Shellac and gel nails

Shellac is the brand name for a new, patent pending nail product created by Creative Nail Design (CND). It is a hybrid, meaning half nail polish, half gel. The product can be applied similarly to nail polish on your natural nails (no sculpting or filing). It is cured through UV lighting, just like Gels.

What Are Gel Nails?
A gel manicure and a Shellac manicure are essentially the same thing: long-lasting polishes cured under UV lamps. The difference is that "gel nails" or "manicure" is the generic term for nails done under a UV lamp, while Shellac is a brand of gel nails by the company Creative Nail Design (CND). Let’s cover gels first. Gel nails are made by a three-step process, which consists of brushing a base coat, nail polish, and top coat over your natural nails. With each coat, the nail is placed under a UV light for somewhere between 30 seconds and two minutes to cure.

Once cured, the layer of gel polish hardens and won’t smudge like a regular nail polish. The final result is nails that sport a glossy and freshly manicured look. If you want to extend the length of your natural nails, gel nails also come in handy. Gel extensions, we’re looking at you! This popular technique consists of an extended tip, typically made of acrylic, that’s attached to the ends of your nails. Next, your nails undergo the normal process of applying a gel nail polish system and being placed under a UV lamp to set.

How long do Shellac Nails last?
About two weeks. Shellac was the first hybrid polish, produced by CND, and you can expect manicures to last about two weeks. Some may find that the chip-free finish lasts longer than this, but it's recommended that you get them removed after 14 days as by this time your own nail will have started to grow out.

Gelish lasts longer?
Gelish is a pure, thin UV gel that is pigmented in various degrees to give colour. The formula, which applies like a classic polish, but lasts much longer, is slightly thicker than shellac; expect it to last up to three weeks while protecting your natural nail (bonus). Gelish can often work better for those with weaker nails because of its impenetrable polish.

Most of the times we tend to overlook our nails when looking at our personal hygiene. This is however a very big mistake. The nails are just as important as any other part of the body and failing to take care of them can actually pose a health risk to you. Just like all other parts of the body, a healthy diet is essential to getting good nails but this is just the beginning.
