Good news everyone: it turns out that those UV lamps that Nail Salons use to set in your gel nail polish aren’t as bad as everyone has been making them out to be.

Researchers have found during a new study that the UV lamps do not in fact cause skin cancer of the top of your hands. Scientists originally thought that the UV lamps could cause the tops of your hands to develop skin cancer over time, but it turns out that that has never been proven.

This study has discovered that the nail salon UV lamps do not release a harmful amount of UV rays and are in no way similar to a tanning bed. You would have to have 13,000 to 40,000 nail-drying sessions or 250 years of weekly manicures to even come close to obtaining skin cancer from these UV lamps.

Huge relief.
