What are Shellac Nails?

Even though it is not as widely used in Japan as Gel, overseas Shellac is more popular then gel and regular polish. Some of the reasons are:
1/ Shellac is more nail friendly then gel
2/ You don’t need to wait for drying like regular polish
3/ You don’t need to buff the nails (this helps to keep the nails stronger)
4/ Stays more glossy
5/ Easy to remove!
When nail enhancements are removed, the nail itself may be damaged. The act of forcibly peeling the gel and Shellac can also peel some of the top layers of your nails. Unlike gel however, Shellac can be easily removed with a dedicated solution without scraping the surface. For those who wish to remove Shellac nails at home, we provide a “take off” kit. Applying the kit to each nail for 10 to 15 minutes will  successfully remove the Shellac without damaging the nail. This is also a good excuse to sit back, relax and watch your favourite show!
At the Elana Jade salon, we use a variety of CND and O.P.I. with a large range of colour and designs.
