Adhesives should be replaced at least every 6 weeks after opening the container. In order to get the most out of your adhesive during that time period there are some things you can and should do.
Here are our Pro Tips for right lash adhesive storage:
Slow temperature changes that are not sporadic should not effect your glue much at all. So, in short, NO! You do not have to keep your glue in a refrigerator! Store it at room temperature (68-72 degrees Fahrenheit). This helps with the consistency of the adhesive.
2.Exposing glue to oxygen will break it down faster, and therefore diminish the life of the Glue also.
If you take a bite of an apple, then walk away for an hour or two- you will come back to a brown gross looking apple, right? Well, Eyelash Extension Glues are similar. Though they don't turn brown like an apple, they will break down slowly but surely and leave you with thick, clumpy glue or glue that loses it's bonding ability. So you should unscrew cap, drop the glue you need for application into a glue ring, or on a glue stone, then immediately screw cap back on tightly. Make sure it's not so tight that you can't open it... the Idea is simply to not let oxygen interact with the glue in the bottle.
3.Store your glue far away from those sunny rays!
Direct sunlight can raise the temperature which will change the composition of the adhesive. It can also change the chemical compounds in the adhesive and make it so they don’t work the way they should.
4.Store your glue in a container of rice if living in a really humid climate.
The rice absorbs moisture, so it draws the moisture away from the glue. When the adhesive is exposed to water it solidifies (the reason for using a nano mister), but you don’t want the adhesive to be exposed to water while in the bottle. If you live in a really humid climate, it’s a good idea to store the adhesive in a container of rice. Change out the rice about once a month to keep it fresh.
