  • FIELD OF THE INVENTION
  • The present invention relates to radiation curable mammalian nail coating compositions, kits containing these compositions, and methods of their use. The present invention also relates to methods for the preparation of removable gel-based nail coating compositions.
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • Consumers use nail coatings to cosmetically enhance the appearance of their nails or protect the nails from the abuses found in their everyday environment. However, nail coating compositions typically lack the durability desired by consumers or are difficult to apply or remove in terms of time and/or effort. The lack of durability is often evidenced by a chipping or peeling of the coating soon after the original coating has been applied, requiring at least in part a reapplication of the coating in an attempt to recreate the aesthetic appearance or the therapeutic benefits of the original nail coating.
  • Lilley (U.S. Pat. Nos. 6,391,938, 6,803,394 and 6,599,958) discloses light cured nail coatings that are applied to natural nails and/or artificial nail tips for cosmetic purposes.
  • Ellingson et al. (U.S. Pat. No. 6,306,375) discloses long wear nail polish compositions having defined surface properties, as well as kits, films and methods of their use.
  • Ellingson et al. (U.S. Pat. No. 6,123,931) discloses polyurethane and polyacryl nail polish compositions useful as coatings for mammalian nails as well as methods of their use.
  • Ellingson et al. (U.S. Pat. No. 6,136,300) discloses long wear nail polish compositions having adhesion, toughness and hardness characteristics useful as coatings for mammalian nails as well as methods of their use.
  • Smith III et al. (U.S. Pat. No. 6,080,414) discloses films and kits useful as polishes for mammalian nails and methods of their use, reportedly having long wear characteristics.
  • Farer et al. (U.S. Pat. No. 6,656,483) discloses cosmetic compositions containing polyurethane for application to the skin and nails.
  • Farer et al (U.S. Pat. No. 6,156,325) and Carrion et al, (U.S. Pat. No. 6,555,096 and related published US Patent Application No. 2002/0102222) disclose nail enamel compositions containing a urea-modified thixotropic agent.
  • Sirdesai et al. discloses a polymerizable thixotropic oligomeric composition for sculpting artificial fingernails which is non-yellowing, and which maintains its shape when formed and polymerizes rapidly under actinic radiation.
  • Traditional nail coatings generally include two varieties: polish type, which cure by solvent evaporation, and polymer type, which cure by chemical reaction. Polymer type materials include, for example, powder/liquid systems and gel systems.
  • Gel systems, in contrast to the traditional polish and other polymer-type systems, particularly ultraviolet-cured gel systems, often comprise a gel that may be brushed onto the nails, cured, and shaped to create lifelike artificial nails. As compared with traditional polishes or other non-gel polymer-type systems, gel systems are relatively easy to use, are applicable in less time, are lightweight on the nail, have no odor (or only minimal odor), are durable, and have a high quality shine.
  • While thicker nail coatings may in general be more desirable due to their richer color and/or greater durability of the finished nail coating, it can be challenging to reasonably rapidly and substantially cure the entirety of the coating after its application. This is especially true for thicker and/or more highly pigmented UV-curable gel-based nail coating systems. This may be due, in part, to the nature of these coatings. For example, while UV light may readily penetrate the outermost regions of the coating composition to initiate the cure, the higher levels and/or darker hues of certain pigments in some coating compositions may limit penetration of the UV radiation into the innermost regions of the applied gel coating composition and thus increase the time required to substantially cure the entirety of the coating.
  • Often there is also a trade off in the choice of nail coatings between a particular coating's durability and its ease of removal. For example, some prior art gel coating compositions, while durable, cannot be readily removed by typical “soak-off” procedures and require a more laborious removal process. Alternatively, while some prior art gel coating compositions are very easily removed; those properties may lead to premature chipping and/or peeling of the coating, requiring additional maintenance or reapplication to stabilize the coating's overall appearance.
  • Thus, there is a real need in the art for gel systems that can be formulated to provide durable curable nail coatings, especially those capable of being removed relatively easily by ‘soak-off” procedures. There is also a need for gel systems that are capable of being applied easily and/or in less time than typically required by prior art gel systems or polishes. Further, there is a need for gel systems that provide such coatings regardless of the required coating color while providing a richness of color throughout the nail coating. Such gel coatings may give a more appealing and defect free appearance. The present invention is directed to these and other important ends.

    DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS
  • As used herein, the term “non-aqueous gel composition” refers to a gel composition having no more than a de minimis quantity of water.
  • As used herein, “alkylene” refers to a saturated straight chain or branched hydrocarbon diradical having from about 2 to about 15 carbon atoms (and all combinations and subcombinations of ranges and specific numbers of carbon atoms therein), preferably with from about 4 to about 12, more preferably 6 to about 10, yet more preferably about 7 to about 9, with about 8 to about 9 carbon atoms being most preferred. Alkylene groups include, but are not limited to, ethylene, n-propylene, methylethylene, dimethylmethylene, n-butylene, isobutylene, dimethylethylene, methylpropylene, ethylethylene, n-pentylene, isopentylene, neopentylene, trimethylethylene, dimethylpropylene, methylbutylene, ethylpropylene, n-hexylene, isohexylene, neo-hexylene, methylpentylene, dimethylbutylene, and trimethylpropylene, methylethylpropylene, n-heptylene, isoheptylene, neo-heptylene, dimethylpentylene, ethylpentylene, trimethylbutylene, methylethylbutylene, n-octylene, isooctylene, neo-octylene, methyl heptylene, dimethylhexylene, trimethylpentylene, methylethylpentylene, n-nonylene, isononylene, neo-nonylene, methyloctylene, dimethylheptylene, trimethylhexylene, methylethylhexylene, trimethylheptylene, methylethylheptylene, n-decylene, isodecylene, neo-decylene, methylnonylene, dimethyloctylene, trimethylheptylene, methylethylheptylene, trimethyloctylene, methylethyloctylene, and tetramethylhexylene.
  • As used herein, “polyurethane acrylate oligomer” refers to polyurethane oligomers wherein the acrylate portion of the oligomer is derived from one or more hydroxyalkylacrylic acid esters or hydroxyalkylmethacrylic acid esters, preferably hydroxyalkylmethacrylic acid esters. Non-limiting examples of hydroxyalkylmethacrylic acid esters include hydroxyethylmethacrylic acid ester and hydroxypropylmethacrylic acid ester.
  • The compositions, kits containing such compositions, and methods of use for such compositions and/or kits of the present invention are directed in part to meet a need in the industry for colored, preferably highly pigmented, gel-based coating compositions with improved properties as compared to prior art nail coatings. Thus, in certain embodiments, the present invention provides gel-based nail coating compositions that are removable using typical “soak-off ” procedures, i.e., compositions that may be broken down and removed with solvents readily available for such purpose, including for example, acetone and/or other ketones, short chain alcohols, such as isopropanol, diacetone alcohol, C1-C8 alcohols, and the like, acrylic removers, tip removers, and/or various other acetate solvents, or any combination thereof.
  • In certain other embodiments, the compositions of the present invention may be cured by any process that may be incorporated into the composition which provides a free radical source capable of curing the nail coating compositions, so long as the resultant compositions may be safely employed and applied. This includes for example, any thermochemically or photochemically induced free radical processes as well as those employing catalysts to initiate the generation of free radicals and hence the curing of the nail coating composition that are known to the ordinarily skilled artisan.
  • In some preferred embodiments, typical compositions of the present invention comprise a combination of a gel base and a pigmented lacquer (i.e., nail polish), or the components of each thereof, that is activated and hardened under ultraviolet (“UV”) light. Alternatively, typical compositions of the present invention comprise a combination of a gel base and a more heavily pigmented nail art paint, or the components of each thereof, that is activated and hardened under ultraviolet (“UV”) light.
  • Any UV single or multiple light emitting source is contemplated herein by the inventor. The UV light source is not critical so long as the light source is a UV spectrum range light emitter and the power of such single or multiple light source is sufficient to activate and/or harden (i.e., cure) the nail coating composition in a desirable time. Typical lights may include UV light bulb sources and/or light emitting diode (“LED”) lights, or any other equivalent light source, or any combination thereof. Typical lights may include UV light bulb sources and/or light emitting diode (“LED”) lights, or any other equivalent light source, or any combination thereof.
  • In other embodiments, the compositions of the present invention may be applied in analogous fashion to typical prior art polishes, such as by brush application.
  • In some embodiments, the compositions of the present invention may be applied and set or cure the nail gel to final product coating in less time, preferably at least about 5, 10, 20, 30, 40, and even up to about 50% less than the time required to apply and/or set known nail gels.
  • Thus, in certain embodiments, compositions, kits containing such compositions, and methods of use for such compositions and/or kits of the present invention provide nail coatings that have the qualities of a nail polish with at least some, and preferably many of the benefits of a gel application. Benefits of certain embodiments of the present invention may include, but are not limited to easier application of the nail coating compositions, shorter manufacturing mix times of up to about 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60 or even 70% less mixing time than those for known polishes or gels, and/or faster or easier removal of the cured nail coating after use.
  • Users may further benefit from natural nail enhancement and reinforcement found in certain of the compositions of the present invention's embodiments. In some embodiments, the compositions of the present invention provide coatings that allow their removal in up to about 10, 20, 30, 40, or even up to about 50% percent less time than current polishes, gels, or similar products.
  • In other embodiments, the compositions, kits containing such compositions, and or methods employing such compositions and/or kits of the present invention provide coatings that may provide a harder and/or less brittle finish, more durability, and/or better nail coverage than prior art coatings. In some embodiments, complete coverage may be obtained with two applications of the coating.
  • In other embodiments of the present invention, the compositions and/or kits containing such compositions are provided as a bottle application, and in yet other embodiments of the present invention the compositions and/or kits containing such compositions are provided as a brush application.
  • The compositions, kits containing such compositions, and methods of use for such compositions and/or kits of the present invention may offer other further advantages as compared to currently available ultraviolet-cured gel products that are currently available. For example, in some embodiments of the present invention, the compositions are contained in bottles designed to substantially exclude UV light to deter activation of the formula by outside light during storage. The materials used to construct bottles designed to hold the nail coating compositions of the present invention may inherently exclude such light in certain embodiments. Alternately, other bottles not possessing these characteristics, including, for example, clear bottles, may be finished or coated with, for example, one or more special UV-protective coatings, including clear coatings. Either of these bottle alternatives may enable more of the nail gel to be used by the end user, for example, by reducing the level of inadvertent activation of the gel contained in the bottle prior to its application. In some instances this may allow substantially all of the product to be used for its intended purpose. A further advantage of providing the compositions in a clear-coated bottle is that the ultimate customer may then have a more ready ability to see and/or select the desired gel nail coating composition color. This is contrasted to existing ultraviolet-cured gel products that are traditionally provided in an opaquely colored white or black jar, which denies the customer an ability to see the actual color of the nail coating composition.
  • Accordingly, the present invention is directed, in part, to radiation curable gel nail coating compositions, comprising:
      • from about 40% to about 60% by weight of di-[hydroxyethyl methacrylic] trimethylhexyl dicarbamate based on the weight of the nail coating composition;
      • from about 3% to about 5% by weight of at least one methacrylic acid ester based on the weight of the nail coating composition;
      • from about 3% to about 6% by weight hydroxyethyl methacrylate based on the weight of the nail coating composition;
      • from about 3% to about 6% by weight hydroxypropyl methacrylate based on the weight of the nail coating composition;
      • from about 0.1% to about 0.4% by weight of a photoinitiator based on the weight of the nail coating composition; and
        • a pigmented nail lacquer.
  • In other embodiments, the present invention is directed, in part, to radiation curable gel nail coating compositions, comprising:
      • from about 40% to about 60% by weight of di-[hydroxyethyl methacrylic] trimethylhexyl dicarbamate based on the weight of the nail coating composition;
      • from about 3% to about 5% by weight of at least one methacrylic acid ester based on the weight of the nail coating composition;
      • from about 3% to about 6% by weight hydroxyethyl methacrylate based on the weight of the nail coating composition;
      • from about 3% to about 6% by weight hydroxypropyl methacrylate based on the weight of the nail coating composition;
      • from about 0.1% to about 0.4% by weight of a photoinitiator based on the weight of the nail coating composition; and
      • a nail art paint.
  • In yet other embodiments, the present invention is directed in part to radiation curable gel nail coating compositions, comprising:
      • from about 40% to about 60% by weight of di-[hydroxyethyl methacrylic] trimethylhexyl dicarbamate based on the weight of the nail coating composition;
      • from about 3% to about 6% by weight of a methacrylic acid ester based on the weight of the nail coating composition;
      • from about 2% to about 6% by weight hydroxyethyl methacrylate based on the weight of the nail coating composition;
      • from about 2% to about 6% by weight hydroxypropyl methacrylate based on the weight of the nail coating composition;
      • from about 0.1% to about 1% by weight of a photoinitiator based on the weight of the nail coating composition; and
      • from about 25 to about 40% by weight of a nail art paint based on the weight of the nail coating composition.
  • In some other preferred embodiments, the radiation curable gel nail coating compositions of the present invention are substantially non-aqueous, and more preferably do not contain more than a de minimis amount of water.
  • In certain preferred embodiments, the radiation curable gel nail coating compositions of the present invention include a polyurethane acrylate oligomer (or International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients (“INCI”) designation, “Di-Hema Trimethylhexyl Dicarbamate”). The polyurethane acrylate oligomer may include monomeric, oligomeric and/or polymeric species, and any combinations thereof. In certain more preferred embodiments, the polyurethane acrylate oligomer is present at a range of from about 40% to about 60%, more preferably from about 49% to about 55%, and even more preferably at a range of from about 52% to about 53% by weight of the nail coating composition, still more preferably at a level of about 52.5%. In some alternately preferred embodiments, the polyurethane acrylate oligomer is present at a range of from about 40% to about 50%, more preferably from about 40% to about 48%, and even more preferably at a range of from about 40% to about 46% by weight of the nail coating composition. In yet other alternately preferred embodiments, the polyurethane acrylate oligomer is present at a range of from about 45% to about 55%, more preferably from about 46% to about 52% by weight of the nail coating composition.

The preferred level of the binding agent or photoinitiator is somewhat dependent on the pigments, dyes, and/or colorants color used in the nail coating compositions. While not wishing to be held to any theory or theories of operation, it is believed that darker pigments, dyes, and/or colorants used in the nail coating compositions or those pigments having relatively higher opacity characteristics require relatively higher levels of photoinitiator than compositions using lighter colors or pigments with relatively lower opacity characteristics to substantially cure the coating in an desirable time frame.
  • In certain other preferred embodiments, the photoinitiator included in the compositions of the present invention is other than a phosphinate, phosphine oxide, sulfanyl ketone, sulfonyl azide, polymeric morpholinoketone, alpha amino ketone or iodonium hexafluorophosphate salt.
  • In some preferred embodiments, for ease of manufacture, the compositions are prepared by blending a gel base formulation and a nail art paint or pigmented nail lacquer (nail polish). Nail polishes are readily available for individual (“at home”) use by consumers, while nail art paints are typically prepared for commercial use rather than retail markets. The nail art paint or pigmented nail lacquer typically comprises one or more of a solvent, film former, plasticizer, cross-linking agent, colorant, suspending agent, pigment and/or dye, pH adjuster, and stability enhancer. While nail art paint and pigmented nail lacquer contain some of the same materials, the relative ratios of the contained materials typically differ. For example nail art paints are more highly pigmented than their pigmented nail lacquer counterparts. The higher level of pigment could, for example, require more suspending agent. Alternatively, the nail art paint pigments may increase the overall viscosity of the nail art paint or nail coating composition. In such systems, it may be desirable to increase solvent levels to provide increased flowability to the gel nail coating composition. It may also be desirable to add pigment stabilizing agents, such as polyester copolymers or other pigment stabilizing agents known to the skilled artisan, when higher pigment levels or less readily dispersible pigments are used in the nail art paints or nail coating compositions of the present invention to assist in providing uniform final product. Thus, in some preferred embodiments, the nail art paints or nail coating compositions containing such nail art paints further comprise polyester copolymers, such as those derived from diols, preferably branched alkylene diols, for example, neopentyl glycol, and alkane diacids, such as adipic acid, alkane polyacids, or alkane or aryl acid anhydrides, such as trimellitic anhydride.

  • The compositions according to the invention may also include one or more additives recognized by a person skilled in the art as being capable of incorporation into such nail coating compositions. For example, the composition may include at least one cosmetically active compound, which may be selected from vitamins, minerals, moisturizers, hardening agents such as silica and formaldehyde/glyoxal, UV absorbers, and fibers such as nylon or aramide fibers. Additional additive ingredients may include keratin and its derivatives, melanin, collagen, cysteine, chitosan and its derivatives, ceramides, biotin, oligoelements, protein hydrolysates, and phospholipids.
  • A person skilled in the art can, without undue experimentation, select those optional additional compounds and/or their quantity, so that the advantageous properties of the composition according to the invention are not, or are not substantially, impaired by the inclusion of such additives.
  • The compositions according to the invention may be prepared by a person skilled in the art on the basis of his or her general knowledge and according to the state of the art.
  • The compositions according to the invention are also useful in the kits and or methods of use of the present invention.
  • The invention will be further clarified by the following examples, which are intended to be illustrative of the invention, but not limiting thereof.
  • Typical Method of Blending a Nail Polish and a Gel Base
  • While all of the components of the pigmented lacquer and gel may be individually formulated into a final product, it is preferable in some embodiments to blend a previously prepared pigmented lacquer (i.e., nail polish) with a gel formulation. By way of general guidance, the gel formulation and lacquer are blended together using any stirring or mixing equipment capable of providing general mixing for a time and under conditions to adequately blend the lacquer and gel formulation. Typically a time of 0.5 to 3 hours is sufficient, preferably from about 0.5 to about 1 hour, more preferably 30 to 50 minutes. As a general rule the mixture can be heated to any temperature that facilitates the blending operation while maintaining the stability of the components, lacquers or formulations. For example, the combination of components may be heated to about 30 to about 150 degrees Fahrenheit, more preferably about 50 to about 130 degrees Fahrenheit, still more preferably form about 80 to about 110 degrees Fahrenheit. While the preferred ratio of lacquer to gel in the compositions does depend to some extent upon the lacquer chosen, the ratio typically falls within the range of about 35 to 45 volume parts, more preferably about 39 to 41 parts of lacquer to about 100 parts of gel formulation.
  • In similar manner to the pigmented lacquers, nail art paints may be blended with gel bases as disclosed hereinabove to provide certain of the final product gel coating compositions. While the preferred ratio of nail art paint to gel in the compositions does depend to some extent upon the nail art paint chosen, the ratio typically falls within the range of from about 40% to about 60% by weight parts, more preferably about 45% to about 55% by weight of the gel base component (i.e., component including polyurethane acrylate oligomer, methacrylate ester, any monoesters of methacrylic acid and a diol, and photoinitiator) based on the weight of the final nail coating composition.
  • Example 1
  • Hypothetical Procedure for Blending Pigmented Lacquer and Gel Base
  • A previously prepared pigmented lacquer (such as a commercially available nail polish) is blended with a gel formulation of the present invention (typical gel formulation shown below) in a ratio of 40 parts by volume of lacquer to 100 parts by volume of gel formulation, The blend is heated to approximately 110 degrees F.
