SHELLAC NAILS

Manicures and pedicures are a difficult art to master. No matter how great they look when finished, they seem to always chip within days, if not in a matter of hours. Enter the Gel nail manicure – a groundbreaking technique that uses gel polishes that get ‘cured’ under UV lights. The result? Shiny, strong nails for weeks and no drying time! Should last for at least 2 weeks with NO chipping. Shellac does not require buffing of the natural nail meaning that the nail grows and become stronger.

 

patented gel & polish combined

Shellac nails are a form of nail polish—there are more than 100 shades you can choose from at verified salons—developed and patented by nail guru Jan Arnold of Creative Nail Design (CND). The secret sauce of shellac nails is that they combine two types of polish—gel (so your mani lasts long) and traditional polish (which gives your nails shine and a nice pop of color). The formulas bind together when the teeny molecules (called monomers) and larger molecules (called polymers) it’s comprised of are exposed to LED light, creating a shellac effect—hence the term: shellac nails.

Does shellac manicures damage your nails?

If you go to a salon to get your shellac nails removed, no, you typically won’t leave with damaged nails. But if you decide to peel off your nails at home, it can also take off the top layers of your nail’s surface making it weak and brittle. The nails need to removed with care and preferably by a trained nail clinician.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE & HOW LONG WILL THEY LAST?

A treatment takes approximately an hour.

A Shellac treatment last for at least 2 weeks with NO chipping. Shellac does not require buffing of the natural nail meaning that the nail grows and become stronger.
