Shellac Nail Polish is Awesome!

A question I regularly am asked is there a difference between shellac nail kits and regular nail polish? So, here is the answer!

Shellac is an acrylic gel nail polish, which is painted straight onto your nail. However when it dries it sets like a fake nail. So it's similar to having a fake nail painted on, making it much more robust than standard nail polish.

First off, start with a regular manicure, slice cuticles, file nail, and buff nails etc. Then get the UV light (that you can get in the starter set) and place it on the table. Begin with an under layer, then multiple colour coats, and finally a top layer. As you receive with a manicure. Following this you hold them beneath the UV light for 3 minutes to let it set.

The great thing about these is there is no drying time after the top coats are dry, they are rock hard! So you can go about your day straight away without needing to worry about wrecking them!

My favourite feature about these nail kits are they DON'T crack! Honestly, you don't need to hold back with this polish, you'd find it hard to chip your nails even if you were trying to do it on purpose!

I get loads of people that are scared about damage to their nails, but don't be scared! If you remove them carefully and correctly then there is no damage to your nails at all. So don't worry about that! Your nails are also made stronger when using shellac, so there is less chance of you breaking a nail, which is a nice thought!

All in all I am a giant fan of Shellac. They are very cheap for the great quality you get, and they look much more impressive than normal polish. So get your Shellac nail colours today!!

Something else I noticed while I was using shellac was I get so many compliments about my nails! I adore receiving compliments and being able to tell people the way I got them. They always test them out and say they will never go back! That's why I decided to write this!

I have placed links at the beginning to the most reliable places to buy these so look them out if you want the cheapest prices! I trust this article helps you in your quest for the greatest nails!
