PRODUCTS

BIAB and Cover Nude Builders are a range of soak off gel builders that are ideal for sculpting and tip extensions. They can also be used as base coats, as they are an all-in-one primer and base.

It’s a base coat that is flexible and bends together with the nail. Rubber Base is designed to give extra strength to flaky, brittle, thin or splitting nails.

It’s a strong top coat, ideal for encapsulating chunky glitter, building the last layer of nail extensions (for filing purpose if nails are intended to be left opaque nude), or to simply finish off gel manicures (apply a thicker layer and allow it to self-level before curing).

It’s a base coat with added primer, used for regular gel manicures, soaks off in less than 10 minutes.

It’s a ‘non-wipe’ top coat with a long lasting shine and a glass effect, designed to last 4+ weeks.

Rubber Base is designed to give extra strength to flaky and thin nails, while 2in1 Regular Base is for normal nails.

METHODS OF APPLICATION

Our gel polish is highly pigmented and you can achieve a full coverage with only one coat, but for best results we recommend two.

We only recommend acetone because it removes oil, dust and dehydrates the nail bed in preparation of base coat application. It’s best used to achieve long lasting results. Any products like ‘scrub-fresh’ or ‘prep-n-wipe’ will cause lifting.

Yes, you can. But please make sure to use our base coat before applying another brand gel polish colour.

Yes, but only over BIAB or Cover Nude Base to add bulk.

Yes, you can, by applying a thin layer on natural nails or tips.

For best results and long lasting chip-free nails, we recommend using our 72W 2in1 UV/LED lamps available here.
