How To Build Short Nail Extensions

Step 1. Prep the nails the same way as the gel polish application process.

Step 2. Apply Nail Forms

Step 3. Apply a layer of Base Coat and cure.

Step 4. Apply a layer of Builder In A Bottle at the free edge of the nail to your desired length and cure. ( We recommend no more than 6mm )

Step 5. Apply a layer of Builder In A Bottle over the nail plate blending into the extension and cure.

Step 6. Apply a small amount of Builder In A Bottle to create an apex and cure.

Step 7. Apply another layer of Builder In A Bottle over the entire nail to create your desired thickness and cure.

Step 8. Remove the nail forms and wipe over the nail with isopropyl alcohol to remove the tacky dispersion layer.

Step 9. File and shape the nails.

Step 10. Paint your nails with favourite Gel Polish colour, and follow with top coat.



Cure time for Builder In A Bottle is 1 minute in a 48 watt LED lamp/light.  2 minutes in a UV lamp/light.

D&G HEMA Free Builder In A Bottle will produce a tacky dispersion layer once cured.  You will need to wipe over this layer with Isopropyl Alcohol to remove it. 

This B.I.A.B is a soak off formula, approximately 5-6mins.

TIP: Cleanse the tacky dispersion layer before applying No Wipe Top Coat and before filing and buffing.
