At Bella, we have 5 different types of adhesives. Sometimes it can be difficult to decide which one is best for your career and one that will work for each of your clients! We are your biggest advocate; we want you to succeed! Here is everything you need to know about Bella’s line of adhesives.
Silver Sensitive: 2-3 week hold time, 5-6 second drying time, 0 fumes, latex and formaldehyde free.
Besides allergies to latex and formaldehyde, some people can also have a reaction to cyanoacrylate, which is in all adhesive. Our silver sensitive has extremely minimal cyanoacrylate in it, which is why it has a longer drying time, but helps with those sensitive clients!
Gold: 4-5 week hold time, 4-5 second drying time, minimum fumes, latex and formaldehyde free.
This is an excellent adhesive to use when first learning to do lashes. It has a long hold time, but still gives you a little bit of time to place the lash before the adhesive cures.
Volume: 6-8 week hold time, 2-3 second drying time, volume lashes, latex and formaldehyde free.
Volume is perfect to use when creating those gorgeous fans, but can also be used for classic, as well. The quicker drying time helps speed up the lashing process.
Platinum +: 6-8 week hold time, 2-3 second drying time, volume lashes, latex and formaldehyde free.
Platinum is a favorite of many! This adhesive is just a little bit stronger than the volume, and can also be used for volume or classic lashing, although it is formulated specifically for volume.
Diamond: 6-8 week retention, 2 second drying time, volume and classic lashes,.
Our newest adhesive has 40% better retention than industry standards!
Did you know you can mix and match all of our adhesives??
Because we formulated our adhesives, here in the U.S., it is safe to mix and match whichever ones you want! If you have a client who wants volume lashes, but has sensitive eyes, mix Volume and Gold. If you think the fumes are too high on the Platinum +, mix the Platinum and Volume. It’s up to you!
