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.

Enter Maniglovz...After your manicure is done, before your nail tech starts painting your nails, you can slip on these handy dandy gloves. Let's think about it this way. Most of don't visit tanning salons anymore. We know what they do to our skin. And we're diligent about applying sunscreen daily. So, why would we let our hands go unprotected? Well, we don't have to choose between those lovely long-lasting manis that we miss and skin damage. Thanks to Maniglovz we can protect our skin and rock fresh nails!
