STEPS FOR APPLICATION

1. Complete thorough dry nail prep - push back cuticle from the nail plate, remove ALL non-living tissue with a sharp cuticle tool and nippers if needed. Shape the free edge into the desired shape using a 240 grit zebra file. Use that same file (not a buffer) to lightly etch the surface to remove shine. Apply a generous amount of Magpie Prep & Dehydrate liquid to a lint free wipe - scrub the nail plate, side walls and underneath the free edge thoroughly. Perfect prep is VITAL to a long-lasting manicure, if there are any specs of dust, oil or dead skin left on the nail no matter how small, the product will start to lift.

2. For the first layer just like you would base coat, apply BUILD IT thinly making sure to seal every free edge and cure for 60 seconds in your Magpie Lamp. If preferred you can switch this step to any preferred Magpie Base. There should be no product touching the cuticle area or side walls, use the Magpie Sir tool to clean up any areas if you need too.

3. Apply a THIN layer of BUILD IT but DO NOT cure. This will act as your 'slip' layer to help the next layer to be manoeuvred around the surface. Place a larger bead of builder gel onto your nail in to the apex location. Use your brush to lightly move the product in to place, make it nice and neat around the cuticle without touching the skin and then feather the remaining product down towards the free edge. Apply as many layers of BUILD IT as the natural nail requires. Weaker and longer nails will need the most structured layers applied.

4. Using Magpie Prep and Dehydrate to remove the inhibition layer. Use a new wipe for each hand. Finish file and buff to refine if needed, then apply your chosen gel colour, top coat and cuticle oil.

For best results we recommend using the Magpie Gel Lamp

WHAT IS BUILD IT?

BUILD IT is a baseless builder gel which is available in ten beautiful shades. It can be applied in 1-3 structured layers to create incredibly strong short-medium length overlays and extensions. Build It has been designed to have an effortless self level formula. Build it can be used as a thin base layer or another Magpie base coat can be applied before Build It if technicians prefer.

IS BUILD IT HEMA FREE?

YES! Build It is HEMA, IBOA, IBOMA & DI-HEMA free, Vegan Friendly & Cruelty free.

WHICH CLIENTS ARE SUITALE TO WEAR BUILD IT?

BUILD IT is a very versatile product. It will suit many. It is perfect for clients who are looking to strengthen their nails with a natural looking overlay or extensions. Clients can have Build It soaked off or infilled. Gel colours and our other art lines can be applied on top of Build It enhancements or they can simply be top coated.

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN BUILD ME UP AND BUILD IT?

Build Me Up is a harder gel system than Build It, which means it can crack and chip if it is not applied in 2-3 structured layers. Build It is slightly softer so can be applied in 1 structured layer without cracking. We recommend infilling Build Me Up however Build it is excellent for soaking off or infilling.

CAN YOU INFILL BMU USING BUILD IT?

YES you can. BUILD ME UP is slightly harder which means BUILD IT can go ontop without any issues.

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN GIVE ME STRENGTH AND BUILD IT?

Build It is thicker in consistency and stronger than Give Me Strength. Give Me Strength can be applied in single layers to add strength to natural nails or applied in structured slip layers. We recommend applying Build It in 1-3 structured slip layers. Both can be infilled or soaked off. Some clients’ natural nails are too flexible or long for a structure gel like Give Me Strength – when they put pressure on their nails this can result in pocket lifting. Therefore by using a stronger product like Build It instead of Give Me Strength for this particular clients nails, the flexibility is reduced and pocket lifting is prevented.

CAN GIVE ME STRENGTH BE INFILLED USING BUILD IT?

BUILD IT is a stronger product than GIVE ME STRENGTH so we would recommend soaking off GMS or filing it down to the base layer before applying.

DOES BUILD IT NEED A SEAPARATE BASE COAT?

BUILD IT is a baseless system. Make sure to apply the first layer as you would a base coat, nice and thin making sure to seal every free edge and cure for 60 seconds. If preferred BUILD IT can also be used alongside any Magpie Base.

WHAT IS THE CONSISTENCY LIKE?

The consistency of BUILD IT is not too thick, but not too thin that it runs into the side walls. It holds shape perfectly during application whilst self leveling effortlessly. Please check out our recent application reel by clicking here where you can hopefully see this.

IS BUILD IT GOING TO REPLACE BUILD ME UP?

We are a brand that listens to our customers. Our customers will decide if this replaces BUILD ME UP. We do encourage everyone to try BUILD IT. We think you are going to be completely OBSESSED.
