Which is the best adhesive?
We get asked that every day! The best adhesive is the one that matches your speed of lashing the best.
Do you find that you are waiting too long in between each application? Consider choosing a faster adhesive.
Do you find lashes pop off the same day? Your adhesive is too fast and not able to bond to the lash before it starts to dry. Consider a slower adhesive.
Matching Adhesive to Experience Level
Generally, we recommend adhesives based on your experience level as follows:
1) Extra Hold -2 second dry time - ideal for casual or new lashers
2) Mega Hold - 1-second dry time - Most popular and works for the majority of lashers for classic or volume
3) Ultra Hold - .5 second dry time - Only recommended once a lasher finds the Mega Hold is too slow. It is VERY fast.
We recently added a new kind of "Sky glue"
Sky Glue is well known worldwide among lash technicians for being the best and most reliable professional eyelash adhesive. Sky Glue S+ is designed for the professional lash technician looking for the industry's best retention, offering up to an amazing 7 weeks!
This adhesive is perfect for both classic and volume lash extensions and it has a super quick drying time of 1-2 seconds meaning that you spend less time waiting for the glue to dry and more time lashing.
Tip From Wendy Lash - Some eyelash extension glues may not have the list of ingredients included on the packaging. If you absolutely need to buy them, contact the manufacturer and ask for the full information about used chemicals. But girl, if possible, stay away from such shady providers.
The Sky Glue Ingredients
Ethyl Cyanoacrylate is the main ingredient in all professional eyelash glues, in fact it’s the basis of almost all quick drying adhesives. So when someone says “this lash glue smells suspiciously like nail glue” – well, they’re spot on because it’s made from exactly the same base ingredient!
Without going deep into the science of what this particular chemical is made up of, we can simply say that it is a quick self-hardening solution. It’s what makes the adhesive grab onto lashes and dry almost instantly.
POLY (METHYL METHACRYLATE) – (PMMA)
Simply put, Poly (Methyl Methacrylate) is the part of the adhesive that forms the long lasting, strong bond – it’s what’s responsible for your super long retention.
So when you mix Ethyl Cyanoacrylate with Poly (Methyl Methacrylate), you have the two most important aspects of a lash glue covered: the quick drying, instant bond that grabs the lashes and then the long lasting strong holding bond that gives you several weeks of retention.
Hydroquinone is only present in lash adhesives in tiny amounts, and yet it serves an important purpose – that is to prevent the glue from polymerizing (curing) inside the bottle. It’s what keeps your glue from drying/hardening, before you’ve had a chance to use it.
Carbon Black is what’s responsible for the deep black color of the adhesive. Obviously, this ingredient is only included in black adhesives and it’s not present in clear glues.
The Sky Glue ingredients list has been thoroughly checked and is confirmed to be safe to use.
