We all know UV lights are safe, but what about those clients who aren’t so sure? If one of your clients is shying away from gel-polish services out of concern that the nail lamp may increase the risk of skin cancer, you can put her at ease.
Invented by a salon client who was concerned not about cancer, but about developing sunspots, the Youveeshield blocks 99.9% of the UV light. Easy to use and disposable, it provides slits to place your fingers in that expose your nails, and the nature of the material allows it to grip your finger right under the cuticle, says Renee Albera, president and founder of Youveeshield.
“Each shield is interchangeable, fitting on either the right or left hand or foot, simply by turning it over,” she says. “It is dispensed out of a tissue-style box and at approximately 50 cents per shield, it’s an inexpensive item that provides clients with peace of mind.”
If you’re looking for a solution with a bit of style, take a look at GlamUP Gloves. Developed by celebrity designer/stylist Sterling Capricio, these tipless gloves feature fashion trends including animal prints, hot pops of colors, and abstract patterns.
