Taking Care of your Shellac Nails

Shellac is the breakthrough, patent-pending, UV-3 technology that combines the ease of polish with the permanence of gels. The Shellac System features a Base Coat, Color Coat and Top Coat resulted in resilient color that remains flawless for 14-days and removes in 10 minutes. It's thin and flexible like polish, so it not only looks natural, it provides strong natural nail protection. Read more...

Shellac is a "hybrid" of nail polish and gel. No other products in the market can stand up to the claim - on like polish, wears like gel, off in minutes. Read more... From all types of manicure Shellac manicure is considered to be one of the better choices for your nails.

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.

The key to keeping your Shellac manicures looking awesome beyond two weeks is moisturizer and cuticle maintenance.

  • Protect hands as much as possible - wear gloves when washing up, gardening, decorating or carrying out any activity involving harsh objects/chemicals.
  • Be sure to wipe off sun tan lotion from the surface of your Shellac nails when finished applying. This will ensure chipped and lifted free of your Shellac nails.
  • Regular use of SolarOil to maintaining good nails and cuticles. SolarOil contains natural ingredients, including Sweet Almond Oil, Jojoba Oil and Vitamin E.
    It's best used at least once a day or more. Dab or brush a little onto each cuticle and massage in small circles with the pad of your thumb. This pushes the oil into the skin and the nail benefits from the massage as it stimulates the nail matrix, encouraging healthy nail growth.

It is preferred that you have your Shellac nails removed professionally, but rather than have you pick your Shellac off your nails and cause damage, we thought we would share the proper removal instructions with you to save your natural nails from any trauma that can be caused by picking or removing Shellac polishes incorrectly. What you will need

  • Acetone
  • Cotton balls
  • Aluminum foil cut into squares that will fit well over each nail

Soak a cotton ball in acetone and place it on the nail and tightly wrap each nail with aluminum foil Wait for 15 minutes and remove each foil from the fingers There may be some product remaining on the nails which can be removed easily with a wooden manicure stick or lightly buffed with a nail file.

Knowing Shellac can withstand even the rigors of salon life, the focus for the everyday woman can be more on care and maintenance of skin and nails - leaving perfect polish in the hands of Shellac.
