    A must-have!

    My nails have gotten a wee bit thin from over-filing during the early days of not knowing how to buff and use builder gel effectively. A week of using this and my nails were a lot stronger and I felt more confident with using less builder for my next manicure. Now, my manicures are a lot less bulky!

    I use this between gel sets to give my nails a chance to rest and get strong before my next set of gels.
