APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS
     1. ButterCream can be applied over JimmyGel, hard gel and acrylic surfaces. Make sure to apply ButterCream over a well structured, smoothly buffed and shaped enhancement using any gel brush. Make sure to keep your application extremely thin

  1. Cure for 1-minute in the LEDdot or LEDMiniDot
  2. Apply a second thin coat of ButterCream for a bolder, brighter look
  3. Finish with Super Shiny or Top Gloss for perfect shine, or Flat Matte for a fun matte look, and cure as directed

TIPS & TRICKS
KEEP IT THIN!
ButterCream is very opaque, so take advantage for elegant, thin nails. For a thinner viscosity, gently agitate the gel before applying. See the video demo below!

CAN BUTTERCREAMS BE USED FOR NAIL ART?
Yes, ButterCreams are perfect for nail art! Pro Tip: Use your BC right out of the jar for a thicker viscosity, or lightly agitate the gel with your brush to create a thinner viscosity for thin overlays. Check out these five nail art designs by talented Nail Artist @CelinaRydén using LE ButterCreams! 

 

APPLY OVER A FINISHED NAIL
ButterCreams do not add strength to the nail, it must be applied to a fully structured, finished nail for color or nail art only. Think of applying BC as thin as a single sheet of paper. Check out these ButterCream application tips from LE Educator, Ashley Biasella of @badash_nails 

 
The ButterCream color gel line also features ButterBlings, a collection of four luxurious, metallic-like color gels with extreme sparkle including Jade, Sapphire, Black Opal and Holo.

 

ButterBlings are an easy, luxury up-sell in the salon! ButterBlings are richer, bolder and brighter than other color gels on the market due to the high concentrations of expensive, luxury pigments and glitters combined with advanced LE formulations.

Why is Light Elegance HEMA Free? While many brands use it for adhesion and lowering costs, we avoid it along with HEA and IBOA to drastically lower the risk of allergies. Small molecular sized monomers like HEMA are known to penetrate the skin more easily than our state-of-the-art formulations high in premium oligomers, cause irritation and often lead to nail allergies. 

At Light Elegance, we prioritize quality and safety. We manufacture products from scratch here in Redmond, Oregon with high-quality ingredients to minimize allergic responses for industry safety. We believe, What's Inside Matters!
