Gel Extensions

Here are some essentials for your soft gel extension (such as apres) dry mani kit:

Why you need it:


Take a BITE out of your service time! The T-Rex carbide is designed for soft gel tip fills, rebalance, removal and shortening. Examples of soft gel tips are Apres Gel X and Gelip tips. Available for Right and Left handers.

Adjustable Mandrel

The sanding band got an upgrade! This mandrel fits all standard sanding bands, arbor bands and Erica's diamond Flip Cylinder. The rubber O-rings allow for cooler cutting and a true secure fit with bands of any size. Best for Right-Handed users.

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.

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.


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!

Soft Gel Tip Kit

All your soft gel tip must haves in one kit! Remove with the T-Rex bit, which has a rounded top for safe e-filling near the skin. Use the Adjustable Mandrel with Zebra Sanding Bands to prep the nail. Then use the Micro Taper for beautiful detailed dry manicuring. Finish your service with the Polisher bit! Available for Right handed users only.
