In recent years, the use of UV nail polish has witnessed a significant surge in popularity. In additionto bringing an aesthetic appearance like classic nail polishes, these semi-permanent varnishescapable of curing under UV radiation allow a quick application and a long hold. These two veryimportant characteristics are essential to consider to develop new formulas.
Formulators continuously innovate and reformulate nail polishes to ensure better performanceswhile respecting the users’ health and the environment.
In this context, the characterization of new UV gel nail polish is a key point, especially their film-formation capabilities. Film formation kinetics greatly impacts formulations’ stability, appearance,and properties such as speed of drying, multi-layer interactions, or the hardness of the film.
