To each his own, I guess, regarding the acrylics. I get a great tone and volume and durability with them. Nothing compares to the durability. I did look at various material handling lists for the acrylic dip gel base and it does have CA listed as part of the ingredients. So Dave is correct about that, but my experience having used straight CA glue with various things like silk wraps (like James Taylor does on a youtube video) or tea bags, etc. is that it's nasty stuff that can really make your eyes water. The older kind of acrylic where you dip a brush in the liquid and grab a bead of powder and squish it down is great and very durable but the smell is nasty while it's being done. The smell is gone once it cures. The dip acrylic, even though it uses some CA glue too as part of its base, is advertised as scentless and imo it's pretty good. So, for acrylics, it seems like the best choice because it doesn't smell, and it can go on thinner and more evenly and DIY is possible.
