    Artificial nails are not allowed but what about gel or SNS powder nails? It is hard to find up to date information since it seems that the popular nail treatment is always changing. Sns powder does not involve adding an artificial nail tip, does that mean it's ok?

      Depends on the hospital. If it doesn't chip, nail polish is allowed, except artificial nails.
      Agreed. No artificial tips, no chipped polish is my rule.

      I am loving OPI's gel in "Keep It In Neutral" these days for a sheer neutral that doesn't catch the eye of the more militant OR nurses but still makes my hands look well-groomed.
