Developed in the 1970s, bio glass technology has been used in orthopedics to assist in bone fusions and regenerations. According to LCN, the brand’s new Bio Glass Gel is made up of two ingredients that can improve the structure of the natural nail plate. L-Cysteine is an amino acid and compound of keratin— the protein that is the main constituent of nails. Chitosan, a substance that comes from crustacean shells has antibacterial and antifungal properties that can help nails with micro injuries on the nails. Together, the special ingredients are designed to structurally improve your client’s nails while offering a barely-there nude coverage that camouflages blemishes. To use, apply Bio Gel Glass to prepped nails (no bonder is required) and create an extension. Cure for two minutes in a UV lamp or 30 seconds in an LED lamp. Remove the inhibition layer to reveal a matte finish. Seal the entire extension with top coat and cure. For more information, visit www.lcnusa.com.
