What is ProForm™?
ProForm™ is The GelBottle Inc’s brand-new HEMA-free polygel formula. It provides you the strength of acrylic with the easy usability as a gel.
What does HEMA-free mean?
HEMA stands for hydroxyethyl methacrylate, which is typically used in gel polish and can sometimes cause skin irritation if absorbed into the skin. The new HEMA-free formula of The GelBottle ProForm, Glow Top, and Bond Base is 100% free of hydroxyethyl methacrylate, so it should help lessen any skin irritation in clients.
What is the difference between polygel, acrylic, and builder gel?
Each type has a unique formula and functionality. Acrylic products are typically in a powder form and are not cured with a UV or LED nail lamp but instead are cured when it interacts with air. A builder gel, also known as a builder in a bottle, is a gel polish that usually acts as a base layer to strengthen the natural nail but has some flexibility depending on the builder gel. Polygel is a hybrid between acrylic and hard gel. The TGB polygel, ProForm, gives you the strength of acrylic but is cured with a UV/LED lamp like gel polish needs to be.
How long do polygel nails last?
We cannot speak for all polygel formulas, but the TGB ProForm polygel gives clients up to three to four weeks of wear. Each tube of ProForm lets you create about 30 sets of nails, depending on the length of each set.
Are polygel nails safe?
With TGB’s HEMA-free polygel formula, it is safe! If you have clients with sensitive skin that can react with gel polishes, TGB ProForm polygel could be a great option for them.
How do I take off polygel?
To start removing TGB polygel, use an e-file or a 120/180 grit file to reduce the length of the extension. Once the length has been removed, begin debulking down to the thin layer of the base coat, then soak the nails in acetone for five to 10 minutes.
