BUILD IT | INFO & APPLICATION STEPS

Build It is a BASELESS builder gel in a bottle system, which can be used alongside any Magpie Base if technicians prefer. It is an EASY SOAK OFF with SELF LEVEL builder gel.Build It is FREE from HEMA, IBOA & DI-HEMA VEGAN friendly and CRUELTY FREE.

Build It can be used to EXTEND using tips & forms and is suitable for NATURAL NAIL OVERLAYS too. It is CHIP & LIFT RESISTANT for 3 weeks PLUS wear, 100% GEL with 10 SHADES AVAILABLE which cures for 60 seconds.

Steps for application

1.Complete thorough dry nail prep. Push back the cuticle from the nail plate. Remove ALL non-living tissue with a sharp cuticle tool and nippers if needed. Shape the free edge into the desired shape using a 240 grit ZEBRA file. Use the same file (not a buffer) to lightly etch the surface to remove shine. Apply a generous amount of Magpie PREP AND DEHYDRATE liquid to a lint free wipe. Scrub the nail plate, side walls and underneath the free edge thoroughly. Perfect prep is VITAL to a long-lasting manicure. If there is any dust, oil or dead skin left on the nail, no matter how small, the product may start to lift.

2. For the first layer, like you would base coat. Apply BUILD IT thinly, making sure to seal every free edge and cure for 60 seconds in your Magpie Lamp. If preferred you can switch this step to any Magpie Base. There should be no product touching the cuticle area or side walls. Use the Magpie SIR TOOL, to clean up any areas if needed. Apply a THIN layer of BUILD IT, DO NOT cure. This will act as your ‘slip’ layer to help manoeuvre the next layer around the surface. Place a larger bead of builder gel onto the nail in to the apex location. Use your brush to lightly move the product in to place. Make it nice and neat around the cuticle area without touching the skin, then feather the remaining product down towards the free edge. Apply as many layers of BUILD IT as the natural nail requires. Weaker and longer nails will need more structured layers.

3. Using Magpie PREP AND DEHYDRATE to remove the inhibition layer. Use a new wipe for each hand. Finish file and buff to refine if needed. Apply your chosen gel colour, top coat and cuticle oil. For best results we recommend using the Magpie Gel Lamp.

Product FAQs and Info

PRESCRIPTIVE NAIL TREATMENTS

At Magpie, we have a wide range of base coats and overlay options to ensure there is a system suitable for everyone. We believe nail products are prescriptive. Just like skincare, it is unlikely that one product will bring out the best results for everyone.

All nail types have different needs and if necessary it is important to trial various product options on clients to know what works best for them and their natural nail type.

Here is a table to help guide you. Pinch the screen and zoom in to read and hold down the image to save to your phone.

For clients who have strong and healthy natural nails which they like to keep short, we would recommend our DREAM DUO treatment using GET A GRIP and GIVE ME STRENGTH. Depending on your clients’ natural nail length and structure, you can add on 1-3 layers of GIVE ME STRENGTH after base coat application. For any clients prone to lifting we would recommend using our CLEAR GET A GRIP bases rather than our cover shade options.

Anyone who experiences pocket lifting should avoid our softest system GIVE ME STRENGTH. With this system being softer, some nails will have too much flex and this causes pocket lifting to the stress area of the nails.

Instead we would recommend trying our PERFECT POLY ACRYGEL, BUILD IT or BMU systems. These are also a great options for any clients who have an active nail lifestyle and are prone to enhancements snapping. Please note ACRYGEL is a file off system which does not soak off, so we recommend infilling this product.

For clients who have weaker natural nails (which tend to be brittle and flat) we recommend using our structure gel, acrygel or builder gel systems.

GMS & BUILD IT are easy soak off products. Acrygel is a file off only system. Please note if BMU is applied too thinly, it is so strong that it can chip like glass (unlike BUILD IT). All of our builder gels and acrygels can be used to create overlays and extensions of any length. Our structure gel GMS can be used to create extensions of up to 3mm.

If you have any questions about our nail systems please do not hesitate to get in touch with your nearest Magpie educator or send us a message on our Instagram @magpie_education.

We have a variety of in classroom and online workshops as well as accredited masterclass to help you get the BEST from our systems. Visit the EDUCATION TAB of our website for further information and the option to CHAT WITH AN EDUCATOR via mobile or email.

Much Love…

BUILT IT™ QUESTION & ANSWERS

WHAT IS BUILD IT?

BUILD IT is a baseless builder gel which is available in ten beautiful shades. It can be applied in 1-3 structured layers to create incredibly strong short-medium length overlays and extensions. Build It has been designed to have an effortless self level formula. Build it can be used as a thin base layer or another Magpie base coat can be applied before Build It if technicians prefer.

IS BUILD IT HEMA FREE?

YES! Build It is HEMA, IBOA & DI-HEMA free, Vegan Friendly & Cruelty free.

WHICH CLIENTS ARE SUITABLE TO WEAR BUILD IT?

BUILD IT is a very versatile product. It will suit many. It is perfect for clients who are looking to strengthen their nails with a natural looking overlay or extensions. Clients can have Build It soaked off or infilled. Gel colours and our other art lines can be applied on top of Build It enhancements or they can simply be top coated.

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN BUILD ME UP AND BUILD IT?

Build Me Up is a harder gel system than Build It, which means it can crack and chip if it is not applied in 2-3 structured layers. Build It is slightly softer so can be applied in 1 structured layer without cracking. We recommend infilling Build Me Up however Build it is excellent for soaking off or infilling.

CAN YOU INFILL BMU USING BUILD IT?

YES you can. BUILD ME UP is slightly harder which means BUILD IT can go ontop without any issues.

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN GIVE ME STRENGTH AND BUILD IT?

Build It is thicker in consistency and stronger than Give Me Strength. Give Me Strength can be applied in single layers to add strength to natural nails or applied in structured slip layers. We recommend applying Build It in 1-3 structured slip layers. Both can be infilled or soaked off. Some clients’ natural nails are too flexible or long for a structure gel like Give Me Strength – when they put pressure on their nails this can result in pocket lifting. Therefore by using a stronger product like Build It instead of Give Me Strength for this particular clients nails, the flexibility is reduced and pocket lifting is prevented.

CAN GIVE ME STRENGTH BE INFILLED USING BUILT IT?

BUILD IT is a stronger product than GIVE ME STRENGTH so we would recommend soaking off GMS or filing it down to the base layer before applying.

WILL THERE BE BUILD IT TRAINING?

YES! We have a variety of NEW courses being released alongside BUILD IT.

❤︎ BUILD IT Masterclass for builder gel beginners

DOES BUILD IT SOAK OFF LIKE GIVE ME STRENGTH?
