Shellac nails are the latest trend in nail care and provide a long lasting polish like no other. The shellac nails are cured under a UV lamp, which allows the polish to last for weeks without chipping. With proper care it can last for up to fourteen days with no sign of wear or chipping.
Shellac Nails: Long Lasting Polish That Gives the Look of Gels
Shellac nails offer a long lasting polish that gives the look of gels, but without the damage to your nails. It is a hybrid between regular nail polish and gel nails, and has been growing steadily in popularity since its introduction in 2010. The shellac manicure process involves using a UV lamp to cure and harden the polish, much like how gel manicures are done. Unlike gel manicures though, you don’t need to soak off the polish once it grows out; your technician will simply file off the top layer to remove your color.
The benefits of shellac nails are huge!
1. Quicker than normal manicures
2. No drying time – you can go straight away after having your nails painted
3. Lasts longer than normal nail polish – generally 14 days
4. You can have the color removed by filing instead of soaking off the layers of polish (less damaging)
5. You get a very high gloss shine that doesn’t chip or peel, and looks like a gel manicure
Shellac is the newest trend in nail care. It is a long lasting polish that can last up to two weeks without chipping. Shellac nails are the perfect combination of nail polish and gel nails. They give you the look of gel nails without having to use UV light to dry them.
Shellac nails are best done in a salon. All salons have different prices but it usually ranges from $25-40 depending on the salon and location. Shellac nails can be done at home, but it takes time and patience since you will need to do them carefully. Just like any other manicure, you should start by trimming your cuticles and shaping your nails before applying the shellac polish.

Shellac Manicure vs Gel Manicure – What’s the difference?
Shellac is not just another polish, its a pure hybrid of traditional nail polish and UV gel. Gel manicures are done with gel polishes and require the use of a UV lamp to cure (harden) the gel polish. Gel nails do provide long lasting wear but they can also be very damaging to your natural nails if not properly removed. Shellac on the other hand, has the benefits of a gel manicure without the damaging side effects. Shellac polishes are thinner than gel polishes and do not require primers or bonders like gels do. They do not cause any damage to your natural nails because they can be removed with simple nail polish remover!

Gels were the solution to this problem, but they require intense UV light and can be damaging to your nails if applied incorrectly. Another problem with gels is the removal process. To remove gel nail polish you must soak the nails in acetone until they are soft. This can be painful and time consuming.
