Gel Manicure Smarts

Gel Manicures can expose hands to increased amounts of UV light. Be safe; wear sunscreen or gloves.I am a huge fan of gel manicures - no chips and extra shine, sold! However, along with the gel process comes extra exposure to the UV lights (up to eight minutes). To prevent any potential negative impact from these lights, be sure to apply sunscreen on the hands prior to exposure or use white anti UV gloves to cover hands, leaving just your fingertips exposed.
