4 Reasons Why MMA Should NOT be Used for Acrylics and How You Can Spot the Difference l with VIDEO

  1. MMA (Methyl Methacrylate) nail products do not adhere well to the nail plate. To make these products adhere, nail technicians often shred up or etch the surface of the nail. This thins the nail plate and makes it much weaker
  2. MMA creates the hardest and most rigid enhancements to the nail, which makes them very difficult to break. When jammed or caught, the overly filed and thinned natural nail plate will often break before the MMA enhancement, leading to serious nail damage and possible pain
  3. MMA is extremely difficult to remove. Since it will not dissolve in product removers, it is usually pried from the nail plate, creating even more damage
  4. The FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) says don’t use MMA monomers! The FDA bases its prohibition on the large number of consumer complaints resulting from the use of MMA nail enhancements in the 70s and they continue to maintain this position today

Here are some examples of people removing MMA and EMA monomers from their acrylics and how you can spot the difference.
