Masquerade is an EMA Monomer that works like an MMA Monomer. Masquerade is unlike other EMA monomers, in that it adheres to the nail better, is easier to shape with a nail file, and is harder to the touch.
Why not use an MMA Monomer?
In 32 out of 50 US States, the usage of MMA Monomers is illegal, and is not recommended by the FDA to be used in nail products. Instead, the FDA recommends the usage of EMA Monomers. Many studies have proven that MMA monomer is damaging to nail bed and results of these studies have caused the FDA and many States to ban the usage of MMA monomer in the nail industry.
