More Information
0.5 fl oz/15ml



Shield™ Hard Base is a hard and long lasting base with wear time up to 28 days. It allows the creation of nail extensions up to 2 mm.

The formula has a firm gel-like structure which does not crack even on long and soft nails. It holds the shape for the entire wear time.

Shield™ Hard Base has a thick consistency that does not drip and run into cuticles. It is self leveling and allows you to build a perfect nail shape with a very smooth surface. 

Shield™ Hard Base is HEMA free, it is less likely to create skin itching and redness when compared to HEMA containing base coats.

Shield™ Hard Base cures in LED, UV/LED and UV lamps.


Shield™ Hard Base can be used in a builder application technique only.

Application. Prepare the nail surface and apply a thin layer of Shield™ Hard Base. Without curing in the lamp, proceed with a thicker layer application to create a nail apex. If needed, create extensions for up to 2 mm or repair the nail. 

Cure for 30 seconds in LED or UV/LED lamp, or 90 seconds in UV lamp. Proceed with application of Shield™ color and Shield™ top coat of your choice.

Removal. File it off until complete removal. Alternatively, file off the majority of material, then soak-off in acetone remover, such as Red Lizard, until complete removal.
