Explore the versatility of Builder Sculpting Gel and why it is one of our top selling products! Builder Sculpting Gel is a powerful tool used in creating stunning nail looks and there are countless ways to use it.
We carry two formulations of Builder Sculpting Gel, both available in a clear and a pink shade. Builder Sculpting Gel is our original formula of Builder Sculpting Gel while Builder X Sculpting Gel is an improved formula, created to provide extra strength to nails (that is where the X comes from) and has reduced heat spikes.
Here are our 5 favourite ways to use Builder and Builder X Sculpting Gel.
1. GEL OVERLAY OVER NATURAL NAILS
Builder Sculpting Gel is perfect for creating a stronger foundation for any nail design. It provides strength to nails, while creating a strong smooth surface for a flawless colour application.
2. SCULPTED GEL NAIL EXTENSIONS WITH SCULPTING FORMS
Create any nail length and shape with the use of Builder Sculpting Gel and Sculpting Forms. This is an advanced technique that allows you to add length and shape nails without the use of artificial plastic nail tips. You are quite literally building and sculpting out nail length with gel, using the Sculpting Form as a canvas (that will be removed later).
You can also download the step-by-step written instructions here.
3. GEL NAIL EXTENSIONS WITH PLASTIC NAIL TIPS
An alternative method to create length with Builder Sculpting Gel is to use it in conjunction with artificial plastic nail tips. This technique may be quicker than gel extensions with Sculpting Form as it is more like a gel overlay on natural nails after you glue on the tips and sand & blend them down (you are not necessarily building length with the gel). Whichever sculpted gel extensions method you choose, both will allow you to achieve length and shape to give clients and yourself the look the desired look.
4. FIX A BROKEN NAIL
Fixing a broken or cracked nail with Builder Sculpting Gel is a simple and effective way to restore the look and strength of nails. The strength that Builder Sculpting Gel provides can ‘seal’ and ‘repair’ any crack in the nail. If you have broken a nail completely off, you can use Builder Sculpting Gel to create length (see point 2 and 3).
5. ENCAPSULATE CHARMS
Encapsulating charms with Builder Sculpting Gel is a fun and creative way to add dimension and personality to your nail designs. The Builder Sculpting Gel acts like an adhesive where you can place your charms and gems into and you may add another coat thin coat of Builder Sculpting Gel over the charm to encapsulate.
