The best bits for

Structured Gel

Here are some essentials for your structured gel dry mani kit:

Why you need it:

Saftey Smooth Top Barrel

This carbide bit is used for fast cutting, shaping, reducing length, and removing product. The rounded smooth top allows you to file close to the cuticle with confidence (great for newbies!). For structured gel, Medium grit is best. Great for Left & Right handers!

Gel X

This carbide bit is one of the most popular for product removal! The cutting flutes are designed to scoop away product quickly so you can get to application in no time. Right-handed use only.

Micro Taper

This versatile diamond bit has a thin and tapered point perfect for basic or detailed cuticle work. The diamond particles safely exfoliate skin and cuticle around the nail fold and on the nail plate. We recommend Medium or Fine grit.

Small Tapered Barrel

This diamond bit has SO many uses: to exfoliate thick cuticle off of the nail plate, smooth out applied product near the cuticle, or remove that sneaky bit of gel color tucked close to the side wall that you couldn't reach with your carbide. We recommend Medium grit for these uses.

Russian Flame

This diamond bit is one of Erica's most popular high-end dry manicuring tools. Use it to open and clean the cuticle pocket, allowing you to tuck the color further back on to nail. It's small size helps to remove excess debris and skin off the nail plate, too!

Uh-Oh Bit

An absolute must-have! Don't you hate cured product in the side walls? Now you can swiftly fix your masterpiece with the Uh-Oh Bit! This little carbide is the perfect size for removing product in unwanted places.


This is a client favorite! Use with lunu-luxe cuticle oil on the skin around the nail to smooth and rehydrate the cuticles! Do this as the very last step of the service after product application in order to reduce hangnails and promote a long-lasting manicure!
