Who doesn’t love a gel manicure? Regular polish that chips as you are leaving the salon just doesn’t cut it anymore. However, with gels comes the UV light used to cure the polish. Enter ManiGlovz, the brainchild of Westchester resident and mother of three Kim Motola. She thought that if she’s so obsessive with sunscreen on her body when she’s out by the pool, why neglect her hands? ManiGlovz are made using UV 50+ Protective Compression Tricot and come in a variety of bright and fun patterns. They can be hand-washed and stretch, so you can easily remove them after the gel cures.

The research on the harmful effects of UV rays on your hands for a short amount of time a month vary, but we say better safe than sorry. If anything, you’ll look cute for your next nail appointment, and you can hold on to them for your next ’80s party!

ManiGlovz are available for $25 at select retailers and online at ManiGlovz.com
