Gel manicures are great because they last longer than a regular manicure, making it more cost efficient than getting multiple regular manicures. But you should not get gel manicures every time you go to the salon. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, gel manicures can be bad for your health because you are exposed to UV rays. Also, you might not need to get a gel pedicure, since your feet experience less regular wear and tear than your hands. An exception is if you are regularly swimming in chlorinated or salt water. What can you do if you want long lasting color more often? You can replace gel or acrylic nails with stick-on nail color.
