What The Gel Is Right
Fingerless Gloves JUst Don't Cut it!
STAY AGELESS. LOOK FLAWLESS.
Renee Albera got her first gel manicure in 2012, and loved it. It was long lasting (two weeks) and dried instantly - heaven! However, one day she noticed sunspots all over her hands. Then she learned the lamps used to cure the gel emit UVA light and each gel manicure was equivalent to being in the direct sun for approximately 20 to 40 minutes unprotected. Now what?
Loving gel manicures, she tried to think of ways to protect her skin and despite looking for available solutions to the UVA exposure (sunscreen, fingerless gloves), nothing adequate currently existed in the marketplace that provided the necessary protection.
Determined to make gel manicures safer, she started her research, hired an engineer from Silicon Valley to create a shield that covered the skin on the top of the hand, as well as a portion of the wrist. In 2014, YouVeeShield was born.
