Gel Safety List

Gel is a wonderful product to use for those gorgeous mani’s but if not used correctly it can cause contact dermatitis. 

We will keep adding to the list  

Here are important things to be aware of 

1. Uv/led lamp needs to be at min 48 watts and a small flash cure lamp is meant to flash cure ONLY! You still use the big lamp to cure. 

2. Uncured products.- If for any reason your gel is not cured you need to get it off your nails immediately. Some things you might see is that your gel is bubbling up. 

3. HEMA Ingredient is not necessary bad. What’s bad is when it the first or 2nd ingredients because that means it high in hena. If exposed to the skin at all can cause overexposure. This is very bad. Do not trust just because it’s advertised as healthy or Hema free that it is. We are constantly running across customers bringing false marketing. 

Great YouTube to educate

Look for these other ingredients for Hema. It is actually known by a few different names as well:Hydroxyethylmethacrylate, Hema, 2-Hydroxyethyl methacrylate.

In the nail industry, HEMA- Hydroxyl Ethyl Methacrylaty, it is considered an additive to the nail products. Its adhesive qualities allow gels and polishes to stick better to the nail and last longer.
