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.
