When rebalancing, would the BL Base coat go over the whole nail or just the regrowth area?
During a Brisa Lite Removable Sculpting Gel Rebalance apply Brisa Lite Base Coat to the entire nail.I'm assuming yes as I believe you need the BL basecoat for the smoothing or sculpting gel to adhere to. I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong x
It's viscosity is quite a bit thicker than the base and top coats, putting it in a pot gives you more control over the amount you pick up. You DO want to pick up a small bead to spread out with your brush over the entire nail- and the new Square Gel Brush helps it to apply like a DREAMhi having just seen the Jan Arnold (before i think it got deleted or moved ?!) Brisa Lite Smoothing Gel Video ... why was the Smoothing Gel put in a pot rather than a bottle ?
Of Course there is but we are going to drip feed you as we get them.Great video is there one for the sculpting gel too?
The description of the gels and their usage is post number 11 on page one of this thread. Please read the thread.Are the B/L Smoothing & B/L Sculpting both the same strength as each other.? No they are notthe same strength as each other ... or there would be no need for two different gels. :biggrin:
If B/L Sculpting is stronger than B/L Smoothing Which it is
is it ok to use B/L Sculpting for natural nail overlays for even more strength?Absolutely !
We do not remove any shine from the natural nail during PEPSo you know how we don't have to remove the shine. Well if we are extending with a clear tip using the sculpting gel then do we just leave it shiny? Thanks x

The recommended time is 30 minutes for the Brisa Lite Removable SCULPTING Gel ... obviously the thinner you make your nails the quicker it will soak off ... but I can't say how thin or thick your nails are to give you a definitive answer. You will have to test the nails as you go along and see.Thanks for the time and effort you are all putting in to answering questions on this thread. Here's mine...
If I use sculpting as a NNO how long should I give to soak off if it's just a thin covering? Will it still be the 30 mins as recommended or is that for a full extension?
Is it the same base coat for smoothing and sculpting or are they different formulations? in other words will I have to order 2 different when I run out or will one do the job?
The ingredients in a cake are butter, sugar, flour, eggs .. But depending on the amount of each the cake is completely different. Just because something shares the same ingredients does not make the formula the same.Just saw this after I posted to the other thread, I think however this is where my question is meant to be Thanks for this thread - its super informative!
I'm a little confused as to what exactly is the difference between Brisa lite base coat and shellac base coat?
I've just been through the Product sheets on CND.com and all ingredients are the same except for the last one 'CI 60730 (Ext. Violet 2)'. This, according to FDA is a color ingredient. (Im going on my training next week and I'm swotting up lol!)
Why would I then need to buy the brisa lite base coat when I could in theory use the shellac base coat?
