Avoid NSS bars...nice nails are not cheap!
NSS bars use MMA which is not recommended for use in acrylic nail products because it is much too hard, and can tear the nail off the finger easily. It is also solvent resistant, which makes it very difficult to remove. It takes a long time to remove MMA when soaking in acetone. Many technicians damage the nail plate when prepping for MMA, since that product needs grooves in the nail in order to stick well. A technician should always protect and preserve the natural nail under any enhancement product. And, finally, MMA should not be used in nail products because the FDA has determined that it is not safe for that purpose.
Methyl methacrylate (MMA) has a distinctive strong fruity odor. There are other indicators that might help you determine if a salon is using MMA.
Strong odor that physically affects you. Beauty services involving chemicals often have offensive odors, like perms. However, while the smell may offend you, it should not physically affect you. If you experience any tightness in your throat or chest, tingling in your fingers, lightheadedness, dizziness, or an odd taste in your mouth, it is possible that MMA is being used.
No manufacturer’s labeled containers -- your technician should show you what products they are using on you. If the acrylic liquid is not kept in a manufacturer’s labeled container or if it is in a gallon jug, ask what it is. If you do not receive a satisfactory answer, leave the salon.
Price -- While this is not always the case, low prices can be an indicator that the salon uses MMA. MMA is considerably less expensive to purchase than the safer alternative EMA. If MMA is being used, a low price will usually follow, but that is not necessarily always the case.
In an acrylic nail service, the product that is required most is liquid. If the liquid costs around $200 per gallon, how can the salon keep their prices so low, especially if they are located in a high rent shopping center? The most costly expenses in owning a salon are rent, salaries, and products. If the prices are low, where are they cutting costs? Are they compromising safety by using unlicensed operators? Are they using less expensive products that are not safe just to keep costs down? ASK THEM.
Physical reaction -- If your fingers burn, itch or hurt after receiving nail services, this can indicate MMA exposure. Beauty services are not a no-pain-no-gain arena. We hear of consumers who, when asked if their fingers hurt after getting acrylic nails, say yes, but only for a couple of days. Ask yourself, if you went to a hair salon and got your hair colored or permed and your head hurt, but only for a couple of days, would you go back? No, you would not. It is not normal for your fingers to hurt after professional services.
Pay cheap for nails and this is what you get... No sanitation, probably no insurance and cheap product that could take up to 2 hours to soak off - oh, not forgetting nail/cuticle damage from untrained drill users!! Do you really want to risk infection???
Nasty stuff...can take hours to get off, from experience, and leaves nails in a right mess!!!
According to a new BBC documentary, cheap nail salons could be using - and lying about using - chemical methyl methacrylate (MMA) which is so potent and poisonous that it’s banned in America.
This is really hilarious BUT shows exactly why you should make sure your nail technician is suitably qualified and insured with reputable companies.....and most certainly not got to NSS (Non-Standard Salons) bars!!!
