Are Gel Nails Harmful and Detrimental to Nail Heath?
Gel nails became popular in the ’80s and have since then remained one of the most commonly worn nail art styles. However, in recent years, many women have raised concerns about their nails getting brittle and easily chipped among other gel nails problems.
- Experts have started recommending soft gels over the hard gels to those who are concerned about how this particular form of nail art may affect them. That is because soft gels can be removed by soaking the nails in acetone, as opposed to the vigorous scrubbing required for removing hard gels.
- Another trick is to use fingertip-less gloves and open toe socks while setting the gel using UV. While this limited exposure to UV is not enough to cause skin cancer, as many fear, wearing a cover on the skin helps to protect against the skin aging properties of UV rays.
