Healing Good: Repairing Formulas and Restorative Color

Breathable Treatment+Color by Orly

ORLY Breathable Treatment + Color is a one-step application formulated with adhesion promoters and shine additives which eliminate the need for a basecoat or a topcoat. Simply prep the nail properly and apply two coats.

The product was developed with the concept in mind that many clients want to give their nails a break, or want to repair dry, damaged and weak nails, but do not want to forgo color or shine. Coming from the idea of contact lens technology, the formula allows oxygen and hydration to pass through the polish, which allows hydration to penetrate the nail. Coupled with a blend of Argan Oil, Pro-Vitamin B5 and Vitamin C the innovative polish moisturizes, stimulates nail growth and helps to heal damaged nails.

Spring is a time for healing and new life, and the name of the game for nails this season is also rejuvenation.

Whether clients are looking to take a break from gel polish, strengthen brittle nails, moisturize dry cuticles or fill in ridges and grooves, professional brands are not only creating the color to cover imperfections, but developing formulas to repair nails before lacquer or gel goes on.
