About Bio


When I developed Bio Sculpture Gel I wanted a product that could be applied over natural nails, gel extensions, or artificial tips, that doesn’t chip or wear away at the free edge. I wanted all this with a shiny, flexible, hard protection that gives a neat well groomed appearance.

Bio Sculpture is the world’s ORIGINAL gel to provide permanent, chip-resistant and smudge-resistant nail colour. This unique gel is a coloured overlay applied to your natural nail, like a permanent polish. It is an advanced nail treatment that strengthens and conditions nails. The flexible coating moves with the nails, protecting them, whilst allowing them to grow without breaking. Thin, strong, and flexible with a glossy finish, the coloured gel formula dries instantly under UV and LED light and will not chip or smudge.

Founded by Elmien Scholtz in South Africa in 1988, the brand has expanded into over 25 countries and the demand for the Brand continues to soar. The proprietary Branded products are manufactured in house and research and development is a very significant factor and commitment in the Company.

This nail sensation was introduced into the Irish market in 2001 by Helen Ellison & Sinead Mydat and together they look after this top selling Brand.

Bio Sculpture has consistently led the market in innovation since its inception, bringing to the market the first colour gel, soak off gel and gel nail sculptures. Bio Sculpture is also the first company in its class to have undergone a stringent independent Clinical Research Trial and received a 5 Star safety rating.

Education and training are of the utmost importance. Before a Nail Professional can purchase any of the products they have to commit to do the Bio Sculpture Gel Training Programme. This ensures that they are fully trained, qualified and accredited according to Bio Sculpture’s International requirements, ensuring the perfect manicure or pedicure every time! The Brand also has an extensive range of retail consumer products that are available through the Professional Nail, Spa and Beauty Salon networks.

Bio Sculpture Gel’s unique formula is 100% free from Formaldehyde and Toluene, two ingredients that were commonly found in acrylic formulas and other nail gels. The absence of these two chemicals means there is no odour, no nasty fumes and no damage to your natural nail. No buffing means no dust or damage to the nail plate.

Imagine a nail gel so good for your nails that it actually nurtures the nail bed allowing the nail to grow. Imagine a nail gel so durable that it doesn’t chip, split or damage your nail. Imagine a nail gel so healthy it protects and strengthens the natural nail instead of causing harsh and sometimes irreparable damage. Imagine a nail gel that comes in over 150 fashion colours and that dries instantly … well thanks to Bio Sculpture you can have all of this in Bio Sculpture Gel. From the preparation stage right through to the removal procedure, Bio Sculpture Gel is the healthy alternative to creating beautiful nails.
