Is L&P more dangerous than gel


Can you explain why L&P is not more dangerous than gel? Even with the strong odour?


Firstly, just to be very clear, NO nail product is dangerous unless used incorrectly.

L&P and UV gel are the same but different. They are both acrylates just formulated differently.

L&P is designed to be stronger and UV gel is more flexible. The monomer in L&P is a volatile product so evaporates in the air (hence the smell) but it isn’t dangerous. The same chemicals are already in the gel so not volatile.
