The Romantic Gothic Collection

Bio Sculpture is proud to introduce our latest colours launch, the Romantic Gothic Collection.

Autumn/Winter 2016 will bring a touch of romanticism this season, inspired by the spirit of the rose. A flower begins its life as a tight bud that opens into a lush bloom, eventually collapsing back into itself. The colours from the Romantic Gothic Collection are inspired by this cycle of birth, beauty and growth.

Health Focus – Cuticle Care


Cuticles, cuticles, cuticles!

Often mistreated, the cuticles play an important part in nail health – acting as a protective barrier for the fast growing soft keratin that eventually becomes your nails.

If neglected, your cuticles may become damaged, dry or harden, and allow microscopic dust and organisms to penetrate the area under the cuticle. This may not only cause discomfort and pain, but may lead to an infection that impacts on the overall health of your nail, and can leave them feeling soft, discoloured or misshaped.

Below are some helpful tips to keep your cuticles healthy, and your nails strong and beautiful!

1) Keep ’em strong!

Like your skin, your cuticles need regular moisturising to maintain their health and structure. By regularly applying Nail Treatments like Bio Sculpture’s Cuticle Oil or Nail & Cuticle Conditioner, your cuticles will be enriched with nourishing jojoba, ginseng and almond oils keeping them healthy, strong and flexible.

TIP: Be sure to check the ingredients of your Nail Treatments – some nail hardeners and cuticle conditioners may contain toluene sulphonamide or formaldehyde which are irritants and can further damage the skin. Bio Sculpture products are 5 FREE, meaning they do not contain toluene sulphonamide and formaldehyde, as well as toluene, dibutyl phthalate (DBP) and formaldehyde.

Healthy Treatments = Healthy Nails

2) Leave it to the professionals

Tempted to bite, cut, pick, trim or clip those unruly cuticles? Think again. Cutting or trimming cuticles at home increases the risk of breaking that protective barrier, and allowing germs to enter and infect the cuticle or nail area. It is crucial that you go to a well trained Nail Technician, who understands how to provide a safe and healthy manicure service without damaging the cuticle.

All Bio Sculpture Nail Technicians have undergone training to ensure your nails and cuticles are professionally treated and cared for.

3) If you suspect that you have a cuticle infection, GO TO THE DOCTOR!

Doctors can easily treat cuticle infections with a range of antibacterial and anti-fungal treatments. Avoid getting gel or polish manicures or pedicures until your infection has gone, or you have received the all clear from the Doc.

FACT: An infection in the cuticle is called paronychia, and an infection in the nail plate is called onychomycosis

4) When it comes to your overall nail health – NEVER ACCEPT ANYTHING LESS THAN 5 STAR!

Bio Sculpture® Gel is the only clinically proven, 5-STAR SAFETY RATED nail system on the market today. Bio Sculpture Therapists have been trained to provide world-class nail care service that can shape, lengthen and condition of your nails without causing any damage to the natural nail!

What Colour Suits Your Complexion?

Compliment your complextion

2015 has arrived and this year we celebrate the kaleidoscope of skin colour all around the globe. Bio Sculpture® wants to encourage you to take care of your unique skin type. Love your natural tone, flaunt those freckles or beauty spots and embrace your peerless colour complexion by complimenting it with NAIL COLOUR.

Colour Skin Tone 1

There are no rules when it comes to colour although certain colours compliment certain complexions better than others. 

Determining what side of the colour wheel will embellish your complexion:

Some complexions suit just about any colour. For the rest of us, some people’s skin has a gold/yellow undertone, while others have a blue/pink undertone. Analyse your wrist. If the veins appear blueish, you have a ‘cool/ocean’ complexion. If they appear greenish, you have a ‘warm/earth’ complexion. This specific undertone will help determine the colours you wear best. Another way to analyse, is to drape a red-orange scarf around your neck. Analyse your face. Then drape a red-violet scarf and compare the two. Some people suit both, but most will definitely fall either in the ‘cool/ocean’- or ‘warm/earth’ complexion category. The same test can be done by using a yellow-green and blue-green scarf.

Understanding Colour - Spectrum

Skin tone tips:

Fair/Pale skin tones

Stick to darker colours that contrast the skin – whites and pale colours might appear washed out.

Olive/Medium skin tones

Go either light, or dark. Be careful of brown, yellow or green undertones. It could make the skin appear yellow.

Darker skin tones

Pretty much any colour goes! Be careful of going too bright, too white or too dark/black.

Skin Tone 2

As all skin tones differ, use these tips as guidelines but never stop experimenting with COLOUR!

Longer Lasting Nails

Bio Sculpture recently tested the durability of Bio Sculpture Gel and a popular hybrid gel polish to highlight the benefits of choosing Bio Sculpture Gel. Here are the results:

"Bio Sculpture Gel Vs Gel Polish

Bio Sculpture after 2 weeks

Bio Sculpture Gel still looked immaculate after 3 weeks while the hybrid gel polish had chipped and peeled, needing to be removed after just 2 weeks. Bio Sculpture Gel is a pure gel product that lasts longer than hybrid gels, and offers a damage-free, long lasting nail gel experience.
