WHAT ARE SHELLAC NAILS?
Shellac is the brand name for a new, patent pending nail product created by CND. It is a hybrid, meaning half nail polish, half gel.
The product is thin and strong enough to be applied similarly to nail polish, but it is cured in a way that gives it great flexibility and durability. It also has the incredible shine associated only with gel nails.
WHO IS SHELLAC BEST SUITED FOR?
Shellac is for people who want to maintain natural nails. The formulation looks as good from day 1 to day 14, but does not damage nail beds.
HOW IS SHELLAC DIFFERENT FROM THE TRADITIONAL POLISH MANICURE?
Typical nail polish dries by evaporation, which means your manicure is not cured until 2-3 hours after your service. Think about it – most of your manicure time is spent waiting for polish to dry.
But Shellac is cured by UV light, and within minutes. Your nails are completely dry by the time your manicure is over, and strong enough to withstand accidental knocks. It acts like a plasticized coating, suitable as a long lasting polish.
HOW IS A SHELLAC SERVICE DIFFERENT FROM TRADITIONAL NAIL ENHANCEMENTS (FAKE NAILS)?
Drills are never used or needed with Shellac, and removal does not leave nails dry, thin, possibly torn.
