Nail Care & Manicures/Brownish tips on gel nails
For several months now, my gel nail tips start turning grey or dark brown. It's definitely in the top coat only. And it happens gradually, a little bit more every day until by the end of two weeks it covers almost the entire nail. I don't know if it's lotion or some chemical like hair spray and I can't figure it out. I read it might be dye in my clothes, but I find that hard to believe. It's a good salon and my nail tech says she has never seen it before. Do you have any idea what is causing this? It's making me crazy!
I totally agree with the thought that it is dye from clothing! Black slacks and dark jeans tend to be the culprit. But if you did acrylics instead and they used a UV gel topcoat (OPI Axxium is my fave), then it may solve the issue. Or, ask them to experiment with some different top coats.
I hope I've answered your question, but if I didn't, write me back : )
