Do you love a nice long-lasting mani, but want to know how you can protect your skin from gel manicures? Believe me...I understand. I always feel more polished when my nails are done. That being said, I always seem to chip a regular mani within the first few days, so I love how you can get a gel manicure and not think about your nails for a couple weeks. On the other side of the coin, I don't love that your skin can be damaged from the UV light exposure.

How to Protect Your Skin from Gel Manicures

So, I decided to take a break from gel manicures and actually haven't had one in months. That was until this weekend. I got my nails painted a festive orangey red for summer and there isn't a chip in sight. The reason I felt comfortable getting a gel manicure again, and you might too, is because I found a way to protect your skin from gel manicures.
