Is pregnancy a contraindication to gel manicure?
During gel manicure a light-curing gel layer is applied to properly prepared nail plate. Then, it is hardened under a UV lamp. Described process is safe. However, degreasing beauty products may contain acetone that is harmful. While considering setting up an appointment, it is advised to check whether procedure is carried out in adequately ventilated room.
