Why You Should Love Acrylic Nails
Tammy Taylor is the number one nail product worldwide, FDA-approved and 100% hypo-allergenic. Directly imported from the USA, our coloured acrylic is developed especially for nails (not the commercial industrial acrylic used in other salons).
Our products are triple sifted for flawless application and glass effect nails. We have a 100% non-lift guarantee and offer full acrylic sculpture – no plastic tips.
Our acrylic is also MMA free, but what does this mean? Methyl methacrylate (MMA) is full of harmful toxins, and used by many discount nail salons to save costs, instead of using acrylic liquid. MMA is a liquid monomer banned for use in the nail industry by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). MMA was used largely in the early 70’s as an inexpensive substitute for conventional acrylic liquid. It was banned due to the severe poisonous reactions it caused in customers and nail techs.
The FDA has issued a warning to consumers that the use of MMA in discount nail salons is on the upswing, and is severely dangerous to unsuspecting clients. The best way to combat the problem with MMA is to recognize the warning signs:
- Tingling or numbness of the fingers
- Whitening of the fingers
- Damaged nail beds
- Irritated skin around the nail bed
- Salons using MMA will have a markedly different smell to them than those using regular acrylic
Acrylic nails crafted with regular acrylic liquid offer many benefits to clients. Not only are the stronger than gel nails, they can help protect weak nails from chipping and breaking. They last for a long time, and provide many different design options to suit your style. They are natural looking, and have the added benefit of deterring nail biting!
Acrylic nails are hard and resistant to damage, and provide a beautifully smooth surface for applying nail art. Clients can also choose the length of their nails.
If you’re looking for beautiful sculpted acrylic nails that are long-lasting, natural-looking and free from harmful chemicals and toxins, look no further than your nearest Tammy Taylor Nails salon!
