BIAB Definition and Benefits

BIAB, which stands for “Builder in a Bottle” is a soak-off gel builder that acts as a base, builder gel and topcoat. It’s an acronym created by The Gel Bottle, a British-owned brand that invented the service. This trending technique is increasingly on the lips of those in the know and destined to be one of the top nail trends 2023 (especially Sheringham Nails) will give rise to – with very good reason. BIAB promises a nail-strengthening treatment, topped with anything from neutral nail designs to sparkly nail art, that's more hard-wearing yet also gentler to your natural nail than gels.

Natural nails can benefit from trying the BIAB technique over other manicures. Plus, the application and removal process is less likely to damage your nails than classic styles like acrylics, gel or dip powder. When BIAB polish is applied, it leaves a strong but flexible layer behind that keeps your natural nails protected. Whether you choose to rock a clear coat or an intricate nail design, a coat of BIAB polish can strengthen your style. But if you’re still on the fence, here are five benefits of BIAB nails:

  • It’s great for weak and damaged nails. BIAB nails strengthen your natural nails and encourage growth. If applied consistently, your natural nails will stay protected from everyday wear and tear, while getting stronger in any damaged areas over time.
  • Whether you broke a tip, need an infill or are a chronic nail biter, BIAB polish can be painted on top to mend or reshape your nails to your liking.
  • It’s a great nude shade. If you’re looking to keep things simple, BIAB polish comes in a range of modest shades that resemble your natural nails. The layer isn’t too thin (like gel) or too chunky (like dip powder or acrylic) so it puts less pressure on the nail beds.
  • It can act as a protective barrier to gel manicures. While you can wear BIAB polish on its own, you can also apply it before your next gel manicure to reduce damage to your natural nails and prolong the life of your manicure.
  • It is vegan and cruelty-free. BIAB polish is free of harsh ingredients like formaldehyde, toluene, dibutyl phthalate, formaldehyde resin and camphor. The “5-free” formula keeps natural nails nourished until your next infill.

BIAB nails can last for up to four weeks depending on the growth of your natural nails. Don’t forget to pre-book your appointment at Sheringham Nails Bar via our website which is Nails in Holt known as Nail Salon Near Sheringham.
