So, you have paid the extra to have a Shellac Manicure/Pedicure instead of your normal polish so it makes sense to want to get the most out of what you have purchased. I know you will absolutely LOVE your nails and I expect them to last for 14 days PROVIDED you give them a little care and attention during that time. Follow the steps below to keep your nails in tip top condition:
We say Shellac is pretty indestructible with NORMAL wear and tear, which means you have to partner with us by adding a little protection to your nails when doing tough jobs such as household cleaning and gardening; Hobbies that are tough on your hands/nails or using chemicals without wearing gloves can considerably mar your Shellac service.
If you do cause some damage or notice any of the following signs we hope you find the advice below helpful.
If lifting or peeling is noticed please do NOT pick or pull at the lifted area, as this will cause the lifting to increase and could even damage the natural nail. Please ring me on 01548 844983 so that I can assess the nail and decide if a repair is necessary. Please note that repairs will be chargeable.
If you are on holiday please be careful when using sun tan oils or insect repellent solutions as many of these products contain DEET which will cause major damage to the Shellac colour coat. Apply these and then take care to remove an excess product from nails thoroughly.
Please use Solar Oil at least twice a day (especially at night before going to bed). I recommend Solar Oil or Rose Oil which I retail at £3.95 £7.95 and £12.95 in various sizes and which is made to be used with Shellac. Also beneficial is the use of any CND hand and body lotion daily. Regularly using CND aftercare products will substantially prolong the life of your Shellac and keep your natural nails and the skin surrounding them healthy, moisturised and flexible so that if you knock your nails they are more likely to flex than break.
If you wish to temporarily change the colour of your nails whilst wearing Shellac you can use nail enamel over the Shellac but please be sure to use an Acetone Free Remover when removing nail polish.
