Will gel manicures give me skin cancer?

Gel is all the rage because it lasts so much longer than normal manicures but I have been hearing some buzz recently about gel causing skin cancer due to the UV light process.

Hey Susan,

This response helps a lot! I love gel manicures, but was worried the UV rays could have some bad health effects. That's a great idea to put on some sunscreen. I'll have to try that before my next manicure!
