Unlike gel nails shellac is applied to your natural nail. Thin coats of polish are applied with a brief time for curing under a UV lamp in between each coat.
Regular nail polish dries by evaporation therefore it can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hour to dry. Shellac nail polish is completely dry at the end of the manicure by using a UV light, enabling a nick-free application every time.
Shellac is for anyone looking for a long lasting manicure. It is best suited for healthy nail beds. People who have nail beds that peel or are extremely damaged should use a corrective program first to ensure the Shellac does not lift off the nail bed.
Is Shellac safe?
Shellac is “3-Free” meaning it is not made with Formaldehyde, Toluene or DBP (Dibutyl Phthalate), the 3 ingredients that are found in many nail products that result in harmful side effects. The nails do not need to be prepped with drills or course buffers allowing the integrity of the nail to be preserved.
How long does it last?
Your shellac polish will retain a high shine colour and remain chip-free for 14 days. As the natural nail grows the nail polish will begin to grow out resulting in the need for a new application of polish.
How is Shellac removed?
It takes about 15 minutes. We use finger wraps with acetone to remove the polish. These wraps are designed to isolate each nail and prevent the acetone from over drying the skin. Once the nails are properly saturated with remover, the polish easily flakes off, without ripping the cuticles or damaging the nails. There should be no residue left over that requires strong buffers for removal.
Will I receive UV damage from UV lights?
Creative nail has ensured their low-watt UV bulbs filter out most of the damaging rays and have been tested to be safer than the exposure your hands get from driving in the sun.
