Builder Gel Instructions

How to apply Adrada Builder Gel:

1.  Push back your cuticles, prep and cleanse your nails.

2.  Apply one of our Nail Prep #1 liquids.

3.  Apply our Base Coat UV/LED Gel avoiding touching your skin and cure for 60s under LED lamp or 120s under UV lamp.

4.  Using the gel brush, grab a small bead of Builder Gel and place it on the middle of your nail bed. Gently, start pushing the gel around the nail avoiding touching your skin. Using a circular motion, start building your nail to your desired thickness. Cure for 1 minute under LED lamp or 3 minutes under UV lamp. Curing time varies depending on lamp power.

Note: If you apply a really thick layer of builder gel, be aware that when it is curing under the lamp, the gel will get hot and you may feel a burning sensation.  It's better to do 2 thin layers instead of one thick layer.

5. Wipe nails with alcohol.

6.  File and shape nails leaving a little bit of a rough surface for the next step.

7.  Apply our No Wipe Top UV/LED gel for a shiny clean look making sure you cap the free edge. If you want a matte finish, you can use our No Wipe Matte UV/LED Gel instead.

8.  Apply one of our amazing cuticle oils.
