Gel in a bottle allows you to offer a nail service with all the advantages of UV Gel but with a quicker, easier to apply system that is easy to soak off for removal rather than long winded buff off removal, unlike many traditional UV Gel builder gel products. It uses a no-odour system, requiring no additional products or chemicals (sometimes referred to as a ‘pre-mixed system’), using an ultraviolet (UV) light is used to cure/set the product. This treatment allows you to overlay natural nails for added strength and can be finished natural or using gel polish colour for stunning results. Gel in a bottle nail treatments are in high-demand and this treatment proves to be an extremely profitable skill to learn.
Our ABT Accredited Virtual Academy course will teach you to perform Gel in a Bottle nail treatments with confidence, all from the convenience of your mobile with no requirement to attend the training centre. Flexible, affordable and accredited learning!
