Shellac nails, also known as gel nails, last and last, but they look more natural than some other manicure options. If you want a shiny, hardwearing polish option, they're a great bet.
The only difference between these two style of polish is the name. Essentially, Shellac is just the original name or brands for the gel polish compound. Kind of like how O.P.I is a brand for a polish, Shellac is a brand for gel.
You'll notice your Shellac nails growing out around the two-week mark. It's also a good idea to give your nails a break without any polish from time to time to keep your natural nails healthy.
Shellac nails cost $45 on average to get done.
Shellac or gel nail appointments take about 45 minutes on average.
When your Shellac manicure starts growing out, head back to the salon to get it removed without damaging the nail underneath. Avoiding chlorine swimming pools or other chemicals will ensure your Shellac polish lasts even longer.
