Why does the acrylic get hot sometimes, causing my client’s finger to burn?

Q.

When I am applying an acrylic full set on a client, why does the acrylic get hot sometimes, causing my client’s finger to burn? Once I spray it with water or alcohol it cools off instantly.

A.

This can happen for two reasons:
1. Applying your product on top of wet primer with too much monomer can make a chemical reaction take place.
2. A very thin nail plate, where the primer has not completely dried can react with the monomer to cause a heat reaction.
