Allergies to nail products are becoming more and more these days.

Mainly because some nail techs may not understand the importance of not getting products on the skin – that is the clients skin or your own skin.

Keep tops on nail products to avoid vapours and spillages.

Rinse hands regularly after each client to avoid nail filing dust on the skin as this can irritate and potentially cause dermatitis.

many nail technicians are now wearing nitrile gloves but these must be 19mm thick and disposed of after each client.

Do not clean up around the nail with acrylic wet brush or with fingers.

Use an orange wood stick to clean off any product.

Clean up nail dust after each client to protect your breathing zone.

Have covered bins to help avoid acrylic vapours.
