How to make DIY Builder Gel

Transcription:
I wanted to prep my nail and show, you guys great mix that made in Pottle Mini. Nice that I've made. And, uh, I don't mini and I was going to just like rough up the nail and everything. I'm sure you so I'm I know before you can see him Sometimes, especially when we get clients in and they say, you're going to quick manicure. We don't know if, how long they've been without a manicure. As can see now that I'm roughing up my nail.


My cuticles are on 10. You understand me? It's going to take maybe two or three, maybe even six pushes to get out this cuticle off. So now I call myself doing something crazy, which is dry push. I didn't even take all the Barbicide. I was stuck to my cuticle pusher off. Do not do that. Do you not put that stuff in the skin?

But of course, I think I'm a Bionic Woman. So. Um, And so I am trying to push, push, push, push, push, push, and just get it off.  I just want to get on with it because I.

Entrepreneur. And I got a lot of things to do. Yo so, and I've also. Push too hard. And I don't know if you can see it, but I've split my cuticles. Right. There. Right. And so I'm pushing and pushing and pushing, and I'm just like, I just want to get it off. I just want to do this for the quickly. It did not work of course, because I, I know people love Russian manicures, but I'm in love with blue cross blue shield.

I've been using it for over 24 years. And anything that can be dissolved off. I don't think it has to be drilled off. Um, like with a manicure bit, but I think a lot of people. Follow trends and fads. And of course, if that's what works for you using. And Hey do your thing, but this is how I do it, because like I said, you see I'm struggling here. I'm trying to do this, trying to be that boom on a, still have a lot of cuticle.

Well, I think that that's taken cuticle hilarious anyways. Trying to get. This is odd because I want my name to be pretty after I'm done, you know, putting my tail on his It is time for the big dogs. It is time for. Blue cross blue shield, and now they're not paying me for this. I don't even think that they know I exist anyway.

So, boom, you drop this on it, you know? And you get a big old gallon for like shine, like full bucks, right? I guess not a gallon, but it's damn near Ghana. Like depends on how many people use you don't have maybe a leader possibly. And yeah, you just go ahead and push, push push, right. And of course, I didn't even give it a lot of time to dissolve, but that's how fast it works. Um,

I know a lot of people that are newer nail techs. They really like drilling, bit I. I don't know, this frustrates me, that I. And I feel like I can just can't get everything with the drill bit and other people feel like they can. So I guess everybody has their own technique, but this is what I like to do.

Lifted up so you can actually get it off. Once again, I could look right there. That is my fault. You see how it literally is just falling off. My now, cause that right there. I don't really like to cut that I liked to cut was underneath that. That is the cuticle. Boom. I got a, you already saw me lifting that apart. That.

And of course I'm a Digger, so not done, but yes. Alright, we're moving Like you see the little gash I put. That's why I don't like to cut that part, but since I did split it, I wouldn't And I couldn't get anyone to split anymore. So anyway. Um, it seems like it's, we're ready to apply. Now, hopefully we're going to go ahead and

Again, And I was just a little bit.


Because it says, you know, I did all that before, but according I knew I was supposed to do this first. And go ahead and book them. I'm a little free, cause I don't want it to be anything to be jaggedy. You know, no jacket, nails. All right. So of course I love to wipe. I make my own and I I'm sure I have like a little stain there, but I'm going to go here. Put on a little nail tip.

I like to make my own little wipe. Of solutions, basically half acetone and half alcohol. So that's what I like to do. So that if you wanted to know why my nail isn't completely white, like when you. Wipe it would ask to tell him that's why. Cause it's half and half. So I'm placing the trip on oh so gently.

I was thinking that I want it to keep this long nail and just like making like a really beautiful log coffin. I want to pull out my panel mini block, What do you think it's beautiful, right? Um, and I already have like a little concoction, basically my concoction. And also, so don't, don't be mad, but I left like a little bit of like glitter in it.

So, but it's only just for like this, this little mix. And so my mix is basically like three parts, top coat and one part. Polygel so basically I made my own builder gel. I know, right. That's cool as hell. All right. So I went in and I wanted a really nice. Beautiful Newt. And I put in a little bit.

Of nail Polish. Here a little tuape nail Polish. Also found some old, um, and see that is pink. All right. And I'm going to go hit and makes that up. And if you're wanting to add pigment from nail Polish to gel, make sure it's a four to one. Okay. It's gotta be a lot of gel and a little nail Polish.

That's the only way you're going to need this thing without it being too crazy matter of being. Just unworkable, you know what I'm saying? So we're going to make that Because remember you're only using it for pigment. So you don't need a lot of nail Polish. Like, I really want to nail Polish You were in gel you know what I'm saying?

So we're going to go ahead and mix this I think it's nine central is Mount viscosity by how much. Uh, tap code. I put in it. So basically we had a very big apology, which I will make another video. I don't. I get, I think I failed to. Make that video when I was making, uh, my little, uh, making my build a jail dupe. Um, so I'm trying to talk that talk like the millennials. I'm just like, what is the date? And I had to do a whole millennial.

Uh, Uh, dictionary find. All right. So I'm going to go ahead and put in some more tope just to make it a little bit more brown. Like me. And when it makes it up and it's basically becoming a great taupe. So basically when I've made is a beautiful. Uh, need colored, be able. So, I guess. We can call it officially. My DIY.

Cover Gel my cover gel dupe. I got, how about that? Millennials. Yeah. I'm going to go hate. And close it out. I don't think I need any, um, uh, mixing balls cause its viscosity is pretty thin. So I'm like at that. All right. So now let's get back to this. Now I'm going to go ahead and belt with this down. Like I said, I didn't do it perfectly.

So I don't come me. Yes. I've been doing this for 24 years, but I haven't been up. Uh, constant creator route for 24 years. You know what I'm saying? So, all right, so I'm going to go ahead and bevel with this little part down, right. And avoid a mine nail plate. And bevel it down as much as I can.

Especially in that little part right there where I thought I had like some glue run over.

And yeah, I think it's, it's going to come out. As good as I do this part. And if I don't do. As far, well then, well, it will definitely show them to know. All right. So, like I said before, I was thinking that I really wanted, um, this long nail and I'm sorry. I just sat up, but you know how I feel about almond shape now?

And I was just like, Ugh. NA.

Are they going to do it out right here? I'm also trying to bevel down and shape it. I was just like, like I said, I got to a point. I was like, I really don't want to shape this super long nails. So snap, snap. Uh, here we go. We are going to cut it down because I was just like, yo, I'm just not feeling it.

I was Is my water, my barber side. Um, and then I cut some corners off because I mean, Y you know, skip corners, skip, you know, uh, pieces that you can skip. Right. If not, no, you're gonna fall it off. Anyway. I want you to go ahead and just cut it first. And then we're going to go ahead and make sure that part is leveled on the sidewalls.

Do the same thing to the other side. And we're going to start shaping our now. Exactly. I was just like, Nope, it's not quite close to the shape So I went back in and cut some more, got some more corners. Ah, look at that. Cut. Some more corners. Anyway. All right. So I am shaping my now.

I'm going to be a beautiful,

All right. So let's see. I do it. And then of course at the back behind the nail, I want it to be, you know, smooth. So, you know, So you don't scratch it to me, things, like I said, I'm putting my life to wipe. As you can see, I have like a little clue over overfill. So make sure yours is cleaner than my reminders.

The video. Yours is four.

So, and I do my first layer here. As you can see. I really, really like it. And I started to kind of pile it up in different places. Like I said, it's got the hardness of builders gel though, because it is a mixture of polygel, which is pretty hard. And top coat.

So you see how I'm going Yeah, I'm going to go float it in and try to build up a little bit of apex. Right. And certain times you're going to see me flip my nail over so I can go ahead and build my apex, but I don't want it to be super thin. Like I said, I've never been into super, super as big nails. And of course, I think thick nails also.

When it comes to your client's issue really be about their lifestyle. So she'd be talking to him about the lifestyle, If you don't, don't worry. They will come back to you with a couple of nails missing, and you'll know that lifestyle is, you know, some women stay at home. Some women have to work. Some women work out a lot. Some women don't work out at all. So women do gardening. You know what I'm saying? So you gotta know what they're doing with these nails and where they're going to end.

To really talk about the thickness that they need or the height of the apex that they need. I actually can see right now it's thin, but strongly like Right. All right. And like I said with now, when now nail technology, I think it's great. They should always be experimenting, especially knowing how much we spend at, um, at the nail supply store.

It's way too much. And we ended up with way excess way too much packaging. Way too much of every So like I have, I have some stuff from, from years ago, but you know, I don't want to throw it away because it's, I haven't cleaned it out. Like we just were thrown away, you know, basically toxic waste, but anyway,

We will get to my. Green initiative, later. But yes, this is one of the reasons why I created POTTLE is because if I want to create something, I can create in something that is Refillable and reusable. After I'm done with this, I can clean it out and use it again. All right. What do you guys think? The brown girl nude is fly, right? I know, right?

Well, anyway, you guys leave some comments below this to me, just adding some top coat. I'm in love with my new nail. And I thank you guys so much for watching my video. We're going to go ahead and open it up again so you can check out that viscosity Yeah. Yeah.

And I should've did all 10. Right. But I ain't going to wear these days. I'm I'm tied to this company. Yeah. But anyway, thanks for watching.
