Hi all, I did a clients colour last week and that evening had a really itchy face (red and raised bumps) I took a piriton, washed in aqueous cream and it was mostly itch free by the morning. I can't think of anything else that I touched or came into contact with? I'm just doing a skin test on myself now (inside elbow) the test looks fine so far but i do feel a faint tingling on my face. Has anyone else experienced this and if the skin test is fine shall I just carry on colouring? I have a client booked in Friday. any advice?:irked:

Please be very careful! Wear gloves when preparing, using and rinsing the tint.

It might have been just 'one of those things' but take care and have some anti-hystamines handy.

My allergy to Gel nails developed quite quickly to the point that if I breathe in the dust, my eyes lids will swell etc. Quite scary.
