OPI Powder Perfection uses a unique technology that is different from the technology found in acrylic enhancement products, such as Absolute. Although both systems have similar polymer powders, Powder Perfection does not use a liquid monomer initiator found in acrylic systems like Absolute. Instead, a liquid resin or base coat is used for adhesion. Powder Perfection then requires an Activator to accelerate the curing of the Base Coat and powders, and initiate the reaction with the Top Coat. This makes the Powder Perfection system ideal for protective overlays on the natural nail.

Is Powder Perfection made of the same ingredients as acrylic powders?
No. Both systems use a form of polymer powders, but the primary ingredient in Powder Perfection is polyethyl methacrylate, while traditional acrylic systems contain acrylate copolymers. Powder Perfection also uses resin and activator vs. a liquid monomer.

PRO TIP: Use OPI Powder Perfection as a protective overlay service for clients with weak, flexible nails that tear easily.

The Technology Of Opi Powder Perfection:

  1. OPI Powder Perfection uses the application of a resin in the form of OPI Powder Perfection Base Coat. It is formulated with primarily short chains of a very reactive monomer, ethyl cyanoacrylate.
  2. Nails are then dipped into an OPI Powder Perfection Powder. The powder sits on top and works its way into the thin layer of OPI Powder Perfection Base Coat which is still uncured. A second coat of OPI Powder Perfection Base Coat is applied then dipped again, creating a thicker application and achieving full coverage of color.
  3. A third coat of OPI Powder Perfection Base Coat is applied, then dipped into OPI Powder Perfection Clear Color Set Powder, providing a barrier to protect the Color Powder during filing and further strengthening the overall application.
  4. Next, the OPI Powder Perfection Activator is applied, starting the polymerization, or curing process. The monomers react into polymers adhering strongly to the nail and the powder strengthening the entire system.
  5. This first application of Activator is followed by contouring and buffing the nails. This can be achieved through filing and buffing techniques, but should not require the use of e-files when properly applied. Once the nails are shaped as desired, a second coat of OPI Powder Perfection Activator is applied.
  6. After the Activator is dry (1 -2 min), two coats of OPI Powder Perfection Top Coat are applied. The Activator immediately begins to cure the Top Coat and within minutes the entire system is cured.
  7. RESULTS The results show a protective overlay for the natural nail with built-in color that provides 2+ weeks of wear. The adhesion and ease of application makes OPI Powder Perfection the ideal choice for clients who desire strength, durability and long lasting color.
