Shellac Nails are a 21st technology that have revolutionized the nail industry and over the past few years have changed the way women get their nails done. So SalonAddict have put together some useful facts about Shellac Manicures

  • The term “Shellac” is a technology that was invented be Creative Nail Design in 2010.
  • The shellac formula is thin and flexible like nail polish but provides protection with a high gloss shine that resists dullness and chipping.  
  • Shellac is a mixture between gel nails and regular nail polish however it’s not thick and heavy like gel or acrylics. 
  • Shellac nails resists chips, scratches and smudges and can last up to two weeks.
  • A shellac manicure starts out like a traditional manicure, your nails are shaped and filed and your cuticles are pushed back. 
  • A base coat is applied followed by two coats of shellac and then a top coat to finish, then a UV light is used to cure each coat. 
  • No dry time is required so don’y worry about smudging your nails.
