A rubber base gel is a type of base coat for gel polish that has an enhanced elastic and flexible quality. Because these base coats have extra plasticizers added to them, they can flex readily without breaking owing to their flexibility.
The gel has a very flexible, transparent base that adheres extremely well to natural nails and eliminates the lifting problem altogether. It may be used as a base coat for any application. Rubber base gel includes only a minimal sticky layer and is not necessary to remove it.
Rubber base may be used as a basis coat for any product, even gel polish. It’s a gel of superior viscosity that helps to prevent lifting and has a pleasant fragrance.
How to apply?
Nail preparation is required. Apply a Freshener, followed by an Ultrabond primer. We’ll use Acrylic Gel as the base coat. You’ll need to apply a drop of gel to your nail and cure it using that technique.
Rubber base gel might be more comfortable to press it gently. An acrylic gel is quite soft, so you can move it around. Work with the sides and push them slowly toward the tip. We need a little more on the left side. It’s finished.
Now we dry it out. Pinch it, hold it for 5-10 seconds, then cure it once again. Repeat this process one last time. Remove any sticky residue. For that, use a Finishing wipe. You can now file it. Let’s see how many times I can fold it.
Now I unfold it back and it doesn’t crack; it is extremely flexible, but files like a normal gel.
Rubber base gel vs regular base coat
Rubber base coats are thinner and more watery than regular base coats, but they have a thicker consistency. The primary distinction between a normal base coat and a rubber base gel coat is the thickness of the consistency; rubber base coats are significantly thicker than normal base coats because you can see that it’s taking some time for it to dry on the brush. If you observe, it’s actually almost holding to the brush if you look carefully enough.
