Miracle Glue is a great
fingernail glue - for acrylic nails or real ones. If you get a
torn nail you can repair it with the glue and it will grow out.
Acrylic fingernails can also be repaired with Miracle Glue.
Below is an email I received recently from a happy customer.
"BUT! What I
use it for the most is when I crack, break or chip a nail. I put just
a dot (not even a drop) on the spot then sprinkle just a little
acrylic fingernail powder (you can get acrylic nail powder at any drug
store in with the nail care products). It dries instantly and is like
cement! My co-worker wears acrylic nails. One day she cracked one to
the point it could bend. I had her hold the crack open, applied a
little glue, hold it closed and sprinkled some acrylic powder on the
glue line that had beaded up along the crack, then buffed it with an
emery board and applied a coat of polish. No one knew there was a
crack there. When she went to her nail salon the manicurist wanted to
know what she had used because it was like cement! It's better than
any nail glue I've ever, ever used." - AL
I've been doing trade
shows now for almost three years with the glue and I've repaired
countless ladies nails with Miracle Glue. Real ones and acrylic
nails. Do be cautious with Miracle Glue. Generally, it is not as
vicious as Super Glue but it is still a cyanoacrylate - it is
classified as an irritant - not necessarily the best thing for your
system. You can check out the first aid page

Here's some general information
regarding safety and use with fingernails. The data below is
referring to nail chemicals in general. Miracle Glue has a
similar base to the nail glues. It has no solvents.
Eye contact with vapors and airborne
dusts can cause irritation and redness, burning, itching, or
discomfort. Your eyes may water and your vision may briefly become
distorted. Once you stop being exposed, these effects usually go away
fairly quickly. Chemicals which can cause these effects include
acrylates (ethyl methacrylate, butyl methacrylate, isobutyl
methacrylate, methacrylic acid, and ethyl cyanoacrylate), and many
solvents, such as methyl ethyl ketone and acetone.
These same chemicals can also irritate
your nose, throat, and lungs. Symptoms include irritation or soreness
of the nose and throat, hoarseness, coughing, lung congestion, chest
tightness, and shortness of breath. Cigarette smoking can worsen these
symptoms. These effects are temporary and should disappear soon after
exposure to an irritating vapor ends.
Chronic bronchitis can result from
repeated exposure to irritant chemicals. Symptoms of this condition
include lung congestion, cough with phlegm, difficulty in breathing,
and greater susceptibility to respiratory infections.
Repeated exposure to certain chemicals
found in some artificial nail products can cause allergic reactions in
the respiratory tract. One type of allergy mainly affects the nose and
throat, causing sneezing and other symptoms similar to hay fever.
Another type of allergic reaction affects the lungs, causing asthma.
Symptoms of asthma include difficulty breathing, wheezing, coughing,
shortness of breath, and tightness in the chest. Once you have become
sensitized to a chemical, very small amounts of that chemical can
cause an allergic reaction.
Exposure to irritant chemicals that
would not affect most people can provoke an asthma attack in a person
who already has asthma.
Methyl methacrylate dust can cause
asthma. All of the other acrylates (methacrylates and methacrylic
acid) and ethyl cyanoacrylates can cause asthma.
Breathing in the vapors of certain
chemicals can affect your brain the same way as drinking too much
alcohol does. The technical term for this intoxication is central
nervous system (CNS) depression. Overexposure to these vapors can
cause headaches, nausea, and dizziness as well as making you feel
irritable, confused, or drunk. These feelings should go away soon
after you stop working with the chemicals.
Many of the chemicals which cause these
effects are organic solvents. Some organic solvents often found in
nail products are methyl ethyl ketone, acetone, toluene, xylene, and
ethyl ether. Large amounts of vapors from the methacrylates can also
cause the same problems. (There are no solvents in Miracle Glue.)
