What is Shellac?

When I am at the salon, I have a lot of people ask me, “What is Shellac?” and most of them feel really silly for asking. That is not a silly question at all! Shellac is a gel based polish that is cured under the UV light with every layer. On your fingernails, it usually lasts between 2-3 weeks and on your toes it can last for about 8 weeks! It is so shiny, and makes your nails feel harder. It isn’t damaging on your nails like acrylic, gel nails, or rock star toes. I have always just done Shellac on my toes. I finally got it done on my nails! I had my dear friend, Nellie give me a French polish. Pictures taken in dim light don’t do them justice at all!

They look and almost feel like acrylic nails. They are hard like them, but not so thick. I absolutely love them. I would 100% recommend getting this done. It makes me feel pretty without feeling as high maintenance as I do when I have acrylic nails. So in short terms, Shellac nails=totally worth it!
