Planet Iconic Gel
Planet Iconic Acrylic Gel is a true hybrid between a hard gel and acrylic, a product that truly has all of the good qualities of both acrylic and hard gels that nail techs love without any of the things they don’t like about either.

Iconic needs to be cured under an Ultra-Violet Lamp to “harden” it. The top layer of the Gel remains sticky. This sticky residue must be removed with a Nail Wipe and Finishing Wipe. When working with Planet Iconic Gel, you must ensure that the surface you work on is dust free, or else the nails could potentially lift from the dust that gets trapped between the gel and the nail. Unlike other gels it is important to press this product down, ensuring it makes complete contact with the nail ensuring you have no lifting. Acrylic users tend to love this product but unlike acrylic the Super Liquid used with Iconic is only meant to help prevent the product from sticking to the brush. If too much super liquid is used it can cause lifting.
