Even though all the fuss seems to be about gel polish, the gel manicure is still as popular as ever and has faithful fans.

In this post, we show characteristics and a comparison of four transparent, builder gels from Indigo. Pick the best one for your needs and enjoy quick and pleasurable work!
Indigo Perfect Clear is the thinnest of gels which we feature today. It has a semi-thick consistency and it levels itself on a nail, making it a great gel for fill ups. It's good adhesive properties and elasticity makes it perfect products for adding strength to a natural nail. It has a UV protection which will keep the gel from getting yellow. It's an ideal product for fast work in the salon.
It cures in a LED lamp in 30 sec. and 2 minutes in a UV.
Easy Shape Builder
Transparent gel Easy Shape Builder stands out among the easy shape series (more about that in future posts). It's a product recommended for beginners because it's very easy to work with. It has a thick consistency that has self-leveling properties without spilling on the cuticles and that makes it perfect for strengthening a natural nail plate. It is liked by clients because it doesn't burn in the lamp as it has a lower temperature of polymerisation. It allows for a lengthening of the nail by 5-6 mm and it is very easy to file. Easy Shape Builder is perfect for short salon nails.
It cures in a LED lamp in 60 sec., Dual LED 30 sec., UV lamp 2 minutes.
Builder Clear is a classic thick, transparent builder gel. It levels itself just a little bit and doesn't spill on the cuticles. It's perfect for adding length to the nail both on form and tip. You can create a beautiful tunnel and give nails the perfect shape. It works great for fill ups.
It cures only in UV lamp (2 min) or Dual LED (60 sec.)
Take Your Time Builder
A crystal clear gel Take Your Time Builder is a favourite of many stylists. It's a structural gel that creates the perfect framework of the nail. It has a very thick consistency (it doesn't level itself), which allows for creating several nails at the same time without spilling on the cuticles. There is no need to rush it as it won’t change with temperature in the salon. It's the hardest gel among the four featured in today's post - unbelievably strong and resistant to breaking. It's recommended for building very long nails and creating a perfect tunnel. It's often the first choice of stylists taking part in Championships. It's often used instead of nail glue for rhinestones and other jewellery types of ornaments. It heats up a lot so it’s recommended to apply in thin coats.
It cures only in UV lamp (2 min.) or in Indigo Dual LED (30 sec)
