Why Water Based Nail Polish?
Water-based nail polish has been a long held dream for cosmetic scientists. There has not been a quality water-based nail polish on the market until 5 years ago when Suncoat launched its water-based nail polish line. From Suncoat’s experience and knowledge, the major technical challenges for formulating water-based nail polish is lack of adhesion (to human nails) and slow drying time. Suncoat Products Inc. has also faced these challenges yet has persevered for a long time to overcome them. Thanks to Yingchun Liu, the chemist and founder of Suncoat, Suncoat finally broke through, and came up with an innovative technology that makes today’s Suncoat water-based nail polish a quality product line.
Toluene and formaldehyde-free chemical nail polish is not comparable to water-based nail polish. In these nail polishes, toluene is replaced by other chemicals, namely butyl acetate and ethyl acetate. So toluene and formaldehyde-free nail polish are still 100% chemical nail polish. Chemical solvents, namely acetates, are still the major ingredient in the polish: 60-70%. These nail polishes still give off chemical fumes, pollute the air, have an offensive odor, and are highly flammable and explosive. They still can harm nails, making the nails dry, yellow, brittle and weak.
In Suncoat water-based nail polish, the chemical solvents (toluene and acetates etc) are replaced by water. Toluene and formaldehyde-free nail polish is only one step forward while Suncoat water-based Nail Polish is a revolutionary advance!
Earth pigments and carmine are used for Suncoat nail polish colors.

Nail Polish Application
Clean your nails:
In preparation for using Suncoat water-based nail polish, ensure that your nails are dry and free of grease, skin lotion, and dirt. Clean your nails with soap and water. Oil and skin lotion repel water-based polish, so they may significantly affect the polish’s durability.
No base coat needed: as Suncoat water-based nail polish will not stain your nails.
Apply multi-thin coats for long lasting effect, and to avoid streaking. Brush on lightly and evenly. Two coats, or more, are needed for a long-lasting finish. Allow the polish to dry between coats - 30 seconds, or more, depending on the humidity and temperature.
Can add one or 2 drops of water to the polish bottle if the polish is too thick. Shake well before use. Adding too much water can cause color separation.
Suncoat Crystal Clear Top Coat (color ID #23): is applied for a greater resistance to chipping and gives that extra professional touch to your manicure. It also enables the finish to last up to 2 - 3 days longer.
Avoid soaking your nails in hot water during the first couple of hours after the application. Normal showering and dishwashing is usually fine after one hour as long as the polish is not scratched. Ideally do not use very hot water on your nails for the first 4 hours after application. Although dry to the touch, the polish is still curing / drying throughout the day (or overnight if applied in the evening).
Some of the nail polish colors may not be as intense as they look in the bottle. This is partly because earth pigments, instead of FD&S dyes, are being used to color the nail polish. Apply a minimum of 2 thin coats and then additional thin coats to strengthen the color.
