INGLOT’s O2M Breathable Nail Enamels were a revolutionary introduction to the world of nail beauty. The nail enamels are truly breathable: they allow water and oxygen molecules to pass through the porous surface of the nail enamels to reach the nails.

The O2M Breathable Nail Enamels contain a highly advanced, special polymer which was originally used mainly in contact lenses. This advanced polymer serves many functions, such as:
It significantly increases oxygen permeability of the nail enamel;
Ensures water permeability;
Facilitates spreading of the varnish, and it
Reduces film tightness
Furthermore, the O2M Breathable Nail Enamels are scientifically proven to be air and water molecule permeable.
In a scientific study, highly experienced scientists from the International Center of Electron Microscopy for Material Science in AGH Krakow conducted an advanced surface analysis of several O2M Nail Enamels. The research they conducted proved the following:
O2M Breathable Nail Enamels do, in fact, have a porous surface. The pores differ in size and number; typically, their diameter varies from 10 to 70 micrometers.
The thinner the layer of enamel, the bigger diameter of the pores.
The pores of the nail enamels are what allow water and oxygen to reach the nails while wearing the O2M Nail Enamels.
The O2M Breathable Nail Enamels are also non-toxic!
They do NOT contain toluene, formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate (DBP) or camphor.

Use with O2M Breathable Base & Top Coat to improve application and longevity of the nail enamel. Both products also ensure air and water permeability.
- Apply one layer of the O2M Breathable Base onto the nails and allow to dry. This will ensure the shade you paint over top is opaque, true to colour, and goes on smoothly.
- Once the Base is dry, apply one to two layers of your favourite O2M shade. Your nail enamel will still be breathable with layering. Can't wait for them to dry? Add 1-2 drops of Dry & Shine to speed up the process between layers!
