Builder gel is a popular type of nail product that is used to create strong and durable nails. It is often preferred by nail technicians and enthusiasts alike to create nail extensions and overlays. But can builder gel be filled after application? In short, the answer is yes.
After some wear, it is normal for builder gel nails to show signs of growth or chipping, which may require them to be filled in. To fill builder gel nails, the first step is to prepare the nail surface by removing any old polish or gel from the nails. Once the nails are clean, the next step is to lightly buff them to remove any shine or glossy texture.
The filling process begins with applying a base coat to the nails. It is important to choose a base coat that is compatible with builder gel. After the base coat is applied, you can add the builder gel to the nails. Use a brush to gently fill in the missing areas of the nail until the surface is even and smooth.
Keep in mind that it is best to apply the builder gel in thin layers, allowing each layer to cure before applying the next. Once the builder gel is applied and cured, it is time to buff the nails until smooth and polished. Finally, apply color and a top coat to the nails to add shine and protect them from chips or cracks.
In conclusion, builder gel can be filled when needed, allowing for a longer wear time and maintenance of a beautiful and polished nail appearance. With proper application and care, builder gel nails can retain their strength and durability for a longer period of time.
