What is Halo PoliBuild?

Halo PoliBuild is an innovative solution that combines acrylic and hard gel to create a flawless, easy-to-use, all-in-one nail system. PoliBuild fuses the strength of acrylic with the flexibility of a gel to create a lightweight nail enhancement that offers the perfect base for Halo Gel Polish.

With no need for troublesome monomer, mixing and ratios, Halo PoliBuild Precision Gel simply combines with the Halo Liquid Control so you can manipulate the product as you wish, working as fast or as slow as you like!

Available in 6 versatile, neutral shades, PoliBuild Precision Gel is ideal for creating a natural nail overlay, to add length and strength, or for sculpting the perfect nail for your client.
