12 New Shellac Shades Coming Soon !
Here's how is works. Shellac is applied just like polish, 1 coat of Base, 2 coats of Color and 1 coat of Top. Shellac can be applied over natural nails after a manicure or pedicure and over artificial enhancements after an acrylic or gel fill has been performed. Each coat is then placed in the CND Shellac UV lamp for the required amount of time. Now seeing as how Shellac is a true "hybrid" (half polish/ half soak-off gel) it does seem to appear as though its hardening like polish but the only way this product will harden or fully "cure" is with the help of a UV lamp, it will not ever "dry" on its own. The application of Shellac looks easy enough to maybe try it on yourself (Shellac must be applied by a licensed professional, namely me, Linda Reyes and products are sold only through licensed beauty suppliers) but after having worked with it from day 1 I have found it to be quite fickle at times and have adapted a few many tricks of my own (to be kept secret, lol...)
After each coat is applied and cured for the required amount of time 1 Base, 2 Colors and 1 Top, there will be a tacky residue. This is typical of all gel products and is called the dispersion layer. The dispersion layer or "tackiness" is removed with alcohol to reveal the most fabulous shine ! And not only are your new Shellac nails incredibly shiny they are completely dry, really ! At the complete of your Shellac Manicure your freshly polished nails are ready to face the world and stay beautiful for weeks! There is no possible way to nick or smudge your Perfectly Polished Shellac Manicured nails !!
I have priced Shellac according to my market and my local neighborhood and that seems to be much lower than most markets as even compared to neighboring Salons in the Downtown Orlando area. Fortunately for me my overhead / rent is low enough to allow me to pass on the savings to all of you.....
