New! builder gel vs biab

With the arrival of NEW! Hard gel colours there has been much deliberation 🤔 from our customers as to what to go for now that we are expanding our Advance Hard Gel range.
Lets take a look at Hard Gel vs BIAB and see what to go for next time for all your gel sculpting needs.


BIAB aka builder gel in a bottle

Gellifique® has two options, one to gently strengthen the nails and one for a short, sculpted extension.

  • £8.89 / £9.89 / 15 gr
  • soak off
  • 20-30 services
  • 2+ weeks
  • great for natural overlays and short extensions
  • quick application straight out of the bottle

ADVANCE Hard Builder Gel

Also available in two options; sculpting and builder gel. Today we are discussing the Builder Gel range.

  • £22.50 / 50 gr
  • file off
  • 40-60 services
  • 3 - 4 weeks
  • medium to long extensions
  • great for clients with thin, damaged, peeling nails
  • stronger nail corners compared to BIAB


Our Verdict

☆ APEX GEL. If you mainly work with gel polish clients and need an additional BIAB service due to its popularity then go for the Apex Gel Strengthen. Its easy textured formula applies in two coats. Our Apex Gel Strengthen formula is available in semi sheer and full coverage colours. For something a bit harder wearing or if you are looking to use a "bead sculpting" method then 👉🏻 Apex Gel Extend.

☆ HARD GEL. If you mainly work with sculpted nails then the hard gel option is far better wearing, more appropriate for medium to long extensions and cheaper per service. For suuuuper long and strong nails as well as for clients with severe sensitivity to heat spikes associated with traditional gel formulas Acrylic Gel is your go to.

Why select our device

It can be confusing choosing a lamp as prices for the same model range from £120 - £35. A popular expression of "not all that glitters is gold" is very applicable when considering a lamp to be used with your gel system. The Gellifique® system cures perfectly with a lamp that has the following specifications:

  • UV/LED nail lamp
  • Wavelength of 365nm x 405nm
  • 48W

However, unfortunately finding a reliable supplier for UV/LED gel lamps is becoming increasingly difficult due to Brexit and other restrictions on transportation. Thus, rest assured that our manufacturers deliver products as per their technical specifications.

Important! Please note based on your salon service time and device usage; the device may have to be replaced every 3-6 month period. Please use your professional expertise to determine when the device needs to be replaced.

Why care about HEMA?

If you keep hearing about HEMA but don't quite know what all the fuss is about then the easiest way to understand the significance of this ingredient would be to
highlight the recent regulatory changes made in 2020 by the EU Cosmetics Committee that restricted the sale of products containing HEMA and introduced compulsory warnings to be added to the label, warning the user of possible allergic reactions.

In our humble opinion the main takeaway from this topic for the consumer should be that, there are simply other Acrylates that can be used instead of HEMA that will give you the same result without compromising the health of your skin. So just as you avoid harsh chemicals in your skincare why not do the same for the health of your hands?!

HEMA FREE since 2017

Ever since Gellfique® incorporation in 2015 we carefully studied the market place and kept up with new published research relevant to the industry. We quickly spotted a number of studies and related concerns for certain substances including HEMA in nail enhancement products.

So we wondered if we could launch~ a product that would be free from many of these chemicals and yet perform at a professional level?
Luckily, we did just that launching our very first HEMA FREE range in 2017 and making a complete switch by the end of 2019.

So if you are ready to make the switch we are here to help you do that with our range of TRIAL KITS .
