At Lauren B. Beauty, we take nail health seriously. With years of research, development, and firsthand experience in nail care, we're equipped to address a frequent question we encounter: "Do gel nail wraps damage nails?"

Healthy Nails


  1. Composition:

The composition of the gel nail wrap plays a significant role in its impact on nails. High-quality gel nail wraps, like those we produce, are made to adhere smoothly without causing nail strain. They're also designed to avoid the use of harmful chemicals, ensuring no adverse effects on the nail bed.

  1. Removal:

Most damage, if any, often occurs during the removal process. According to a study in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology, improper removal can lead to nail thinning. However, by using proper techniques, like soaking and gentle pushing instead of peeling or scraping, one can ensure minimal nail damage.

  1. Breathability:

The health of the nail depends on its ability to breathe. Our gel nail wraps are developed keeping this in mind. They're designed to be semi-permeable, allowing essential moisture exchange.
