I only had a manicure once which was a year ago, they put on a gel thing and three days later my natural nail on my left pinky came mostly off and almost had it removed from the infection, it was cheap as it was the grand opening of the salon. Just rewarding the article, with the exception of the uv light, these are all things that are also applicable to acrylic manicures so to limit this to gel is misleading as it makes one think that acrylic nails are better. Yes they did nothing I got afraid to get mine yesterday because of that post I have them now and nothing happened.
I don’t understand what happened to that ladies nails but im 45 yrs old and have been getting my nails done every 2 weeks since i was 15 and I had every kind of nails known to man and have never had 1 thing wrong except the lady doing my nails cut my cuticle and i bled a little. I am a nail technician, the picture you have above is not even of a gel manicure it looks like a full set of acrylic or gel fake nails not a gel manicure, people are different a can have different reactions to different products I have never seen anyone react like that to gel nail polish before or a uv light. I am also a Nail Tech, the photo is from MMA Acrylics I’ve seen the source photo before. Yes the UV Exposure can cause cancer, however the amount of UV Exposure from a Gel Mani is minimal there have been studies that show it would take well over 100 manicures to equal walking out your door to your car. Two Acetone is an irritant and when proper soaking is performed it has limited contact and again minimal damage. Thinning etc comes from NSS Salons over filing the natural nail each service, again something the professionals do not do and would not occur. Any covering can mask issues, though if you are getting them changed as you should every 2-3 weeks any professional nail tech would see any possible issues and refer them to a doctor. Perhaps you should write an article about picking a safe salon that uses high quality product and clean implements.
I’ve been getting gel nails for about two months and was so excited that my nails were all growing to the same long length. Please, did you see a Dr or anyone to confirm your discomfort was due specifically to the gel polish?
Thanks Sam, the photo is credited at the end of the story and the four reasons listed are from the American Academy of Dermatology.
If you get any kind of irritaition or redness, pain or whatever, I think you should stop what you doing and go to another nailstechnition. I was a cosmetologist when acrylic nails were the big thing, and when old-school gel nails (no light curing) were a thing. I would be interested in finding out the difference in the hazzard of Gel nails versus Acrylic.
The Kate Moss lipsticks by Rimmel have been out for a little while now, but up until recently none of the colours really grabbed me. The other day I had the urge to use a gel eyeliner, but when I found mine from the bottom of my make-up box it was all dried up.
There is the added worry that the machines aren't regulated, meaning consumers don't know how much exposure they are getting to the rays.It follows a study in 2009 that found two middle-aged women developed tumours on their hands following exposure to UV nail lights.
He referred to one study that found nail plates were measurably thinner after just one treatment.

Look for “big four free” polish like SpaRitual or even try out a water-based brand like Scotch Naturals. Been scared of getting my nails done since (including normal nail polish) but I’m going to get them done again but from a different place in my own state near my house.
I prefer my own natural nails, as these manicures make my nails feel thick and my nails grow so fast I’d be getting fill ins every week and a half versus 2-3 weeks.
I would also like to say that that looks like an infection most likely from improper cleaning of nail tools, you should really do some more research before posting stuff like this. Regardless of the photo, I believe that concerns about gel manicures raised by the American Academy of Dermatologists are valid–and alarming.
Many techs as is the case with myself are starting to apply extra base coats and buffing the color off to that base (never touching the natural nail). Here are a few of my favorite clean and green polish brands: Priti NYC, Zoya, Ginger + Liz, Scotch (no odor!!), and LVX (which is 5-free, not 3-free).
Gel nails are safe and healthy if applied properly and uv lamps in salons are not strong enough to cause cancer !
I see that you love your gel ?? Just remember that there are pretty toxic chemicals making that polish stick to your nails. I changed from Acrylic to Gel because I had heard they are better for you and they last longer. I haven’t done a comparison, but I know that both involve some pretty heavy chemicals.
I love a good buff myself ?? Luckily, many polishes today don’t contain the formaldehyde that turns your nails yellow. And #3 it does not make mails weak and tlle, some places use a dremil drill to apply which is not needed yes that will make them weak…and if removed correctly and not picked or peeled off it will cause no harm. While I love the look of it, and that it is so long lasting, the fact is I'm a bit scared of the damage the UV light, which is needed to cure it, may do to my own natural nails.
Here is how Soft Pink looks on my nails on Day 1, Day 7 then Day 10 at which point I couldn't stand the chipping and removed it promptly.
Neither had a family history of skin cancer and both worked indoors and had moderate exposure to sunlight, according to the research published in JAMA Dermatology.Dr Adigun feels so strongly about the dangers that he says women should only gel nails for special occasions to 'decrease the consequences of chemical trauma'. But he added it was unclear whether brittleness is caused by chemicals in the gel polish or from the acetone used to remove it. Once your order is shipped, you will be emailed the tracking information for your order’s shipment. It cures with sunlight (hence the wrapped bottle), so no UV needed, and comes off with regular remover.

It would have been smart to do so before I got them to not be affected by this thank you so much! You are trying to sell your product and it should not have anything to do with this picture.
1, I never soak it off because, right I would not like to stick my hnds into any kind of chemicals. You might want to try going natural for a while, or trying a water-based polish–I love Scotch Naturals, the colors are so pretty! We have clients who have been doing this product for 3 years and still have beautiful natural nails. You can choose your preferred shipping method on the Order Information page during the checkout process. I looked at the nails on this picture and these nails weren’t done by a professional. The wear time was fairly similar to standard nail polishes, and I can't say they were shinier than normal either.
This is a transparent snowflakes nail glue, you can use it with different colors nail gel to create different effect. Yes soaking them in the acetone to remove them did a number on my nails but it was literally the same effect of washing dishes without gloves. Anyone can have a reaction in a salon, from beauty products, hair products and nail products. That is why most people find that once they get a coating like that on their nails (originally used to add length, with or without a nail tip glued on, now with added color for a mani that won’t quit), they have to keep getting it or the nails left when it is taken off are weak, paper thin, damaged. So while these aren't exactly bad nail polishes, they won't give you the long lasting effect of a traditional gel nail polish. Take a look and if you find a more natural gel manicure that works for you, please leave me a comment so I can check it out. That being said, I got curious and discovered a gel nail color that does not require a light to cure, and decided to try it. Anyway, while the risks may real or concerns may be valid, the article again almost assumes that gel manicures are worse than anything other than varnish on a natural nail.
But for you to say that gel nails can cause this type of reaction, you scare me, and so does your product! This system cures by a chemical reaction between the clear coat (something of a glorified nail glue) and the color coat.
It went on easily, looked identical to regular nail polish but was tougher and dried pretty much immediately.
I used acetone to remove them, because regular nail polish remover, while effective, took FOREVER (tried it on one nail). Even though I didn’t file my nail surfaces and was as gentle with my nails as I usually am, there was definitely some damage to my nails.
