The removing Process

So I my last post was on Shellac Hybrid nails and I couldn't wait to try another color. The color I chose was rose bud (pictured below):I liked this color on my skin tone. The only thing about Shellac is that I wished there were more colors to choose from. They only have 12 colors and don't have a wide range of shades. The removal process:Per their website ( they have removal wraps and it comes off easily. At the salon they actually soaked the nails for a little while in acetone and the polish removed easily. Not too bad, but if they have the wraps available I wonder why the Salon doesn't invest in them. I would've loved to try the wraps!

Shellac! A Hybrid Nail?

Shellac The First Hybrid Nail"Like any quality polish application, the Shellac system features a Base Coat, Color Coat and Top Coat. Together with a UV Lamp, they comprise the breakthrough in resilient color that remains flawless for two weeks and removes in 10 minutes." Shellac formula is "3-free", which means it is free of Formaldehyde, Toluene and Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP). I have included pictures belowRight after nails were done: The color I chose was Tropix..11 days later:I like the way my nails look with this polish. It's always shiny and new looking and they never chipped. There is no waiting for your nails to dry and they cant get smudged. I had my nails done at the Salon where I massage and after I was finished getting my nails done I went to massage and didn't mess them up. It was weird being able to go straight to massage and not worry about my nails messing up. The only down fall is when your nails start to grow, just like with acrylic, you will see the "line of demarcation." I can't wait to try another color!!
