To Seal or Not to Seal?
Now that you’ve become comfortable with applying your lashes with the Lashify system, you’ll likely want to start experimenting with different products and application methods. One of the most common questions we hear is, “What is the difference between Glass and Night Bond®?”
Here we’ll talk about the differences between these two products and the different ways they can be used!
Glass Finishing Coat
Glass is a water-resistant sealer that is included in the Lashify Control Kit. It creates a thin, translucent layer over the bond and Gossamer® lash spines, which helps to repel moisture and oil. Many users love using Glass as their finishing step in their Lashify application.
Pro Tip: Glass can also be used to spot treat any residual stickiness on the lashes. It can even be used on the Fuse Control® Wand, with or without the Wandoms® on, to help reduce sticking during the application process or while fusing.
Night Bond® Sealer
Night Bond Sealer is an optional add-on product. It is a black lacquer that can be applied along the Gossamer lash spines after they have been applied and fused to the natural lashes. Once it dries, it acts like a flexible piece of tape, creating an extra layer of pliable hold.
Pro Tip: Night Bond can also be used as a bond strengthener. A light layer of Night Bond can be used in conjunction with Whisper Light Bond™ and/or Bondage® to add strength to your bonding method.
Which one should I use?
When it comes to choosing whether to use Glass or Night Bond, it will really depend on your personal eye chemistry, your lifestyle, environment, and personal preference!
Some people love Glass, others prefer Night Bond. Some people love to use both together. In this case, Night Bond is applied first, and once it has dried, Glass is applied as the finishing coat. And then there are those that prefer to not seal their lashes at all!
When I started using Lashify, I went on a journey to test out all the products and as many combinations I could think of. Every time someone shares a new way to use a product, I continue to test it out for myself to see what happens!
For some users, like me, the method of sealing (or not sealing) the lashes can be circumstantial. For example, for most of my regular applications, I prefer to not seal at all! I get great longevity and wear without using any sealers! Because I change my sets often, I find that simple applications are all I need.
If I do choose to seal, I usually reach for Night Bond first (this is completely my personal preference). If I know I’ll be wearing a set for an extended amount of time, or if I plan on being extra-active during the week, I may use Night Bond to make sure that I have a little extra hold to get me through my activities.

Others prefer Glass to Night Bond. Those with watery eyes or oily skin or lids may find that Glass ensures that they achieve the wear they are looking for. This may also be the case for those who go swimming, live in humid climates, or tend to have sweaty workouts.
