Episode #90

Question 339: A company I teach for told me that traditional acrylics and gel polish contain an ingredient called methacrylate and it is known for weakening/softening nails. Have you ever worn traditional acrylics and gel polish for a long time and had to them remove and you noticed that your nail are extremely soft and weak? Well, it’s the methacrylate in the formulation that weakens and soften them.

Question 340: Are there any supplements that would help strengthen and repair nails and if so, how soon would the difference be noticeable?

Question 341: A local nail tech was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer and she is the 3rd one I’ve heard about.  Have acrylic nails been around long enough to know the danger to the nail tech who inhales the chemicals every day?
