Cool Designs For You To Rock Shellac Nails

Shellac nails are 50 percent regular nail lacquer, 50 percent gel. Typically, nail technicians apply two colorful coats and then finish with one top coat. After every coat, nails are cured in a lamp with the UV light.

So, are they different from gel nails? First of all, the shellac manicure involves semi-permanent nail lacquer, and the gel manicure involves semi-permanent gel.

Also, gel nail polish lasts longer, comparing to shellac manicure. It’s because shellac is a bit thinner, comparing to gel. It may break after two weeks, and gel is likely to stay on for three.

Read on to discover super cool nail designs for shellac mani.
