Do you know what the chemicals in acrylic and gel polish are doing to your nails?

You could be allergic to gel polish or acrylics and not even know it.

Turns out the chemicals used in acrylic and gel nails are causing an allergy epidemic, according to Charity British Association of Dermatologists (BAD).

gel nails

About 2.4% of women are allergic to chemicals, known as methacrylates.

BAD warns they are found in such nail enhancements, which can cause their nails to loosen or their skin to develop a severe, itchy rash.

Even more, such can spread to wherever the nails comes into contact with, which may include a person’s eyelids, face and even their genitals.

gel nails2

In extreme cases, hand swelling and breathing difficulties could also occur.

Previous research suggests 93% of reactions to methacrylates occur in females.

Reactions are worse when people use at-home kits.
gel nails8
BAD adds even professionally applied acrylic and gel nails can cause reactions if technicians are poorly trained.
gel nails7
Methacrylates are not routinely included in allergy patch tests and therefore the number of people who react to such chemicals is thought to be vastly underestimated.

A Dr David Orton from BAD said:

‘It is really important that people know they can develop allergies from artificial nails.’

Ladies, Here’s Why You Should Go Slow On That GEL POLISH And Manicure, It Could Put You In Danger

In an audit of 13 UK and Irish dermatology clinics in 2017, 4,931 patients were tested for methacrylate allergies, of which up to 2.4%suffered a reaction.

Of those who reacted;

60% developed their allergy through ‘recreational exposure’ while having the nail enhancements fitted.

33% of the cases, allergies occurred in nail technicians while working.

gel nails9

Remainder of cases, took place due to methacrylate exposure where the chemicals are also used, according to Daily Mail.

On the other hand, BAD analysed 742 people visiting dermatology clinics.

Results suggest that 19% of people experience side effects from acrylic nails applied in salons while 165 suffer adverse events from gel polish nails.

Complications include; nail damage and allergic dermatitis, such as itching and swelling of the eyelids, cheeks and neck.

‘My violent ex-boyfriend strangled me and called my mother to listen to my cry for help before throwing me over the balcony’ City woman narrates

The latest case of an Eldoret man Naftali Lusuli beating his pregnant wife has elicited an online debate on how long one should stay in an abusive marriage.

The woman, who was identified as Valerie Masibo suffered serious face and body injuries, admitted that this is the fifth time that the man she claims to love has beaten her despite being together for only five months.

During the Morning show on Classic 105, Maina Kageni gave his fans a chance to contribute to the debate on what ‘abusive partners tell their spouses to make them stick in abusive marriages or relationships.


‘He should be beaten to a pulp’ Flashy lawyer Don Kipkors comments after Eldoret man disfigured pregnant wife over Ksh500

One female caller shocked many after narrating how an ex boyfriend once strangled her and threw her off the balcony,

“I had this guy and he was very abusive ,one day he broke into my house strangled me into unconsciousness and threw me over the balcony and despite the fact that it was only first floor it was a bit high up.

My neighbours came to my rescue and took me to the hospital ,my parents came we went to the police, and before this he had abused me several times and used to blame it on him being high on alcohol so i used to forgive him.

As a woman you just forgive and forget,he also steal things such as electronics from my house and sell them despite being from a very wealthy background.”

Man who viciously beat up his pregnant wife in Eldoret to be arraigned in court

She goes on to narrate all the mean things the man put her through

“It reached a point where he started stealing money from my ATM,prior to the strangling incident he had stolen our gas cylinder.

He came into the house through the balcony at 5am and that’s when he started strangling me and despite my efforts to fight back i couldn’t because he was well built and he was also drunk.”


How to recognize a potentially physically abusive partner

Well if you think that is the worst part then you are wrong as the man called the ladies parents while still strangling her,

“He called my mum while strangling me and told my mum that my cry for help would be the last thing she would here from me.

He threw my phone into the aquarium so that i don’t ask for help, he then threw me over the balcony and when i gained consciousness i was in a hospital bed.My moment of reckoning came after a police officer told me that if i don’t leave that guy i might end up dead.”

Despite the trauma she found it hard to send him to jail, but she is glad that she finally moved on.

She concludes

“We agreed between the two families that he would go for rehab to avoid going to jail,deep in my heart i did not want him to go to jail since i still loved him.

Even after rehab it was not easy letting go as he would call and text saying how much he loved me despite me telling him that i don’t want to see himIt is very dangerous and i regret it,It was the hardest time of my life.”

Fast and Furious actor Tyrese Gibson going through financial challenges and can’t afford to maintain his lifestyle

Tyrese Gibson’s much documented money problems appear to have gotten worse after his financial records proved that he is struggling financially.

The model turned actor responded to his ex-wife Norma Gibson’s request for him to pay for her divorce attorney.

According to his financial records obtained by TMZ, not only can’t he afford to pay for her legal fees, he also can’t afford to keep up his lifestyle.

Tyrese and his ex-wife Norma Gibson’s

Those records show The Fast & Furious star spends about $114,000 a month on bills that includes: his mortgage, utilities, child care and groceries. Add another $10,000 a month in child support payments to his estranged wife and that brings the monthly total to $124,000.

Currently he brings in about $51,000 a month, which translates to a $73,000 a month deficit.

Things have reportedly gotten so bad the 39-year old’s savings account has withered down from $800,000 in cash to $130,000 over the last nine months.

Tyrese has cast blame on his ex for his recent money problems — maintaining that the bad press that he got after she accused him of domestic violence last year made it difficult for him to land more movie rolls.


The former couple have been engaged in a bitter custody battle over their 11-year old daughter Shayla. At one point, Norma requested a restraining order against Tyrese, who she claimed allegedly beat their daughter. A judge ultimately denied the request, claiming there wasn’t an ongoing pattern of harassment against Norma or their daughter.

The former couple currently have shared custody, but Tyrese wants Shayla to live with him at his Atlanta mansion rather than remain with her mother in Los Angeles.

Last year, the LA native tied the knot with New Jersey-born Samantha Lee and they announced in April that they are expecting a baby together. The baby girl is due in September.

Tyrese has been a part of a number of blockbuster films that includes: roles in five of the Fast & Furious action movies beginning in 2003, Annapolis (2005), Transformers (2007), Death Race (2008), Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (2009), Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011) and Ride Along 2 (2016).

‘My husband begged me not to fire our house help despite her bad behaviour, Should I be worried?

Men are daring when it comes to matters between the sheets, thus it is no longer shocking to find the man of the house laying the house help.

Hard as it may be to believe, some men have had relationships with their house helps/House managers for years, to an extent of fathering kids with them without the knowledge of their wives.

A city woman has been left in a dilemma on whether her man is in a relationship or not after an incident in which her husband begged for her not to fire the house help, despite her treating him badly.

She wrote
“My house help fought my husband this morning when we were on the dinning table and my husband asked her to get butter, she ignored him, he called her name and she ignored until I called her , asked her to get butter from the kitchen, it took her a long time so I asked my husband to go check what is keeping her , the next I was hearing was a struggle, I ran into the kitchen and saw her fighting my husband while he was just busy holding her down without slapping the living day light out of her . I pounced on her and gave her the beating of her life .


I asked to pack her things and leave my house but my husband kept begging on her behalf. Saying she might be depressed and going through a lot . I insisted but my husband kept begging . He said even if we will drive her not now, we should give a little time .I am worried , Could my husband be sleeping with my house help ? The guts the girl hard to fight him and he did nothing, even yes my husband is a perfect gentleman who will never raise his hands on any woman but this one is getting me worried .Do I need to be worried about this ?”

Has she given birth to a sibling of Jesus? Fans angrily ask after learning Lilian Muli might have spent Sh250k to deliver

Lilian Muli gave birth  few weeks ago and we have been keeping tabs on the second time mom and her new born baby Liam.

The TV presenter documented her entire pregnancy journey, something which rubbed most Kenyans the wrong way, with many arguing that she was giving her pregnancy too much attention.

Well, a local media house hinted that the TV presenter might have used almost half a million for her delivery and Kenyans can’t keep calm.

Kenyans wondered what was so special about Muli giving birth and using Ksh 250,000.

But guys, private hospitals are costly, and prices depend on things such as a private room, or if it’s a CS or maybe a baby has complications.

So it is possible she could have spent that amount.

Lilian has also expressed her desire to shed baby weight, just like many other mums do when they give birth.


A first look at Lilian Muli and three week old baby Liam

Here are some of the savage comments by Kenyans on the amount Lilian spent on her delivery

Afrah Afrin: But hio si ni 250k? A normal range for normal delivery in most Nairobi hospitals, na angeenda cs si ingekuwa viusasa, Kenya my homeland though

Vivian Atieno: So what,I gave birth at home and my boy is doing fine so hizo za Lilian muli hata angetumia 1milion God is the giver of life.
