Hard Gel Builder

Hard Gel Builder, also called builder gel, is what you will use when you want to create length, thickness or add strength to the nail. You can apply builder gel to either natural nails for a non-chip overlay, or use it with nail tips to create extensions or enhancements. 

When applied on natural nails, a strong and healthy base is required. You also need to make sure you use the right LED or UV nail lamp for the correct amount of time. 

Builder gel might not appear to be as hard as acrylic, but it is more flexible and can actually be stronger. For more natural looking nails, builder gel is often preferred over acrylic as it can be applied quickly with a high-shine finish. Gel is also great for helping clients with easily broken nails maintain their natural nail length.

How to use Hard Gel Builder?

Generally, the steps you would take to apply a builder gel would be something like this:

  1. Prepare the nail – clean, file and buff the nails. Push back and trim the cuticle. Wipe the nail with a lint-free pad using nail cleanser or acetone.
  2. Apply base coat or primer – Cure under your nail lamp. 
  3. Apply the builder gel – Use your own nail brush to pick up a small amount. Stay away from the cuticle and be sure to cover the free edge. Builder gel tends to ‘self-level’, so allow it to settle for a few seconds to make sure it is applied evenly.
  4. Cure under LED/UV lamp – 2 minutes under UV lamp and 1 minute under LED lamp.
  5. Apply a second coat – if needed, apply your second coat and cure again.
  6. Clean the nail – use a lint-free wipe and isopropyl alcohol to remove any tackiness.
  7. File the nail – perfect your client’s desired shape and even out any areas that might be too thick.
  8. Apply colour or top coat – wipe the nail clean again, and apply your top coat. If your client wants a different colour, paint on your gel polish and cure again first.
  9. Finishing touches – once all your gel is applied and properly cured, your manicure is complete! Add a touch of cuticle oil and let your client know of any aftercare advice before they leave.
