Nail Problems Board Index

All artificial nail products are made from acrylates and include traditional acrylic, gel acrylic, wrap resins and nail glue, including all types of instant glues. Repeated and prolonged skin exposure WILL cause allergic reaction and once we are allergic,we are allergic for life. Gluing a tip onto the skin is skin exposure. Glues are not moisture resistant and can leave tiny little 'spider' veins where it did not completely create an air-tight seal. Bacteria and fungal spores can easily enter into these tiny spaces, set up housekeeping and turn into a full blown infection. I AM a nail tech and have been for over 35 years. I am an educator and one of the top techs in the nation. I am only saying that you shouldn't advise someone to glue tips to their damaged nail/skin. Just because you didn't experience a reaction doesn't mean the next person won't. Products carry a warning for a reason and just because some people refuse to follow the warnings doesn't mean you should advise others to do the same. I have a whole page on my website devoted to allergic reaction from skin exposure, so enough said.
