The shellac manicure includes shaping of the nail, a stress-relieving milk-bath soak, massage, and shellac polish, which lasts for up to two weeks without chipping. The pedicure relaxes feet with shaping of the nail, a milk bath, and a choice of foot scrubs. There are two different foot scrubs, one with brown sugar, and another with tea tree and mint, but they both exfoliate and soothe feet.
Shellac Polish: An Indestructible Allure
Select salons offer Shellac polish, which can last—chip-free—for weeks. Read on for our look at this resilient manicure style.
Available in more than 45 shades, Shellac polish is no longer new technology, but only trained technicians in a certified salon are eligible to apply it. The UV curing process—safe for the skin—is so effective that Shellac polish must be removed at the salon using strong acetone, most often by slipping a special soaking pad over each finger for a few minutes. Although the polish may not last on dry or flaky nails, healthy fingers generally retain their shine, only losing their color as the roots of new nails start to grow in from the cuticle.
