Hi,
I know some techs who have allergy problems.
They wear thin latex gloves to work in :) Not for everyone, but if get real bad reaction, Its better than giving up nails. :)

I would not advise wearing Latex.

The reason being is that Latex is a natural substance and as such, is far more likely to cause an adverse reaction when compared to a synthetic material.
Something like 50% of people are naturally allergic to latex! For those that arent, they soon will be using Latex gloves and monomer. That is because monomer breaks down the Latex protein and carries it into the skin, making a reaction occur much faster.

I have sourced some gloves in the UK that Designer Nails is now stocking which would be your best bet, they are made from a material called Nitrile. They are the same type of gloves that Dr's use whilst slicing and dicing people.

Anyhooo... thats your best bet IMO ;)

this isnt a cnd site, but you can get the gloves from Designer Nails at 01132755719. You dont need training from CND to buy the gloves. Make sure you ask for Nitrile ;)
