Save time, product and increase your profits with the all-new ButterCream UV/LED Color Gels from Light Elegance. Here, learn five ways you can use the opaque hard gel.
This new hard gel line is more opaque than previous colors, says Jim McConnell, Light Elegance’s chemist. ButterCream gives your more vibrant and gorgeous full coverage with less effort. The viscosity and technology (created by Jim), makes it simple to apply. You only need one color coat that is about half the thickness of a sheet of paper, or else it won’t cure properly and it will cause service breakdown. Since the application does not add any thickness to the nail, simply file off to remove.
Light Elegance ButterCream is currently available in two collections: Butter Basics and Debut. Colors include: Real Red, Black Tie, Just White, Playful Pink, Silver Metallic, Gold Metallic, Butter Me Up, I Melt for You, Udder Perfection, Sweet Cream, Your Churn and Grade A.
Here’s how you apply Light Elegance ButterCream:
1. Cleanse the nail with Light Elegance Cleanser.
