Can You Say Shellac?

Taking the old polish off

After hearing rave reviews about Shellac manicures for several months now I was eager to give it a try. Shellac polish differs from its predecessor in that it is nearly indestructible. The first manicure I got lasted over two weeks and had to be changed simply from nail growth, not from chipping. It also differs in that the whole procedure is done backwards…. your polish goes on first before any lotions, oils or other beauty products are applied. Your nails are completely dry after two coats of polish and “baking” in short intervals under a UV light.

In response to all the hype I must say I am now a big fan of Shellac* and highly recommend this manicure for ladies who don’t have the time or money to spend in a salon every week. It would also be a wonderful treat before a vacation or big event to ensure that your nails stay perfectly polished.

*I have been told that there are several Shellac imitators to beware of as they are lower quality and can damage your nails. From my understanding your best bet is to look for the original CND products for your Shellac manicure. Check out the website to find a Shellac Salon near you.
