Rubber Base Gel-

Let’s talk rubber base gel! So it’s thicker than regular gel polish & kind of like a hybrid of gel base, gel polish & builder gel. It’s more flexible than builder gel but still adds strength & protects and adds strength to natural nails. You don't need to use base coat & can apply as you would regular gel polish. 

Instructions-

1. Prep your nails by pushing back cuticles (I like to use cuticle remover) and gently buffing up nails  just enough to remove shine

2. Optional-apply acid free primer

3. Apply rubber base gel to the nail, including capping the free edge, and cure for 60s.

4. Apply a second layer of rubber base gel and cure for 60s. Repeat this step until you've reached your desired thickness of nail (I prefer 3 layers)

5. If necessary, wipe the entire nail with a alcohol to remove the tacky layer. (If they are smooth you can skip this step and the next and go straight to tempered gel diamond topcoat-no need to wipe off before applying)

6. File & buff nails gently and wipe with alcohol again

7.  Apply tempered gel Diamond topcoat & cure for 60 seconds

If dipping over, apply a layer of Kara's Claws Pop It Off Peel Base, let dry fully and proceed to dip!

Apply cuticle oil generously!

Builder Gel-

Soft Pink is a gorgeous pastel baby pink.  

Mauve is a rich creamy nude mauve.

Lilac is a beautiful pastel pink with a subtle lilac hue.

Peachy is a creamy light peach.

Crystal Clear is a great way to add strength and length to your nails as well as encapsulate glitters! 

Cover Neutral is such a beautiful pinky nude that you’ll want to wear all on its own!

Milky White is the perfect base for any mani & gorgeous enough to wear on its own!

Perfect

I think Kara’s Claws builder gel in a bottle is the best. The colors are gorgeous and the viscosity is perfect to wear alone, under dip powder or to encapsulate glitter.

Wish it arrived
Best I've ever used!

I got the iridescence pink and peach. So far I've only used the pink but it's an amazing formula! I've had it on for over a week now with zero lifting or chipping, which is a first for me! I also like that it's hema free so I shouldn't develop any sensitivity. I will definitely buy more.
