Getting your nails done is a great reason to worry about Cancer. Especially since Gel polish is the current rage, supposedly offering the long wear of acrylic nails without the accompanying nail damage. Gel polishes are popular because the coating is thinner and looks more natural, there’s no dry-time or smudging, and the nails stay shiny and chip-resistant for weeks. This seems like the ultimate nail dream for salon-goers. If this sounds almost too good to be true, though, it may be – because this latest beauty treatment carries with it a number of potential health risks.
First, these “no-chip” nails are actually a form of artificial nails, so the same chemicals used in acrylic nails are also used in gel polishes. Of great concern are the acrylates, which are individual chemical molecules (or monomers) that bind together (in a process called polymerization) to form plastic materials. Acrylates can cause allergic and irritant reactions. Contact dermatitis, which includes skin itching, burning, scaling, hives, blistering, and even eczema, has been shown to be associated with these compounds in salon workers as well as salon customers. So if customers and salon workers have had problems with acrylic nails, they will also have problems with gel polishes.
“I went to the hospital, and I told him, ‘I’m a manicurist,’” said the woman, who declined to give her name because she wanted her medical history to remain private. Her doctor urged her to change jobs. “The chemicals are not healthy for your lungs, your liver, and sometimes they begin cancer,” she recalled. “I was laughing. I said, ‘Who is going to pay my bills?’” She has since miscarried twice more.
“It’s a beautiful industry, it makes people feel better,” Ms. Colon, who owned the salon in Mill Basin, said in an interview, a faint wheeze just audible behind her ready laugh. “But if a lot of people knew the truth behind it, it wouldn’t happen. They wouldn’t go.”
Some ingredients used in nail products have been tied to cancer, miscarriages, lung diseases and other ailments. The industry has long fought regulations.
