Introducing IBX–Nail Strengthener and Repair






Your nails are going to love you for this! IBX is an innovative, two-part system that offers revolutionary benefits. It’s been tested, tried, and it triumphs every time! I’ve been trained by the masters, learned about the product inside and out, and now I can share it with you.

What is IBX? How does it work? What can it do? I’m so glad you asked!


(Pictures above are actual clients who used IBX)

Here’s what you need to know:

Q: What does the IBX Repair Treatment do?

A: The Repair Treatment is applied to specific spots for a variety of types of damage including spotting, peeling, splits, flaking, ridges, broken nails, paper thin nails, nails prone to chipping, and even nails that have had difficulty growing due to short or long term damage.

Q: How does the IBX Strength Treatment work?


A: Unlike a repair polish, which sits on the surface of your nail, IBX uses both essential oils and heat to penetrate inside the nail plate. Traditional repair polishes form a bond with the keratin in the nail and are removed and re-applied every time you change your nail color. IBX actually fuses the layers in the upper portion of the nail plate together with an Interpernetratin Polymer Network (IPN), locking itself within the nail plate–a permanent addition that will never need removal.

In some cases, cancer patients going though chemo treatments have had success keeping their nails in healthy condition with IBX!

Q: Who would benefit from the system?
A: Anyone who wants strong, healthy nails! It improves any existing conditions from strength and support to the over-all look and structure of the nail. Those with thin or weak nails will be especially happy with the results.

Q: Is there anyone who can’t wear it?
A: Unfortunately,yes. Anyone who has an allergy to acrylics or gels absolutely can not use the IBX system becuse the chemical structure is similar and it will produce the same response. And, as it’s a semi-permanent solution, the only removal is for the nail to grow out (which takes 2-3 months). Also, those with a nail disorder condition called Egg Shell Nails are not able to have this service done.

Q: I’ve never had gel or acrylics. How do I know if I’m allergic?
A: The only way to be sure is to go to an allergist and have a patch test done. It’s worth the time if you’ve never had gel or acrylics on your nails and you want to try IBX. If you’re cleared there, your good to get IBX. If your patch test shows any kind of reaction to those chemicals, it’s not worth the risk.

Q: How often is the treatment applied?
A: Treatment is prescribed based on the individual & the condition of their nails. Someone with heavily damaged nails will require more treatments. Everyone starts with 1 treatment of Repair on any damaged areas, followed immediately by 2 applications of the IBX Strengthener. After a week, they should come back for a second treatment of Repair and IBX Strengthener; this process repeats once a week until the nails are in prime condition. At this point, treatments can be done once a month or as needed.


Q: Where is IBX offered?
A: Only salons that have been trained and certified can offer this system. They should display their certification in an easily seen location in the salon. For a list of certified salons, check here. Sugar N Spice Services Salon was certified and was trained directly by the owner/creator of IBX, Linda Nordstrom.

Q: Once I do an IBX treatment, do I have to wait to get my nails done? What can I wear?
A: Immediately following your treatment, you can get a mani or pedi, polish, glitter toes, or shellac. But you may love your newly strengthened nails so much you’ll want to wear them as is.
Traditional gels and acrylics are not recommended at the same appointment because the back-fill process does not allow the treatment to reach as much of the nail plate. Also, application of IBX treatments must stay away from skin to avoid developing adverse reactions.

Q: What’s the point of paying extra when I am just going to put shellac or glitter toes on my nails?
A:Think of IBX as a built-in insurance policy for shellac and polish clients, simultaneously toughening the natural nail and protecting against frequent removals. It offers a level of strength and safety your natural nails deserve.

**Editor’s note: I just had the treatment done for the first time, and I can’t believe how wonderful my nails look! I had my shellac removed and, like usual for me, my nails were starting to peel. A quick application of the IBX Repair and Strengthen treatments sealed the peeling edges, filled in the small ridges I had developed, and made my nails look like I’ve been pampering them all my life!
