhesive to set slower due to the increased chance of more adhesive being accidentally used.

Cleanliness of the natural lashes (i.e. cleaner natural lashes will allow for a faster grab time than lashes that have natural oil build up or leftover residue from makeup or moisturisers. Read also how to correctly store your lash adhesive.
