  • Cure for 1 minute under LED lamp or 3 minutes under UV lamp. Keep capped when not in use. Do not store in sunlight.
  • Cure time: LED 1 minute, UV 3-4 minutes
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing So easy to work with. Only negative is that it doesn't soak off but otherwise perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I bought this a few weeks ago and am very impressed with the results. Products works well with glitter mix-ins & is self leveling. Had ample time to work with & cures well. Only con I have is the sticky residue but no biggie. It wips off with alcohol. This has boosted my glamour nail clientele quite a bit since its quick & easy. Great for beginners.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Builder Gel Positive feedback I really prefer using this builder gel compared to using acrylic nail product. It doesn't have the odor the acrylic products have and I feel like it just as strong.

I purchased this product along with the Gelish Mini LED Light. I applied a thin layer, then I placed it under the light for about 3 min to cure, but it was still soft. Is anyone having that same issue or am I doing something wrong?

Asked by: Tonya HT
I don’t think you’re doing anything wrong. You have to make sure to wipe it wth cleanser or alcohol to get that sticky layer off or you’ll never think they’re done. I use a LED light ($7) and I only have to cure my nails for 1 minute and then I wipe the top layer and they’re done

is this used to make nail extensions?

Asked by: jmc99797
It can be if you use a tip or a nail form; however, this product is NOT a soak-off gel, you have to file it off which you might want to keep in mind.

I prep nails/cuticles,hand file-buff, apply 1 coat soak off gel base, 2 coats color, 1 coat top coat and cure in LED. But to shape surface and sides for more professional, smooth look and remove ridges..would builder gel before applying color help? Or?

Asked by: Susan1899
Hi Susan! I do my own gel nails and I use an Acevivi professional nail file drill to shape the nails after applying the builder gel. After I add the new builder gel, shape with the drill (dremel-like) tool then shape with a nail file, then my nails are ready for color and top coat. Hope that helps!

Could this be used like a top coat over pink and white for extended shine and non-yellowing?

Asked by: Visnail1
If you are talking about pink and white Builder Gel then Yes you can.  If you are talking about Nail Polish, I wouldn’t recommend this for a Top Coat because you have to File this product off. I hope this helps you!

Sonetimes you can get luckys and they'll have one or two left however i find it much easier to just order it online. Not only are you guaranteed to get it but also you can guarantee the color you want.

Should I still use a base coat after primer? Or should I just use builder gel right after primer?

Asked by: Anna_g89
Its Ibd dehydrater, then bonder cure per directions blot off any excess bonder use a thin coat or clear gel for first layer or very thin layer of builder gel cure than continue each layer keep layers on the thin side this prevent heat reaction and cures better with thin layers. Keep gel off the cuticles wipe with clean brush or orange wood stick. Good luck hope this helps
