IBX is the first treatment of its kind. This penetrative toughening system works inside the nail instead of sitting on top like traditional nail services.
The IBX application process is designed for ultimate penetration into the nail plate. (Apply like polish, and penetrate into the nail with heat. Blot the excess. Cure with your favorite LED light. It’s as simple as that.)
IBX is a new kind of salon service, offering professional help for weak and damaged nails. This intensive strengthening treatment works so you can build up length and durability, starting from the INSIDE OUT.
