The system uses flexible plastic clear forms that the manicurist applies gel to (away from the nail), allowing for more control. The design is then cured on the form, and then the client’s natural nail is primed. The client then has the form applied under a UV light directly to her nail, and once removed the flexible form gently comes off, leaving the completed design firmly cured to the client’s nail. The gel enhancement is then lightly filed for shape, and the client is good to go. For more information, go to the company's website.
