Today is the perfect day to start taking better care of your nails! It might sound hard, but fear not! Even if you’re not ready to go completely natural you can take small steps that will lead to a stronger, healthier nail.
Did you know that when you use UV gel polishes, such as Shellac or Gelish, the UV light used to cure, or harden, the polish is similar to the one used in tanning beds? This means that, although it’s not guaranteed that you will get skin cancer, using the UV lights on your hands carry the same risks as the tanning beds. Don’t let that cramp your style though! Top brands such as Sally Hansen and CoverGirl are coming out with products called “at-home gel manicures” which provide a long-lasting manicure without the use of UV lights. And for those who just can’t quit the UV polish, make sure you apply a liberal amount of sunscreen to your hands before your service!
