Q&A

How does Powder Perfection work?

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.
