I've just looked at a tuturial on another site, which shows a gel sculpt on bitten nails, now I was taught not to get product onto the skin, but this clearly states that after 1 thin coat, apply a second coat allowing a small amount to overlap onto the skin [which comes away after curing].Then to place the form & sculpt as normal. Is this correct?

Hello all,

Here is my theory.....
I have been doing gels for about 8 years and never had any allergy problems.
I agree not to leave uncured gel on the skin.

Bitten nails are difficult to do. Often tips don't fit propely. Even when you glue the tips on you will get some adhesive on the skin.

I apply pretty thin layer of coverage pink gel on the skin (1/8- 1/16 wide) and CURE it. So there is uncured gel on the skin for a minute or 2. Then it cures well because the layer is not too thick and it cures all the way through.
When you look at biters nails (the skin around it) you'll see that it is very calloused, so you are not suppose to smear the gel all over the peoples fingers (good skin), just to apply a tiny line to fit the form under.

I really have much more luck in a long run with this methos then with tips.
No cracking of the tips, no pressure on the nailbed from poorly fitted tips.

Only UNCURED gel on the skin will/can create problems..so I always remove the dispersion very well ( i wipe the nails twice).

I really haven't had any problems with allergy so far.....

Remember that clients do not beome allergic to a chemical overnight!

It can take many months or even years of bad practices ie repeated exposure to the skin before the trouble starts.

Certain chemicals in products (not the product itself) are known allergens and repeated exposure may lead to allergic reaction eventually.

Be cautious in the use of this technique and you will hopefully be OK. I presume one is not applying uncured product to the skin each and every visit to the salon. ?¿?¿?¿

Well, exactly! They have it done once and then they can maintain the nails.
So the product is applied on the skin once and for 2 minutes and then cured
