Acrylic nails are made with polymer, powdered acrylic product and monomer and a liquid acrylic product. This mixture is to be applied on to the original nail bases with a brush, which solidifies in a few seconds and then you can paint or make designs on this platform. Most acrylic nail product users suggest uses of Ethyl Methacrylate (EMA) as it looks real and is safe to use compared to the other artificial nail products. It is also advised to use these products as less as possible due to the hardening of your original nails. And try to visit a manicurist for the application after which you can paint them by yourself.

Acrylic nails are wonderful, however, the success that you have with them is up to YOU and your at home care. Too often I encounter people who have acrylics that do not take care of them and it creates more work for their technician as well as limits their ability to fully enjoy having beautiful nails.
