CND – Shellac


Another big thing is the method and product which the salon will use to soak off your gel polish. Many salons soak a cotton ball in pure acetone and wrap your nail with tin foil and soak for 10 minutes. In some cases this could be fine, but for people with fragile, thin nails there’s a big potential for damage when soaking off with pure acetone. What we would recommend is asking the salon if they carry CND Shellac Nourishing Remover. (Price Range: 8oz. bottle $7-$9)


CND Shellac™ Nourishing Remover


Safely removes CND Shellac enhancements, tips, wraps and adhesives from the nail plate.


This product has most definitely been our saving grace… it doesn’t dry out your nail beds when removing the gel polish!


There are 2 other key factors when getting a gel manicure. One is …. make sure your nails are completely dry. 1 hour prior to getting your gel manicure DO NOT WASH YOUR HANDS! When you wash your hands regardless of whether you think your nails are dry … they’re not. So, what happens is the gel polish will run and shrink away from your nail when it’s applied. It’s a major pain in the neck for manicurists and the chances of your manicure lasting the full 2 weeks is again.. slim to none!


Another key factor to prolonging your gel polish manicure and preserving the health of your natural nails is using cuticle oil on the daily while wearing your gel polish. Apply it to your nails in the morning or apply it at night. Which ever time you works for you.. ..JUST DO IT! This will keep your nail beds properly hydrated, for when it’s time to soak off your gel polish. Many companies make cuticle oil. We personally like CND Solar Oil.


So, to sum it all up here are the key points you need to know regarding gel polish.


Find a quality salon that carries either Essie, Gelish, Gel II or CND Shellac gel polish

Ask if they use or can get CND Shellac Nourishing Remover to soak off the gel polish when you’re ready for your next polish change.


(PS. all salons are able to purchase CND Shellac Nourishing Remover... it’s a little bit pricey but well worth it. It’s sold at CosmoProf and Salon Centric- 2 beauty supply stores with locations nation wide — open to professionals only. Or you can buy your own bottle online.)


DON’T WASH YOUR HANDS
(1-2 hours) PRIOR TO GETTING A GEL MANICURE! The gel polish won’t stick to your nail.


APPLY CUTICLE OIL DAILY
– Ask the salon if they sell small bottles of cuticle oil. Cuticle oil is key to maintaining your gel manicure and keeping your cuticles and nail beds properly hydrated and to prevent damage. If they don’t sell the oil, pick up a small bottle at CVS or any local drug store.


Applying heat to your nails during the soak off process, when your nails are wrapped in tin foil the heat will activate the soak off solution and cut your soak off time in half. Average Soak Off Time: 10 minutes
