Get the natural look and flexibility of a gel with the strength and control of an acrylic with Cuccio’s T3 LED/ UV Cool Cure Sculpting Gel. The formula is odor-free and is ideal for nail techs who have transitioned out of acrylics and into gels, but have been limited by extensions.
“A lot of techs stopped doing acrylics when soak-offs became popular,” says Elaine Watson, vice president of sales and marketing and global educator for Cuccio. “The smell, the dust, and the time invested were all things we didn’t miss. But we found that working with soak-off gels didn’t offer the same result as acrylics because they are thin and too delicate to extend. Our T3 gel gives techs the options to use gels as they would acrylics.”
T3 is available in two viscosities. The thicker formula allows for controlled leveling and is so thick it gives total control to the tech — it won’t self-level or move unless the tech moves it. The thinner formula does self-level but both formulas don’t harden until cured. The formula bonds to the nail and creates acrylic-like strength and adhesion when sculpted or used with a tip overlay. It also won’t curl at the free edge as it grows out. The product is offered in four colors including white, transparent pink, opaque petal pink, and clear.
