Shellac nail polish, sometimes referred to as gel nail polish, 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.
Shellac Nails lasts up to 14 days without losing shine, breaking, chipping, or smudging. Even more amazing is the removal process. It is a 1, 2, 3 miracle. Shellac Nails comes right off with application of acetone.
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.
Shellac isn't for clients with extremely damaged nail beds, split or peeling nails. It is best to get on a corrective program with your manicurist before thinking about Shellac. If your nail is peeling off, it will take Shellac with it.
Shellac Nail Polish is a fresh nail service and system which has spread all through the beauty world. Thanks to demand from customers many nail pros which are now offering Shellac Nail Polish as a standard salon service.
