Who hasn't tried and practically fell in love with the gel manicure? We can remember the first time we only had to sit at the dryer for 5 minutes, and were mesmerized by how fast and convenient the process was!

But nail junkies everywhere might wanna pump the brakes when they read this one.

A report from the Dermatology Journal of the American Medical Association revealed that the ultra violet light used in nail salons could be harming us more than it is drying our nails. The study goes on to say that in just 24 trips to get a UV gel manicure, only two-dozen trips, can possibly trigger cancer -causing DNA damage to cells. And not only is the UV light a danger, the actual polish can pose a threat too.
