What is Shellac?
Shellac is the brand name for a new, patent pending nail product created by Creative Nail Design. 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 your 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.
Can you apply Shellac at home?
No, Shellac can only be applied by a licensed, trained manicurist. Improper tools or techniques will give a less than desirable result with Shellac.
Can you take Shellac off at home?
Yes you can purchase a new Shellac "Remove Tube" which contains all the tools you need to remove.
Wait, what is wrong with artificial nails?
On the whole, nothing. But as a manicurist and proponent of natural and organics, there is nothing is more exciting than seeing natural nails on a client.
