Hi im fed up this morning again,its partly my fault aswell,but i did a set of nails last night as a favour they were just french white tips and gel overlay with nail art for xmas party tonight.
Anyway as mentioned before iv got dogy skin,i bought one of the fan extractors that sit on ya desk then put ya hand over it from ebay £20,but it makes it a little high for me to work on so i didnt use it last night {forgot as havnt done a set for months now:sad:.
I dont know wether it is the products im using or the filing dust,i would say the dust,im only trained in gel/silk aswell so now im thinking of giving up nails and just doing mani/pedi and beauty as this is doing my head in every time i do nails.When iv done pedis and they have there colour on then i gel overlay i dont get it so i think its not the products,so do you think its the dust from filing the plastic tips as i know it goes everywhere.
Can acrylic do the same as i dont know nothing about acrylic,wanted a course on it but my college dosnt do it,any advice would be great thanks xx

I have the same problem, Its overexposure to either the liquid or dust from the L&P.
I now use a tubi grip over the hand that get affected and it seems to do the trick. I cant work wearing rubber gloves and find the tubi grip to be excellent at stopping the dust from settling on my skin and my fingers are still free to do all I need to do to complete the service.

It is easily done to touch your face when you have dust on your hands or even product. When your starting with L & P or anything your concentrating so hard and ensuring nothing gets onto the clients skin it is easy to swipe the brush on one of your own fingers. Dust is the worse offender try and wash your hands before touching your face and see if that helps :) Good luck x
