Kokoist educator Iori Iwaza lets gravity do the work for her when sculpting gel nails. After applying Kokoist Excel Builder Gel, she turns the client’s hand palm up, allowing the gel to naturally collect at the apex of the nail. Then she turns the hand again, lets the gel self-level for a smooth surface, and cures. “With this technique, I don’t have to file before color application. It saves me time and product,” Iwaza explains. “I love that I don’t have to deal with the dust from filing, which could be quite annoying at times when it’s not removed thoroughly.”
