- IBX forms the IPN after it has penetrated the nooks and crannies in the upper layers of the nail plate with the aid of heat and penetrating oils.
- Once cured with UV or LED, the IPN is formed. The IPN then toughens the nail plate by fusing together the upper layers, providing internal toughening and protection.
- A thin coat is always applied, whether for Gel Polish protection or to grow natural nails.
- The SYSTEM will require either an LED or UV style lamp. Cure time should be based on the manufacturer’s suggested cure time for their Gel Polish coat.
