BIAB nails: discover the trend

What Are BIAB Nails?

BIAB, which stands for "Builder In A Bottle," is an nail system that combines the benefits of gel polish and builder gel. It is a versatile product suitable for natural nail reinforcement. BIAB treatment is widely praised for its durability and strength, making it a popular choice for both nail technicians and clients looking for long-lasting, perfectly manicured nails. But what are the differences between the gels on the market? Which technique do you prefer to use? And get to know the Bmani! 

Difference between Builder Gel, Semi Permanent, and Acrylic

The main differences between builder gel, semi permanent, and acrylic lie in their applications and properties:

  • Semi Permanent: a gel product for strengthening and coloring natural nails, offering a glossy finish that outlasts traditional nail polish. However, extension isn't feasible with semi-permanent.
  • Builder Gel: primarily for nail extension and creating a solid foundation. Thicker than BIAB, builder gel requires multiple layers and lacks BIAB's flexibility.
  • Acrylic: acrylic nails are created by mixing a liquid and powder, causing a chemical reaction that hardens the nail. While creating strong gel nails, improper application or removal can damage natural nails, often accompanied by an unpleasant smell.

Longevity of BIAB Nails

BIAB treatment exhibits remarkable resilience, maintaining its quality for up to 4 weeks without any chipping or fading. Offering a natural look akin to semi-permanent, BIAB manicure combines the longevity and robustness of builder gel, making it an ideal choice for those aiming for a perfect appearance amid busy schedules.

Strength and Nail Extension with BIAB

BIAB nails are renowned for unparalleled strength, even on natural nails. It offers exceptional protection against splitting, breaking, or cracking. Additionally, with new innovations all-in-one gels can be suitable for nail extension.
