Shellac, Novato’s Durable and Long-Lasting Nail Care Solution

Many of our Novato clients desire a nail solution that is durable, affordable and long-lasting. With so many options, it can be hard to decide which one is right for you. Shellac is a hybrid of regular nail polish and gel, meaning that it has the natural look of nail polish with the long-lasting durability of gel. The great thing about shellac is that it is applied to your nails just like regular nail polish. That means, there is no need to sacrifice the integrity of the natural nail. No filing or shaving down what’s already there.

What is Shellac?

Shellac is a blend of gel and nail polish. Unfortunately, due to the fact that it is not malleable, you are not able to use it to extend or enhance the length of your natural nail like you would with gel or acrylic. Therefore, if you are looking to extend your natural nail, shellac may not be the choice for you and you will have better luck with acrylic or gel.

The major advantage of shellac is that the it adds strength and durability to your natural nail because of its gel properties. We always recommend shellac to our Novato clients who lead busy lives and use their hands a lot since shellac reduces chipping and lasts for up to two weeks. If you work as a cashier, typist, dishwasher or just lead a busy unpredictable life with kids, shellac is for you.

Unique, Customizable Colors and Nail Art Designs

Another positive note to mention about shellac is that there are an endless variety of colors and designs to customize your nails with. No matter what your mood, style or color preference is, there is sure to be a perfect and unique solution for you.
