Hi! I was wondering if anyone knows if the new gel nail polish in nail salons has ever caused a reaction to some one with a latex allergy. Appreciate the help. Thanks!

Hi.!
No. if you are allergy to latex it means you are allergy in paint. gel nail polish is a GEL, it's harm less.

There are a lot of reports and web information indicating that the new gels do cause reactions in some people. Try to read reports from responsible sites, not individual anecdotes. www.huffingtonpost.com/dr-susan-taylor/gel-nail-polish_b_1333236.html

I wouldn't get gel polish if I had my nails done often, but once in a while might be OK. I don't get my nails done unless I have to go to a special event.

Its not so much an allergic reaction, but a contaiment. The best thing is to get a face mask when you get your nails done because of the airborn particules that get in the air from dirty nails...you can pick up germs and inhale it at nail salons.
You could probably have a allergic response, especially to those glued on nails. As glued on nails are toxic...
If you go get your nails done maybe go to a place where you can get a private room or go when its the least busy.
Every once in awhile I go and get my nails groomed and only a clear coat finish...But the night before I go I clean my nails and then I use a epson salt, bleach, hot water soak for 5 minutes, this helps to prevent nail bed infections.
