Frequently Asked Questions About BIABs

Do I need a base coat under the iridescent pink BIAB™?

No! BIAB is a buildable gel that does not need a base coat polish before you apply the builder gel. Using a base coat or primer can help create a long-lasting finish but is not needed for this builder gel.  

How do I apply BIAB?

Applying the BIAB gel is a four-step process:

  1. Prep the nails by cleaning, pushing back cuticles, filing, gently buffing, and dehydrating the nail plate
  2. Apply the first layer of the BIAB, and cure with The GelBottle Inc Light the Way Nail Lamp
  3. Apply the second layer of BIAB, and cure with the Light the Way Nail Lamp
  4. Apply TGB Extreme Shine Top Coat, Glazed Top Coat, or Matte Top Coat, and cure with the Light the Way Nail Lamp

Is the iridescent pink BIAB gel cruelty free?

Yes! Our BIAB is vegan and cruelty free. Our builder gels do not use animal byproducts or testing, and all our products are Leaping Bunny Certified. This is great to have in your salon or nail tech kit for clients who only use vegan gel polish. 

How long does the builder gel bottle last? 

The BIAB in the 20ml bottle can last for 25 to 65 sets, depending on the nail and extension length.

Can I use the BIAB on natural nails or tips?

Both! The BIAB works beautifully on overlays, tips, and natural nails. It even works to strengthen and protect your client’s nails. This is done by reinforcing the nails with the hard, durable layers of gel.

Does BIAB have HEMA?

Our NU All-in-One and Clear All-in-One BIAB contain 50% less HEMA, which means no heat spikes while maintaining the same self-leveling, super strong results as our original BIAB formula offers.

How do I remove builder gel polish?

Removing the gel polish is a five-step process:

  1. Start by cleaning the nails thoroughly
  2. Use the 120/180 grit file to remove the top coat of gel until there is no more shine
  3. Soak TGB Lint-Free Wipes in 100% acetone, and wrap nails in foil or TGB nail clips for 10 to 15 minutes
  4. Remove the foil or nail clip from one nail at a time, and scrape off the gel before starting the next nail. Use a TGB Cuticle Pusher to remove the remaining gel.
  5. Buff nails if there is any base coat left, then shape the natural nail
