A game changer!

As someone pretty new to all this mani fun, I was super intimidated to use builder gel bc of how many biffs I tend to have in just the dip part. BUT Kara’s gel is so easy to use and really beautiful even by itself! And it hasn’t budged! If I can do it, you can do it!

So thick and smooth

Kara’s builder gel is extremely thick but goes on super smooth. I put it on a week ago and it will not budge!! The mauve color is very pretty! I am excited to try a dip overtop!

After using Kara’s dips for a long time now, I decided to try out this builder gel. LOVE IT. It does not budge. I work in healthcare and am hard on my hands and this stuff is indestructible. I’ve been wearing it by itself for about a week and am just getting ready to fill and dip over it. So impressed!

Beautiful colors but not for me

I wanted to use these to apply my full coverage nails instead of my Aimeili GB. But the nails would not stay in place with this BG.

Love it!!

I recently ordered the mauve and the lilac builder gel. Love them! Goes on smooth and is easy to buff. Could wear on its own in any season!
