I am an intermediate beginner, I'd say, and I think the ratio is very beginner-friendly and it does take some time to set which can be good or bad depending on who you are or what you're doing. 8oz is A LOT and yes, the product is COMPLETELY clear. Some people are saying it's cloudy or bubbly but they might have gotten a bad batch, don't use the correct monomer, or just don't know how to use it correctly. And I'm not trying to show off or anything, I just left in a pic of my cracked ice nails to show how clear it is. Also the size comparison pics are to the 1oz mia secret white (left) and the 2oz clear (right).
I'd say Mia Secret is a great choice for beginners because it's quality and you're not spending a ton of money on something you're not an expert at using.
After using bigger name brands for a while another Tech convinced me to try Mia Secret and I fell in love. I've been ordering Mia for the past year and 1/2 and never had a problem until this batch. How embarrassing is it to have all of the clients who's nails you did with this batch come back in a week with NO NAILS!!!! (my clients have gone as long as 7 weeks with no lifting or breaks) I even tested it on myself, I ordered a 4oz from the company I normally order from and applied it to one hand and did this batch on the other. I had 2 nails pop off 2 days later with the 8oz batch (the 8oz even smells diff from my 4oz). All of my products are stored correctly until they are ready for use so there should be no reason unless what I got was a bad or fake batch. lesson learned I wont order from anyone else except directly from Mia Secret or from my trusted company. (ordered bad batch from Beauty1234)
i love Mia secrets products im not getting paid to review this product im a beginner maybe closer to intermediate and im getting closer to having my clients nails last longer than 2 weeks i have to work on my prep skills but in terms of my products helping longevity mia secret products help my nails last 4-5+ weeks when i get my prep on point and this powder came today i only ordered it yesterday morning i was so amped when i saw the box at my door like what OK !! I see you NEXT DAY DELIVERY! 😄😄😄😂😂
Alright so I love Mia secret clear acrylic. Is so good and perfect. I use it on all of my clients. They always come on time. It still has the seal so you know it’s new. Nothing bad to say. And it sells for a great price. Highly recommend. Works with different monomers as well. You can see more photos of me using this powder on my Instagram @sitting_prettynails
I purchased the Mia secret monomer and had some leftover acrylic powder of a different brand. I couldn't get the acrylic to set right, it had a weird texture and was beyond difficult to work with. Went ahead and purchased this Mia Secret Clear Acrylic Powder and let me just tell you, WOW. I knew I may have an issue mixing manufacturers products but I didn't imagine it would be that drastic. The Mia Secret Monomer used with the primer and powder gave me excellent results. The texture was silky and it was very easy to work with. It set very nicely and left me with beautiful strong nails. I also smoke and have not had any problems with yellowing. I highly recommend this product as long as you are using only Mia Secret Products.
My number one go to clear powder for acrylic! Mia secrets system is amazing overall and I’ve been using it for many years without any lifting, easy breakage, yellowing, weakness etc. I always buy the 8oz container from this seller in particular, and have been for a long time. My only complaint is the raise in price. It used to be $20 for 8oz but now it’s $30+ and rising, I will continue to purchase from this seller as it’s still the best deal especially with quarantine closing down local nail supply shops but I am kind of saddened by the price raise overall. But this is still a very good product, it’s crystal clear, very very easy to work with, beginner friendly (once you get used to how it flows) and doesn’t yellow or distort and change the color of other powders I use. Very universal and easy to use overall. I refuse to use any other brand of clear powder!
This acrylic is so easy to work with for any level of experience. so complain about it being runny, easy fix....a few drops of acetone will fix that if its an issue. also, I must've gotten a weird batch, because my powder had lots of tiny blue/black looking specs in it, which was a headache because it was very noticeable with it being clear. I contacted the seller, sent pics, and they sent out a replacement. I absolutely appreciate such good customer service and will spend my money with them again!
Perfect size. It came earlier than expected-which made me happy! I used this with some fluorescent powders to make rings for my daughter, niece, and another child in our neighborhood to see how durable it is. Multiple drops and roughness of these tom boys haven't damaged the rings at all. And I was pleasantly surprised at how smooth the powder sets up. I had to do very little sanding down. Just pop out of the mold, trim rough edges and clear coat.
