Is that different than accrylic?  I got accrilics the first time around and they were great until we went on the honeymoon and then they just got in the way

Are Shellac nails like gel polish?

My sister in law just did it for a wedding she was in a few weeks ago and one my girls friends swares by it. I will probably be doing for my wedding but i think it only comes in colors so if you watned to do french tips you will have to go the old fashion route.


@nelly - it is different then accrylic, it is like a juiced up version of regular nail polish.  It doesnt crack, chip or fade until you decide to remove it.

@starbux - Shellac is a little different then gel - its more of a hybrid, gels have been getting alot of bad press in the news because of its application and removal products

I always learn beauty stuff on PW first! After my search, I am quite intrigued. I somehow don't think Maine will be up to date with this though...

I want to do a trial first and then take it from there. I am not a fan of accrylic because of the damage that it does to you nails but I just may have to do it on my big day.

Yes! It is AMAZING! My BM does nails and did mine for my brothers wedding and it was just fabulous. It's known as the 2 week manicure because that's about how long it lasts. It looks super polished and fresh, I highly recommend it and will be doing it for my big day as well as all my BM's.

My profile picture, my nails have shallac on them. It comes in several colors and can even do french. I would highly recommend it. That is what I am going to do for my wedding. The removal is really easy too.

This is my Shellac photo 2885942-1


This is my Shellac mani! I love Shellac because it strengthens my nails and it doesn't chip for at least 2 weeks. This color is Hot Chilis! I suggest it to all my friends and family because it is the BEST!

My sister is obsessed. She will never go back to polish, gel or acrylic. Never chips or smudges. Its awesome. I'm going to get my toes done and if I can gain length by the wedding my fingers but if there broken or cut, Acrylic it has to be.
