Acrylic Nails Enhancements

We choose to use Illume Acrylic systems however at times we also work with ONYX and IBD.

We choose Illume as its a revolutionary new Acrylic system that has created a sensation in Australia. The unique formulas and technology of Illume enables the technician to produce the perfect nail enhancement every time and damage to the natural nail should now be a thing of the past.
A key element in the Illume range is the specifically designed and uniquely formulated illume™ Activate™. This amazing new product penetrates the nail plate and surrounding tissue to help remove contamination reducing the risk of fungus. This then allows the gentle and safe removal of the true cuticle, effectively eliminating the need for harsh filing and subsequent damage to the natural nail. With Non Yellowing properties, self levelling formulas and ease of use, the illume™ Fusion™ acrylic system is certainly a world class product.

Important Information

At Inaar Skin & Body we strongly avoid the use of ingredients that may cause ill side effects. We do not use MMA based products.

What is MMA?

Methyl methacrylate or MMA is a bonding agent used in artificial nail products. It is present in some acrylic nail preparations as it sets much faster and adheres very strongly to the nail more so than other products, and is much cheaper to manufacture. However the use of MMA has been associated with adverse health effects.

What Health Effects are Associated with MMA?

Industrial use of MMA has been known to cause adverse health effects in some people which have included irritation of the eyes, nose, throat and respiratory tract. Persons repeatedly exposed to significant levels of MMA commonly complain of drowsiness, light headedness, dizzy spells and trembling of the hands. Its use as a nail product may contribute to nail damage and deformities in nail growth. Repeated contact with MMA can also cause allergic skin sensitisation/dermatitis with symptoms such as skin redness, itching, rash and swelling. While consumers who use products containing MMA may be at risk of suffering adverse health effects, the risk is much higher for nail technicians who are frequently and normally exposed to the products during work activities.

How do you know if a Product Contains MMA?

• MMA is listed as an active ingredient on the label.

• The product has a strong irritating chemical odour that does not smell like other acrylic liquids.

• The product sets much harder, feels less flexible and is very difficult to file and remove. Usually it is removed with clippers or the technician simply pops a tool underneath the nail and pops it off.The nail extensions are extremely hard or virtually impossible to remove with normal solvents designed to remove acrylic nails.

• The product may be much cheaper in comparison (approximately one third the price) to other acrylic nail alternatives. Therefore the price you pay is generaly cheaper as the product is brought in from overseas.

As a consumer you have the right to ask and query the nail technician as to what product they are using. 

It's always a great idea to make sure your nail technician has Australian Qaulifications as this ensures your technician is qualified and understands the use of banned substances and health and hygiene regulations for the nail industry.
