Why are acrylic nails so popular? Well acrylic is a liquid monomer and powder polymer system. Mixed together and applied with a brush the products polymerise to produce a solid. The heat from the nail initiates the bonding of the two products to the nail, this results in a strong nail system. Acrylic is a strong system and should be applied in a well ventilated room, the odour can be quite overpowering. If you are working as a mobile therapist ensure a window is open, if you are working in a salon then they must adhere to the health and safety practises set out by the current legislation in terms of ventilation and extraction etc.
