Nail Polish Ingredients Explained

It seems that nowadays everyone is very cautious about what products they are using based o the ingredients. The more they know, the more comfortable they are with using a product. I recently came across an article in NailPro Magazine explaining what the main ingredients are in nail polishes. As a salon owner, having this knowledge will help when answering client questions about what is actually in that little bottle.

So here's a breakdown of some of the main ingredients:
  • Resin --> Nitrocellulose (that’s a film-forming resin) or anything with the words polymer, copolymer, or resin.
    • Basically this is what hold the polish together. Nail polish traditionally requires two types of resin: film-forming and adhesive. The film-forming resin gives the dried polish a shiny texture, while the adhesive polymer adds flexibility, so it is less brittle.
  • Solvent --> Ethyl acetate, butyl acetate, propyl acetate, and isopropyl acetate.
    • This ingredient is what makes the polish easy to apply and spread evenly, as well as helps the polish dry quicker.
  • Dispersants --> Stearalkonium hectorite, stearalkonium bentonite.
    • Additives that help mix pigments with the resin and solvent. This slows the process of settling and separation in the bottle.
  • UV Stabilizers -->Benzophenone, often followed by a dash and the number one.
    • This will prevent sunlight from changing the color or fading the polish.
  • Plasticizers -->Trimethyl pentanyl diisobutyrate, triphenyl phosphate, camphor, and ethyl tosylamide
    • This causes the manicures to last longer by keeping the resin flexible once it is dry.
  • Dyes and Pigments -->“CL” followed by numbers on the label; that’s the index number for the color used.
    • Makes up the color that is chosen by the client.
  • Micas --> Mica
    • This is the ingredient that adds shimmer to the polish.
The more knowledge you have about your products, the more your clients will trust you and keep coming back.

Simple Addition for a Personalized, Seasonal Manicure Experience!

There are so many ways to add little seasonal touches to your spa without feeling like you are overdoing it. You can do this by simply changing the scents of products you would normally use during your services or even retailing some seasonal scented items.

A cranberry scented cuticle oil can be added right into your everyday manicures to give your clients a fall feeling without bombarding them with pumpkin, cranberry, apple, etc. The Aromatherapy Scented Cuticle Oil - Cranberry / 2.5 oz. by Star Nail nourishes cuticles and nails with vitamin-rich blends. Its also non-greasy and very light. Your clients will love the cranberry scent.

If they aren't into cranberry, it is also available in Vanilla Berry for another option to personalize the manicure experience! These are also really great for retailing in your salon as well.

Some other great cuticle oil scents:

Another simple item that is great for seasonal retailing are candles:

Comfort Your Pedicure Clients During the Winter Months!

Nothing is more uncomfortable during the winter at the nail salon than cold feet after pedicures! With the Non-woven Pedi Cozies, you will be able to bring in more pedicure clients during this time of year when pedicure services normally would die down.

No one likes cold feet, so they pass on the pedicure when coming in for their services. These Pedi Cozies are a  perfect solution for keeping your clients feet and ankles warm during drying time and when they walk out to their car. Added warmth also allows foot creams to penetrate for softer and smother skin!

The Pedi Cozies are soft, comfortable, and disposable yet reusable and are available in White or Black.They are the perfect add on to an ultimate pedicure experience! Also, check out the Pedi Sox, which are great to use during your pedicure services, as well as retailing to your clients!

Directions: Before polish, hold the Non-Woven Pedi Cozies from the wide side stretch opening, put on like a sock and allow toes to go through the narrow side stretch opening. Repeat with other foot. Put on pedi slippers and toe separators to complete the pedicure.

Don't forget to stock up on your pedicure slippers and toe separators!
