Our Hand & Foot Care are top of the line and we specialize in natural nails with the option of Shellac and Gelish. Depending on your tastes and your type of nails we will recommend one or the other. If you are not sure about the actual difference between these two, keep reading so you can clear out all your doubts.


It’s a lie that one is better than the other, at the end it’s all a matter of taste. There are many myths and rumors around these two brands and we would like to clear things up so you can be informed and finally make a final decision.


The main thing you need to know is that Shellac doesn’t require buffing before the application or to remove it. This is important because not everyone withstands buffing and this is a process that should be performed preferably in stronger nails. That’s why Shellac is also easier to remove and it doesn’t last as long and Gelish nails.


However, the reason why Gelish nails are sometimes recommended for women with weaker nails is because of the impenetrable properties this polish offers. On weakened nails, Gelish acts as a shield that protects them, but the downside is that it’s considerably harder to remove compared to Shellac that can be off your nails in 5 minutes.


There’s this myth going around that every now and then you should take a break from one or the other to let your nails recover their strength and breath, but that’s not true at all! The only reason why you shouldn’t  jump from one manicure directly to the other is because you should hydrate your nails and cuticles with nail oil or other special products. Truth is that both manicures are completely safe and won’t do any harm in the long run.


We’ve heard about some people’s concern regarding the use of UV lamps to seal and dry both treatments, but this final process is completely safe. Modern LED UV lamps work way faster than a few years ago and in comparison, exposing your nails and fingers to this lamps equals the exposure of only a couple of minutes under the sunlight. Nevertheless, using sunscreen every day should be a habit for everyone and not only in your face but in your arms and hands as well!


If you have any more doubts about these manicures, you can come and visit our Studio any time and talk directly to one of our Nail Specialist to clear all you doubts.
