    Most acrylic goes jelly like and sticky when removing but MMA will take ages to get to that state and be very difficult to remove. Naio is a well respected brand and certainly doesn’t contain MMA so you have no need to worry.

    Nails techs - time management help!

    Look into getting trained to sculpt instead of using tips, that’ll save you 30 mins immediately. I can’t actually remember the last time I used tips and I can do a full set of L&P with gel polish in 60 mins.
