Meet the nail revolution.

When it comes to achieving the perfect nails, the struggle is all too real — especially for those with weak, damaged, or brittle natural nails. Enter BIAB (Builder in a Bottle), the revolution in nail care that’s sweeping the beauty world off its feet. While acrylics and gel manicures have been stealing the spotlight, BIAB has quietly been revolutionizing nail care for those in the know. Initially a best-kept secret among chronic nail-biters or those with damaged nails, this treatment is slowly but surely entering the mainstream. BIAB doesn't just make your nails look good; it actively contributes to their overall health. If you're not yet acquainted with its myriad benefits, take a moment to scroll down and discover them all.

It Strengthens Weak and Damaged Nails

For nail-biters or those who have brittle, breakable nails, BIAB offers a ray of hope. Unlike the rigorous application and harsh chemicals often associated with acrylics, BIAB is a kinder, gentler alternative. This innovative formula allows you to build length gradually, offering benefits without sacrificing the integrity of your natural nails. It's a versatile solution that doesn't just camouflage the problem but actively works to protect your nails from further damage and breakage. Infused with essential nutrients and designed to harden upon application, BIAB fortifies your natural nails. 

It Reshapes and Repairs Nails

A savior for nails that have seen better days, BIAB excels at repair and reshaping. Whether you're dealing with minor nicks or major ridges, the gel seamlessly fills in imperfections, giving your nails a smoother, more even appearance. With regular manicures over a six-month period, this treatment can transform your nails from damsel-in-distress to superheroine strong.

It Acts As a Protective Barrier for Gel Manicures

If you're partial to the longevity and finish of gel manicures, BIAB adds another layer of perfection by serving as a robust undercoat. The treatment acts as a protective barrier, offering your nails the immunity they need from the harshness of regular gels. BIAB lasts for three to four weeks and can be gently soaked off without the typical nail tools, ensuring minimal trauma to the nail bed.

It's Vegan and Cruelty-Free

BIAB is not only vegan but also cruelty-free. The absence of harsh chemicals ensures your nails aren't just looking good, they're feeling good — ethically and aesthetically.
