Renee Albera got her first gel manicure in 2012 and loved it. However, one day she noticed sunspots all over her hands. Then she learned the lamps used to cure the gel emit UVA light and each gel manicure was equal to approximately 40 minutes of sunlight. Loving gel manicures, Renee tried to think of ways to protect her skin and despite looking for available solutions to the UVA exposure (sunscreen, fingerless gloves), nothing adequate currently existed in the marketplace that provided the necessary protection. Determined to make gel manicures safer, she researched, hired an engineer to create a shield that covered the skin on the top of the hand. In 2014, YouVeeShield was born.
