What can substitute acrylic liquid?

Similarly, what can you use instead of monomer?

Monomer is acrylic, and it is necessary to combine with the acrylic powder for the acrylic to cure/harden. Water will not work.

Also, is acrylic liquid and monomer the same thing? Monomer is the correct chemical term for acrylic liquid - as in polymer is the correct term for acrylic powder.

Also question is, can you do acrylic nails without liquid?

So If you talk about traditional acrylic nails, you need a liquid monomer. There is another option if you want to get acrylic nails without the monomer - by using Acrylic Dip Powders. Dipping powders are Odorless and bonded with a glue called cyanoacrylate.

Can you dip powder with acrylic liquid?

Traditional Acrylic cannot be used with Resin or our YN SlickPour Gel because it will result in something chunky and unmanageable. It could be used with monomer/liquid to sculpt a traditional set or as a dipping powder to provide a gel polish-like service.

Can I use non acetone instead of acrylic liquid?

Using cuticle oil keeps the acrylic nail flexible and stops your natural nail from drying out and separating from the acrylic at the free edge. Many manufacturers say to use non-acetone polish remover. As long as you do not soak the nail in acetone, acetone will not damage the acrylic nail.

Since there are so many different types of powders available, and these powders contain different levels of initiators and other additives, it is impossible to develop a monomer liquid that works with any polymer powder.

Can you use alcohol instead of monomer?

Alcohol does not have any monomers in it to connect to the polymers in powder so if it even does clump into ball it will not be as secure or lasting like normal acrylic made with polymer and monomer.
