The Facts about Shellac
By now many of you have either had Shellac done, have a friend who has, or you’ve at least heard the word tossed around. This month’s blog is dedicated to giving you the skinny on this year’s most popular nail service.
Shellac is a type of nail polish. It is applied much like your basic polish brands, but unlike the standard polish, it is “cured” under a UV lamp. This allows the polish to adhere firmly to the nail bed. First the base coat is applied and cured. Next we apply the color of your choice and then it too is cured. This hardens the color for long-lasting coverage. Lastly, the top coat is painted on and cured. This hardens the polish and sets the manicure with a protective layer.
This process of “curing” the different layers is what allows Shellac to last longer than the typical polish. Shellac generally lasts up to two weeks! With regular use, your nails will grow longer and stronger. What’s the best part of Shellac? It’s completely dry when you leave! That fact alone allows for so much freedom! Say goodbye to worrying about smudging and chipping your freshly painted nails. Concerned that your day-to-day activities will ruin your manicure? From the moment you walk out the door, to your next big event, your nails will stay looking fabulous with Shellac.
