FAQ’s About Glossify Naturabuild

Do you need to put a base under Naturabuild?

No, the gel is a base gel with a primer built in so there’s no need to use a separate base. It can straight onto the nail plate saving time and products. 

What should I wipe with after prep?

After completing your prep, you should wipe over with acetone to remove all the oils and debris from the nail plate ready for application. Avoid using prep scrubs, these contain other substances that cause the gel to disperse and not stick.

Do I need to refine Naturabuild?

It completely depends on the application. If it has been used to build layers rather than used as a base you can wipe away the tacky layer with acetone and refine it into shape. 

Does Naturabuild soak off?

Yes, you can soak off or infill Naturabuild!

Does Naturabuild need a base coat?

Naturabuild is a builder base coat. You can apply colours over the top after refinement. There is no need to add an extra base coat.

How does applying Naturabuild differ from applying regular gel?

@bysarah____: Naturabuild gel is a thicker consistency, my top tip is to warm the bottles up before use for an easier application.

@beautybychloemayboyce: Naturabuild is a longer-lasting and more hardwearing gel so the application is slightly different.

What colours do you use the most and why?

@nailsbydannimoore: Pink and nude are perfect for most skin tones but also clay and almond from the new collection are firm favourites of mine now. They go perfectly as the base for most negative space designs.

@bysarah____: I always tailor my Naturabuild shade to compliment my client’s skin tone, I find nude & pink are my most popular & versatile.

Which is the most versatile colour?

@nailsbydannimoore: Nude I think is a shade that most people can wear.

Do you think the colour options suit all skin tones?

@bysarah____: Yes there is a shade to match & compliment all skin tones beautifully 👌🏼 .

@beautybychloemayboyce: ABSOLUTELY there is a full range of colours from whites- dusty pinks- soft browns.

How many coats do you apply for Naturabuild? Would this change for each client’s needs?

@beautybychloemayboyce: I always apply two coats of Naturabuild. One thin gripping layer and one build up later with an apex.

@bysarah____: 2 for infill or base under a colour, 3 for a new application.


On average how many sets do you get out of one bottle?

@nailsbydannimoore: Actually have no idea – I’ve always got a spare bottle so I never take much notice of how many sets – maybe I should start to count!

@bysarah____: I do around 30 clients a week & I’d say I only have to do a new order once a month.. but can we request SUPERSIZE bottles please 🙏🏼 🤪🤣.
