Hi mal- Good question. I don't know about acrylic nails but I do know that all the OPI naiil polishes (not the clear nail strengtheners- just the colors) are gluten-free.

I know I know, me too (Nail Envy). It wasn't the last time I checked, but maybe it's changed. You could contact the company and see what they say. I know their colored ones are, but as of a year ago, Nail Envy was not. :angry:

I don't know if you found your answer yet. First my suggestion is to call the salon you usually get your nails done at and ask what acrylic they use. OPI, Creative, and there's more but my mind is in a fog right now. Also be aware if you do go to a TOTAL asian salon they tend to just say 'we use the good stuff'. I just called my representative that i get my nail supplies from about OPI and I'm waiting to hear back from her.
