Shellac Nails E-mail

Shellac is a mix of traditional nail polish with an ultraviolet (UV) gel polish.

 

The secret with Shellac is that the varnish is secured under a UV lamp and dries within seconds. After that it stays and stays, so you only need to have your nails done every 14 days or so depending on how fast they grow (nails grow on average 0.1 mm each day, but quicker in summer and when you are pregnant).

 

Shellac doesn't damage the nails, on the contrary Shellac strengthens them from underneath.

 

It sets in a base coat (in other words: no harmful buffing involved, like most of the competitive brands choose to do) and applies like a nail polish. This is simply a colour that stays on your own natural nail perfectly until it grows out or you decide to remove it.

 

WHAT IF I WANT TO WEAR A DIFFERENT COLOUR ONE DAY

You can put any regular nail polish on top, but make sure you use a non-acetone remover when you want it off again - as long as there's no acetone it has no effect on the Shellac underneath. If you just want to strengthen your nails, try a clear Shellac colour. That way it is easier to apply sheer colours and your gorgeous nudes.

 

HOW DO I REMOVE SHELLAC

 

Have your Shellac removed in the salon, or buy acetone, soak a cotton pad with it and press on the nail for a couple of minutes. Gentle rubbing with a nail brush or cuticle stick can speed up the process.

 

GET READY FOR THE HOLIDAYS

Get your summer feet and hands perfect before the holidays. Suncreams often make nail polish colours messy and matt. And who wants to worry about nails when in Marrakesh searching for treasures or enjoying lazy life on a sunny beach anyways. Go Shellac your nails before the trip!

 

MAINTENANCE

For easy maintenance you can touch up the cuticles of your nails by using a similarly coloured nail varnish as the nails grow. But remember that base coat should always come first!
