It can be hard to find a nail polish that is long-lasting, good for your nails, and is cruelty-free. Bio Sculpture Canada checks all those boxes, while also have a fantastic range of colours. With a variety of shiny, glossy, matte, and even textured products, you can express yourself without compromising your values. We wore the 212 Jewelled Opulence kaleidoscope gel from the Gemini box set on New Year’s Eve and the evening was so much more magical! Weeks later, the polish just as fresh as the night it went on with no chips.

Bio Sculpture Early Years
Bio Sculpture was founded in 1988 by Elmien Scholtz. After opening her first salon, following her studies at CIDESCO Beauty Academy in Stellenbosch, South Africa, she realized that there were no products on the market which wouldn’t damage the natural nail. To the drawing board she went: her first product was the Bio Sculpture Clear Gel. This product was the first soak-off gel, which hardened under a UV light without yellowing. Until this product came to be, a product that could be applied to the nail without doing damage to the natural nail was unheard of. This was then followed up by the creation of a coloured gel in 1990, shade Pillar Box Red, which promised chip-proof colour for up to three weeks. Scholtz would go on to create many more first for the nail industry.
Bio Sculpture Takes Canada
They launched in Canada in 1997 by Peter and Nolene Nieuwenhuis, encompassing a vast range of products. These include Bio Sculpture Gel, Evo by Bio Sculpture, Nail Varnish, Natural Nail Treatments, accessories and more, all in salons across the country. Currently, there are over 230 shades from which to choose.
They never stopped innovating either. In 2016 Bio Sculpture Canada introduced the Evo Oxygenating Base. This vitamin A and E infused formula is a medical grade with oxygenating technology, while of course, being vegan.
