Liquid Builder gel application guide

  • Apply a thin layer of your chosen colour on top of your cured base coat, working from the cuticle area up to the free edge, ensuring the free edge is capped
  • Cure this layer in a 48w lamp for 60 seconds ( as LBG is a thicker product, heat spikes can occur, this is caused by a chemical reaction with the product and the UV/LED lamp, when this happens simply remove the hand from the lamp and wait to cool and then re cure)
  • Gather a medium bead of LBG at the end of the brush and work from the cuticle down to the free edge (ensuring to cap the free edge). Make sure the builder gel is flush to the cuticle area as this will prevent lifting. Ensure Zone 2 ( the middle of the natural nail) has more product as an apex would need to be built to create strength.
  • Liquid builder gel is self-levelling therefore for best results its recommended to apply the above layer on 2 nails at a time and the thumb separately, this will help to make sure all nails are as even as possible. You can also hold the hand upside down for a few seconds for this layer to level, this will remove any bumps or imperfections.
  • Cure this layer in a 48w lamp for 60 seconds ( as LBG is a thicker product, heat spikes can occur, this is caused by a chemical reaction with the product and the UV/LED lamp, when this happens simply remove the hand from the lamp and wait to cool and then re cure)
  • Depending on the desired strength you can then apply another thin layer of LBG but this is optional, if needed please refer to above steps.
  • Using a lint-free pad and gel residue wipes off solution you can remove the sticky layer from the liquid builder gel (you can alternatively use pure acetone to remove this).
  • Using premier gel buffing block you can gently buff over any imperfections in the application.
  • Remove any dust build up
  • At this stage, you will be ready for a colour application or go straight over with one of our top coats.
