“Natural Cinnamon Extract is used in Cinnatize not only for the pleasant smell, but Cinnamon is known to help kill surface bacteria! What’s amazing is that Cinnatize does not leave the nail chalky white. It can be used to cleanse the natural nail before gel polish, enhancements and in conjunction with our manicure”.
“After shaping and cleaning up the cuticle area I will go in with IBX, the natural nail strengthener that I use under all gel polish which helps the natural nail grow healthy and long. What makes IBX different is that it deposits the strength inside the nail, so it strengthens from the inside out. IBX is absolutely a must to be used before and in between gel polish services to strengthen, repair and to protect the natural nail from the constant gel polish soak off”.
“ I always finish a manicure with Dadi’Oil, the nail and skin treatment oil that is 95% Certified Organic, non-greasy and penetrates deeply and quickly into the skin and nail. Dadi’Oil should be used in conjunction with your manicure, whether natural or gel and it is a must to be used at home for maintenance to keep the nails from becoming brittle without that greasy feeling”.
