The Myth: Gel manicures can cause cancer.
True! Or, at least, studies currently show that gel manicures increase the risk of cancer. Why? It’s all because of the UV light used to cure the polish; even worse, some salons use UV lights to speed up the drying time of normal polishes, so you should watch out even if you’re getting a regular manicure. There are already reported cases of women who have gotten skin cancer on the backs of their hand, so it’s up to you whether chip-free polish is worth it. Just make sure you know the risks!
