    In doing a new dipping powder set discover green in 3 nails I have been doing acrylic nails for over 25 years never have any problems started doing dip 3 months ago liked it because can go longer without a refill, a few days ago needed a new set an discover the spots of course I panic never seen that before. She didn’t do a new set just did a gel manicure and that was it. Didn’t want to have clear polish be cause you can see them how long before this is gone? Can I apply anything to it while wearing the gel polish?

    • Hello Millie, thank you for your comment.
      Did your technician remove the dipping powder entirely before reapplying the new gel polish? If she did, this is a good sign. Once the green spot is exposed to oxygen the bacteria growth stops. There is nothing that can be done while the gel polish is on. But as long as she treated it by removing product, filing or buffing the area lightly and spraying with alcohol before re-application you should be fine. The green spot will just have to grow out.
      I am a little skeptical with the dipping powders because there is really no way (in my opinion) to sanitize them. So there is risk there for bacteria to grow.
      Please keep me posted and let me know if you have any further questions!
