What is CND Shellac?

CND Shellac is a revolutionary colour system for nails which gives you 14-day wear, non-chip, non-smudge, zero dry time, high gloss mirror finish for your nails.

Often mistaken for a gel polish, CND Shellac has similar qualities and is known as a power polish. CND Shellac is also hypo-allergenic and ‘3-free’, meaning it is free from formaldehyde, toluene and DBP (Dibutyl Phthalate). CND Shellac nails can last up to 14-days and give you long lasting, non-chip, non-smudge mirror finish looking nails. 

Top Tips for Beautiful Nails – Advice from the expert nail technicians at Body Essential Beauty Salon, Romford

We’ve all been there… You only just painted your nails, but they are already chipped! So, what can you do to keep your nail colour looking perfect for longer? Here are our top tips to help protect your nails.

shellac nail services body essential hair designer romford hair and beauty salonBiting your Nails: Biting your nails is one the most common ways to ruin your polish. Try applying a no-bite polish on your nails to help wean you off this nasty habit.

Spritzing Perfume: Avoid spraying your perfume too close to your nails because your scent may well contain some of the same ingredients as nail polish remover!

Applying Hair Spray: Similar to perfume, some hair sprays contain chemicals that will wear away at your nail polish. Avoid running your painted nails through your hair.

Adding Sunscreen: Put your sunscreen on BEFORE applying your nail polish. Many sunscreens will soften nail polish and can even dissolve acrylic nails.

Cleaning the House: Many cleaning products contain acetone, found in many nail polish removers, so check the labels carefully. Consider wearing gloves if you want your nail polish to last longer.

Washing the Dishes: Grab a pair of dish gloves to protect your nails (and hands) from harsh soaps. These soaps will start to lift your polish from your nails. It’s a great excuse to get your loved ones to lend a hand too!
