Putty Conversion

What is it?

The special polygel formula acts as a 2-in-1 system that combines the technology of both the gel and liquid & powder systems and is far easier to apply and learn than either of the traditional systems!

With polygel, you have the latest technology available, and you won’t want to use anything else. Making the switch to this system will eliminate the need for “old fashioned” gels and acrylics in your salon.

You can build on to the knowledge taught in this course by attending one of our Conversion Courses.

What you’ll learn:

Product knowledge | Overlay on tips and natural nails | Sculpted nails (extend without tips!) | Rebalance techniques | Removal | Advanced nail art techniques

What’s In the Basix Kit:

1 x 14ml pH Prep | 1 x 60g Putty Translucent OR Blush Pink | 1 x 120ml Shaping Liquid |1 x Colour Gloss Bonding Gel | 1 x Artistic Putty Pro Tool (2-in 1) | 1 x 15ml No Cleanse Top Coat | 1 x 100/180 file wide | 1 x 100/180 buffer

This is enough product for about 100 individual services!

How much does it cost?

Basix kit: N$ 3,000 | Full kit: N$7,500 (see Beginners for kit contents)

How long does it take?

The course is comprised of two separate elements, combining both self-learning and in-class training:

  • Classes take 1 half day to complete with an educator. We show you how to work with products safely and correctly, and you will work on practice hands, nail pops and live models.
  • Homework – we send you the class notes about a week ahead of the scheduled class date so that you can have a little background about what we’ll go over on the day. This allows us to spend more time with you on the hands on elements. You are encouraged to submit case studies to your educator for additional feedback and advice afterwards to help you adjust to the new product and system.

This course is not suitable for beginners.
Proof of training and full payment in advance is required to register.
