About Shellac gel nails polish
Mixture of colours for your nails available. One of the colours I do have is the wildfire red, which is the official virgin Atlantic red, which they use in the clubhouse for their nails. More available on request. Shellac was the first gel polish on the market for nails and is by far the best gel polish available for your nails in my opinion, when applied to healthy nails and removed correctly it causes no damage what-so-ever! CND Shellac is 3-free (contains no formaldehyde, DBP (dibutyl phthalate) and toluene). Shellac is produced by CND. This gel polish on average lasts 14 days without chip or peel and is incredibly easy to remove. Removal only takes 10 mins with soak-off wraps. This nail polish is fantastic for busy ladies on the go as there is no waiting time for the polish to dry on your nails. It sets on your nails under a UV lamp, so you leave the salon with perfect nails and don’t smudge them trying to get your keys out of your handbag. CND have been in the beauty field since 1979 and are a very highly respected company in the industry.
Nail rehab appointment If you have severely bitten nails, poorly maintained cuticles or just plain neglected nails The 'normal' manicure is probably not enough for you. It takes time to tidy up nails that have been neglected for a while. Therefore I would recommend booking a longer appointment. It's absolutely nothing to be embarrassed about, my nails often look awful after doing lots of DIY etc around the house, so I need longer to tidy them up. I charge all my appointments by time. Email me for more information, if you feel you don't fit into a 'normal' appointment box.
Shellac gel removal
This is a short appointment of soaking the gels gently off your nails using soak-off wraps. I can do this for you at the salon or you can remove them at home. I retail the soak-off products.
Shellac nails for wedding
Shellac is ideal for bridal nails as it’s 14 days no chip or peel. Shellac also sell the traditional polish, which is available on request. So if you are getting married abroad and worried you might chip one of the gel polishes while you are packing for your honeymoon, then you can simply repair it on the morning of your wedding with no hassle.
Shellac nails for pamper parties & no time for ‘me time’
As this is a quick application on your nails it is ideal for pamper parties and lunch time appointments as there is no waiting time. I do many pamper parties at people’s homes. The host often provides lovely snacks and wine while her guests take it in turn to have their nails done. If it’s a larger party I can ask one of my trusted beautician friends to help on the night or day.
I purchase full metal tools for my nail treatments where possible, which are sterilized in my autoclave (pressured steam at 134′) after each client. Read more about my infection control policy on my blog post
