Shellac Nails in Tampa
Do your DIY manicures last only a few days before you find yourself re-applying another coat of polish? If you’re sick of constant chipping getting in the way of your nail game, shellac nails can help you keep your chosen color longer.
Shellac nails typically last 10-14 days, but can last for up to one month without chipping. Though if you’re in it for the long haul, be advised that due to nail growth, fill ins may be required after week two.

How Can I Keep My Shellac Nails Looking Their Best?
Shellac nails (also known as a gel manicure) use a long-lasting, durable polish cured under UV light. Unlike acrylics, gel polish cannot be used to lengthen nails, so you should be sure to go to your appointment with your nails the desired length.
Though salons brag about the durability of shellac nails, they are not invincible. To keep your nails lasting into the second, third, or even fourth week, be sure to keep your hands and nails moisturized. Cuticle oil goes a long way in ensuring your nails stay as beautiful as they look when you leave the salon. These manicures, while long-lasting, are still sensitive to cleaning chemicals and pool chemicals, so to keep your nails in top condition, wear gloves to avoid exposing your nails (and hands) to harmful materials.
Clients should also keep in mind that removing or changing shellac nails requires a trip back to the nail salon for a dip in a special acetone solution designed to remove the polish. Removing the polish on their own can leave customers with damaged nail beds and peeling nails.
How Long is an Appointment for Shellac Nails?
