Learning to do my own acrylic nails was a quarantine project I was determined to conquer. After making some beginner mistakes, like putting the monomer in a (what I thought was) plastic container and having it eat straight through it overnight or doing my nails in the comfort of my tiny, unventilated bedroom, I was pleased with my results. Definitely make sure you're in a large ventilated area or can open a window because if not, you will go to bed high off fumes.... oops. Anyways, learning to get the right bead size was super easy because this acrylic is pretty fool proof. It evens itself out super well and allows lots of time to manipulate without running off the nail. Overall, a great purchase for a beginner.
New to acrylics but not new to doing my own nails. I'm usually a fiberglass nail person but during this pandemic I realized how much I missed my acrylic nails. So I decided to try it on my own. I have seen this brand many times for many different things and decided to give it a go. I was impressed with the packaging and that the liquid was actually in the bottle (Yes I have had liquid be non-existent when it got arrived). I am also impressed with the amount of product that was provided. I was worried about the actual amount and how far it would stretch and I'm thoroughly impressed. I would say this is a quick drying acrylic And it did take a while to get used to. I would recommend and plan on using this product to continue my at home nail journey.
I had to stop working on my practice hand to write this review!!!!! First off, I love Modelones products. Secondly, if you haven’t gotten this powder, GET IT. It’s so smooth and easy to work with. I use the 2 bead method and I can literally pick enough up and it levels itself down the nail. I’ll be placing another order VERY SOON.
I recommend you purchase the dehydrator and primer when you order the acrylic powder and monomer for the best results. I wish that it was possible to purchase just the monomer separately or make a lager size with the clear acrylic set because it is a small bottle. Also I don't understand why the company offers the four colored acrylic powders with out any monomer! How are you expected to use them without the monomer! This is the reason I give it a four star. I really like the overall effectiveness and quality of Modelones and highly recommend you purchase the top coat. It is absolutely like glass over their gel polish. Super shiny!
This acrylic system seems very sketchy to me. First of all the odor of the monomer was unbearably strong, and the fumes made me lightheaded right away. It took HOURS to get the stench out of a well-ventilated room, so look out for that. I have no real complaints on the acrylic powder itself, but along with the monomer it comes with it doesn't work well. It is impossible to get a consistent bead, and its drying time was super long and uneven. Not to mention it would get EXTREMELY HOT, like uncomfortable to touch hot. It was also stretchy and gummy, which I think is a sign that it the dangerous kind of acrylic? IDK. I do not recommend this product! Save your money!
This product is full of MMA. The polymer smells fruity which indicates the use of MMA. I may be cheap in price however do not use this product on human clients. You can use it to practice if you’re a beginner with acrylic nails but do not and I repeat do not use this on a paying client unless you want to get sued.
This is a great product. I was spending a fortune on my nails at the salon and had to find a way to keep my nails, but not fork over all that money. I searched and searched for just the right product, as I didn't want to end up with a product that wasn't what I needed. I finally found Modelones. It was just what I needed without all the unnecessary bells and whistles. I have the electric buffer and sander for my nails, and all I needed this product for is to back fill after my nails have grown. I have included a photo of the finished job. I am more than happy with this product. I am definitely a beginner, so I had a real case of the jitters, but after I finally figured out the way it works, it was easy enough. I don't see me going back to the salon any time soon.
I’m not sure if you can use this with other brand acrylic powders because i tried to use it with mia secret and it didn’t spread AT ALL it was horrible , i haven’t tried it with the powder it comes with yet but i really just bought it for the monomer because the brand i usually use was sold out , but i wasted my money with this one.
If you are looking for crystal clear nails or a glass effect I don’t think this is a good option. There are many tiny bubbles when the product dries and after a few hours or so they turn a very obvious yellow color so it’s not as see-through and also not the color you want. I don’t think this is good for beginners because you want to give yourself the best possible chance to have nice looking nails. I think a purple colored monomer might give a clearer effect
It works good but dries really fast. I need to find new monomer now because the smell just consumes the whole house and I have kids and parents in the house so it's a no-no. Won't be buying this product again(the monomer part) but the acrylic powder, can't say too much on it until I try others since I am slightly a beginner. Sad that I won't be able to do acrylic until I find better monomer thugh.
