ManiGlovz UV Protective Gloves To Wear During Gel Manicures

Mani Glovz Smooches

ManiGlovz are UV Protective Manicure and Sunblock Gloves that are made here in the USA.

UV rays have been known to cause cancer when they are exposed to over periods of time.  I was recently getting my hair cut and my beautician was telling me of a girl she knew that developed skin cancer from getting gel manicures.  I had to ask her to repeat what she just said because I had never heard of that happening before.  It took me by surprise and gave me a bit of a scare because I like to get gel manicures. When I was asked to review ManiGlovz I was extremely interested because of this reason.

There is a  study in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology that found that while the UV exposure from UV lamps in nail salons that are used in gel manicures is low, in less than 10 minutes, a person’s hands receive an energy dose equivalent to the day long recommended limit for outdoor workers. The UV exposures also create the potential for accelerated photo-aging, or premature aging of the skin.

ManiGlovz were developed to be worn while receiving gel manicures to help protect hands from the UV light exposure. The gloves are lightweight and very comfortable.  They are made with pretty designs.  I received the pattern called "Smooches".  They are so cute and covered in pretty colored kisses.  I will definitely be wearing these every single time I get a gel manicure, for peace of mind.

Disclosure:  I received a pair of ManiGlovz to review for my honest opinion.


  1. These are so cute and such a good idea. I only recently became aware of how dangerous those little lights can be.
