Shellac Gel

Discover the difference with Shellac Gel

Do you find normal polish manicures chip quickly? Do you want to find an alternative to Acrylics and Tips? Then take a look at Shellac Gel which can last up to 2 weeks.  Proper professional removal, or using a shellac remove kit, leaves your nails undamaged, healthy and hydrated.

After having Shellac gel applied, there a few tips to make sure your gels stay intact and last as long as possible.

  • Avoid using any bleach or hair dye, unless you are wearing gloves
  • Use gloves when washing up, or using any cleaning products or toilet cleaner/bleach
  • Use gloves when gardening
  • Do not file your nails – this will break the seal and the gel will come off!
  • Do not pick at the edges of the gel, or chew your finger nails!

We offer a free touch-up if within 48 hours of your appointment something has happened – please call and leave a message as soon as this happens as we can’t honour repairs if you tell us after 48 hours. After 48 hours, it really is up to you to take of them!

Shellac Gels - why and what's the difference?

Kinder than acrylic or false nails hellac Gels provide strong, hardwearing, non-chip, natural looking glossy nails; easy to remove & leaves your nails undamaged. It looks fantastic on fingers as well as toes!

Application

Unlike some other gel treatments Shellac does not require buffing, primers or bonders on nails.
A classic Manicure (or pedicure) is carried out and the the gels are applied - a clear base, 2 colour coats & a clear top gel are applied with each coat 'cured' (set hard) under a UV lamp.

Afterwards your polish is ... dry .... hard .... chip proof .... and can last for up to 2 weeks if you take care of them!

Removal

Shellac Gels are quicky and easy to remove. Unlike acrylics there is no drilling, sanding or filing & therefore no heat or discomfort. To remove -

1) top layer of gel is made matt with a light buff to the gel (NOT the nail!).
2) then wrapped in a remover patch and left for 5 minutes~
3) remove the wrap with a twist and the gel comes off.
We recommend you have gels removed professionally at the salon, or call in and purchase a home gel removal kit
