St. Patrick’s Day Nails and Gel Manicure Issues Solved

Celebrate this March 17 with St. Patrick’s Day nails as we solve a recent gel manicure issue. Even though green is the color of the day; the options are many when it comes to St. Patrick’s Day Nails.

Whoop, whoop, it’s Hump Day and that time of the week for another of Ask the Pro Stylist’s Q&A. This Wednesday is a follow-up from Clare’s gel manicure issue from last week, which prompted the photo of my St. Patrick’s Day nails. The reader from across the pond responded to the blog post with the following:

Thanks for your help! Turns out it’s an allergy to methacrylate, which seems to be in every single gel polish out there. A sad day for me, but back to Essie ‘normal’ polishes I guess. I’m going to try their Gel Setter topcoat as I’ve read it has a nice gel-like plumping effect!

Thanks again, your blog is fab!

Methacrylate is found in the materials that make up artificial nails. If you suspect you have an allergy due to a gel manicure or acrylic nails, contact your doctor immediately.

Back to St. Patrick’s Day. My nails are silk wrap tips with a light green gel nail polish and sparkly green accent nails. For more St. Patrick’s Day nails with shamrocks and more, be sure to visit my Pinterest page, linked above.

If you have a question for me similar to Clare’s gel allergy query, please email me at Until then, happy styling and enjoy your St. Patrick’s Day nails!
