Shellac Nails

Shellac Nails in Toledo OhioA Refinement Salon is one of Toledo’s best Shellac nail application specialists.  Shellac is a nail product that lasts for at least 14 days without chipping, scratching, or smudging. Lasting 14 days is an accomplishment all by itself but shellac does even more. Many women have noticed that their nails are stronger and healthier after using shellac. Not only does it not damage your nail but it improves your nails health.

Below are some answers to common questions about Shellac nails.

Will Shellac last longer than 14 days?

For most women their nails grow fast. Nails that are healthy do grow fast and this is good. However, nail growth is the reason most women get removal and reapplication at the 14 day mark. They do this because the nail has grown out and it is visible from the bottom of the shellac, on the nail, and the new nail growth.

The second reason for getting the shellac removed at the 14 day mark is for the best removal results. The adhesion of the shellac will increase the longer the Shellac is worn. By waiting more than 14 days you are in fact making it a little harder to remove the shellac. This means that the removal process will take longer.
