Acrylic vs Builder in a Bottle


 What is BIAB?

Builder in a Bottle (BIAB GEL) is the perfect way to strengthen your own natural nails or the perfect alternative to have a break from acrylics.

  • Vegan friendly
  • Encourages natural nail strength
  • No lifting
  • No chipping
  • Lots of colours to choose from
  • Shellac can be applied on top

How long does the treatment take?

The length of this treatment depends on the length of your natural nails, how you are applying, whether you are having tips or if you’re having infills. The treatment can take up to an hour. If you’re having infills we allow 45 minutes.

Why is it better than acrylic?

The BIAB is a lot thinner when applied to the nail so it isn’t as heavy on the natural nail helping them grow longer and keeping your natural nails healthier.

Would I need to have this removed if I want a new set?

No, you wouldn’t have this removed, you would have them infilled every 2-3 weeks which helps keep the length of the nail.

Can I have colour?

Yes, you can have a colour on top of the BIAB. However, the BIAB colours are also popular to have on their own. They have a lovely range of nudes and pinks.

Is BIAB animal friendly?

BIAB is 100% animal friendly. The BIAB gel, as well as the whole ‘Gel Bottle’ range, is vegan and cruelty free.
