Decided to do something different and new . I went with an oval shape . I used nail tips to add length and instead of using regular IBD builder gel , I used IBD Intense seal. We'll see how they hold up , so far so good.
The intense seal was a lot easier to use instead of the regular builder gel and it was less messy. also I did not have to file my nails as much . I add the tips filed them until they were even with my nails , then dusted them off and polished on the intense seal . I dried my nails under the UV light for three minutes . They came out completely dry , then I buffed them with a white block , applied cuticle oil and polished them . It was so easy .
They are not as think as normal gel nails , they have more of a natural look if that is what you are looking to do. They feel pretty strong and secure. If this works I may never do regular builder gel again. My whole goal is to grow my nails and keep them protected . I am hoping that the intense seal doesn't crack or anything , we shall see. I always use the Intense seal over my regular gel manicures and have never had a problem. I had to add a flower for a spring design from my Konad nail stamp collection.
