An important but often neglected part of your beauty routine is regular manicures. Your hands are the most exposed and hardest working parts of your body, but we don’t always take the time to care for them properly. Manicures help to keep your skin and nails healthy despite the abuse we put them through. A no-chip manicure is an excellent option for your hard-working nails, and the wonderfully talented nail technicians at Teddie Kossof are here to help you with that. Let’s take a look at why a shellac manicure might be the best choice for you.
Lasts Longer Than Other Manicure Options
If you’re investing your hard-earned money and valuable time into a manicure you want it to last as long as possible, right? This is where a shellac manicure can help. Shellac is chip resistant and doesn’t peel like regular polish. So you don’t require constant touch-ups to keep your nails looking great. Shellac combines gel and polish giving you an incredibly glossy finish that is as durable as it is gorgeous.
Provides Strength to Protect Thin Weak Nails
If your nails are thin or weak and peel or break easily, a shellac manicure will help strengthen them. With the protection the shellac provides along with the added strength, your nails will have the ability to grow longer than they ever could on their own. And there is no wait time to resume your usual activities when you leave the salon. This is because the shellac is dried quickly with the use of a UV light to ensure they are fully set before you leave the chair.
Less Maintenance Required
Some manicures require special care and constant maintenance. Due to chips, peeling, and nail growth, they need regular touch-ups, sometimes daily. This can be expensive and take a big bite out of your schedule. Who has time for that? Because they are so resistant to breaking, chipping, and peeling, shellac nails are really your best option for low maintenance nails.
Tips to Help Your New Nails Last Longer
If you take a few simple precautions such as wearing gloves for cleaning or washing dishes and don’t use your nails as a scraper or a screwdriver, your manicure should last for two weeks before requiring any maintenance at all. If your profession or hobbies require a little extra protection you can ask your nail technician to recommend a clear coat that you can apply once per week for an added layer of protection. Be sure to keep your hands and nails clean and moisturized as well to help your manicure stay looking fresh until your next appointment.
