In recent years, there has been a surge of interest in the beauty industry, with a particular focus on nail art and manicures. One trend that has been taking the beauty world by storm is BIAB manicure. BIAB stands for Builder In A Bottle, and this type of manicure is known for its durability, longevity, and versatility.

BIAB manicures are ideal for those who want more than ‘just’ gel polish / shellac. BIAB clients are typically looking for a long-lasting and chip-resistant manicure that can withstand everyday wear and tear and want some extra strength added to their nails, making them less prone to breakage and damage. This type of manicure is ideal for people who lead busy lives and don’t have the time or inclination to visit the salon every other week for a new manicure.


Boost Your Nail Health with BIAB Manicure: The Builder Gel That Reinforces and Protects


Essentially, BIAB is a builder gel that can be easily removed with soaking, which not only reinforces your nails but also offers greater durability and chip-resistance than both shellac and gel polish. Additionally, BIAB offers a wide range of beautifully pigmented colours, and is both vegan and cruelty-free.

BIAB is applied directly to the natural nail. The product is then cured under a UV lamp, which makes it hard and durable. The result is a strong, natural-looking nail that can last for up to three weeks without chipping or peeling.

Many celebrities have been seen wearing BIAB manicures, including the likes of Kylie Jenner, Beyoncé, Ariana Grande, Jessica Chastain to Dua Lipa, Bella Hadid, Rita Ora and many more. We’d like to think that the fact that they choose BIAB manicures is a testament to the quality and effectiveness of this type of manicure.


BIAB Manicure: A Durable and Versatile Option for Nail Enthusiasts


There are many benefits to choosing a BIAB manicure over other types of manicures. Firstly, the durability and longevity of this type of manicure mean that you won’t have to worry about your nails chipping or peeling for up to three weeks. This is ideal for those who have busy lives and don’t have the time or inclination to visit the salon every week for a new manicure.

Secondly, BIAB manicures are great for those who want to add some extra strength to their nails. The product used in this type of manicure is designed to add extra support to the natural nail, making it less prone to breakage and damage. This is particularly useful for people who have weak or brittle nails, as it can help to improve their overall nail health.

Finally, BIAB manicures are versatile and can be customized to suit your individual style and preferences. You can choose from a wide range of colours and finishes, from glossy and metallic to matte and textured. This means that you can create a unique and personalized look that reflects your personality and sense of style.
