Inglot O2M Breathable Nail Polish is one of the greatest innovation yet.

Almost all women apply nail polish to spruce up their overall appearance. Nail polishes are also considered as a great accessories, categorized along the likes of handbags and jewelries. Painting the nails or manicures is an essential part of grooming process. For some, applying nail polish is considered a way to express themselves.

However, what most of us do not consider is the after effect of using strong nail polishes. Admit it, we are all guilty of layering polishes week by week (some even daily, gasp!) and this results yellowish or even brittle nails. For your information, most nail polishes contain bad chemicals such as; toulene– a chemical known to cause reproductive harm and dizziness, formaldehyd, and dibutyl phthalate (DBP) — this chemical is known to cause reproductive problems and is banned in England.

This is extremely dangerous in the long term, as we frequently use our hands on the daily. What’s worse, we handle food using our hands! Imagine our health under this toxicity.

Luckily for us, Inglot came up with a breathable nail polish line — but what is so special about this innovation? What does breathable means? And how does this nail polish different from the rest?

Inglot O2M Breathable Nail Polish is an excellent nail enamel that allows water and oxygen to pass through thanks to its special ingredient – a highly advanced polymer. The product helps keep the nails in the best condition while wearing nail enamel. Use with O2M Breathable Base to improve application of the nail enamel. To prolong life of the nail enamel, cover with a layer of O2M Breathable Top Coat. Both products also ensure air and water permeability.

And the highlight of this innovation?

It does NOT contain toluene, formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate (DBP) or camphor.

Most Muslim women also rejoice with the introduction of Inglot O2M Breathable Nail Polish. Some say this nail polish is deemed halal for praying, some are still unsure. However you think of them, ladies — our nails would always be healthy, that’s what is more important.


Now, I thought it would be great to include a mini nail polish tutorial in this post.

I noticed that for those of us who enjoy manicure sessions — we are kind of hopeless when it comes to doing our own nails. Taking care of your nails are as much as important grooming anywhere else. Why not learn a few tips to manage your own nails and have the manicure session occasionally?

You get to save money AND you get to learn a new skill!

Manicure Preparation

Alright, alright, alright.

First things, first — get your work area ready.

Keep your manicure tools and nail polish of choice at hand. For this mini tutorial, I will be using Inglot O2M Breathable Nail Polish Soft Matte in the color ‘503’, a blush color. This type of nail polish O2M Breathable Nail Enamel SOFT MATTE is a new formula of air and water permeable nail enamel. This means that the polish provides perfect coverage and a subtle matte finish. It also comes with a new flat brush was carefully picked for this formula to provide quick, easy and even coverage.

To avoid mess and to prevent the nail enamel from staining anywhere, please spread a towel on the surface or your work area.


 Remove the Old Nail Polish

In case you have any marks of the old enamel on your nails, remove them with the help of a nail polish remover. This step is just to ensure that you have a clean slate to start with and also to avoid layering, which can result to chipping. This was also done to make sure that when applying the new polish, it would spread evenly and give you a smooth appearance.

Therefore, please — make sure your nails are free from any enamel!


Wash Your Hands

To keep all the debris and dirt in getting into your nails, wash your hands properly. It is recommended to use a hand soap!


Rub the Bottle

It was suggested to rub the bottle of the polish in between your hands for some time, say about 20-30 seconds. This was to keep the bubbles away which might have formed inside the bottle. If you find rubbing a small bottle of enamel is weird, you can just shake it like a normal person would.

The Base Coat

For this tutorial, we’re skipping this one. However, if you’re quite fussy, you can continue this step. First, apply the base coat. Afterwards, start painting from the nail bed towards the sides. Don’t worry if you stain your skin, the base coat is colorless, and it won’t come in notice. After applying it, let it dry before you resuming the work.

Start with the Color Coat

Start applying the color coat, starting from the middle towards the sides of the nail. Afterwards, let the coat dry.

Add Another Layer

In case you want more of an opaque shade, apply the coat once again. Otherwise, if you’re good with your color coat you can skip this step. If needed, apply a coat of the colorless top coat on your nails. This will protect the nails from chipping and make your nail polish last longer. Let it dry for 5-7 minutes.

Get It Clean

When the top coat was dried, get a pointed cotton bud. Dip it into your nail polish remover and remove all the excess nail enamel. This will in turn give you a much cleaner, more sophisticated look.

Final Touches

Finally if you wish it, you can add some glitters or sticker to your nails. You can also try a nail art. Experiment according to your taste!

As you can see, it is an easy process to do your own manicure. And once you master the process, you will be able to have beautiful looking nails all the time, and saving money while at it. And if you continue to use Inglot O2M Breathable Nail Polish — you get to keep your nails healthy and strong too!
