Builder Gel Application

Builder Gel Information

Builder gel is a thicker consistency product that is perfect for protecting your natural nails! It works great underneath dip powder and alongside with peel base. If you accidentally get builder gel on your skin during application, be sure to remove it before curing. While applying builder gel gravity is your friend! If you flip your hand palm facing up (before curing), it can help the gel to form a natural apex. To remove the builder gel, it is best to file down the product as much as possible before soaking it off.
