The days of chipped nail polish are long gone with the invention of shellac and gel polish, but between the two do you really know the difference? Until I attended a CND Shellac International show, I didn’t. After hearing about the differences, I know that the next time I get my nails done, I’ll be asking for Shellac.
Shellac is a patent-pending formulation of solvents, monomers and polymers. It is hypoallergenic and contains no formaldehyde, toluene or DBP.
Shellac is like gel polish in that they both last for about 14 days. Unlike gel polish, shellac does not require buffing down of the nail before application. That’s a plus because your nails won’t have to endure any damage for this treatment. Also, shellac goes on much thinner and smoother than gel polish, giving a more natural look.
Shellac application time is less than gel polish and removal takes less than half the time. All in all, you will be able to get in and out much faster with just as fantastic nails.
