Pros/Cons of Shellac Nail Polish

20 Apr

Recently I have been hooked on Shellac nail polish. I have heard both good and bad things about it so I decide to put together a pros and cons list!


-Smudge proof

-Last for weeks without chipping

-Long-lasting high shine

-Makes weak nails rock solid


-Improper removal can result in nail/skin damage

-Shellac polish is more expensive than regular nail polish

-Shellac has to be cure under a UV light, which can dry out your nail beds

-Color often changes when exposed to sunlight

Even after maikng this pros and cons list, I am still a shellac lover! If you’ve never gotten a shellac manicure before make sure you do your research and go to a reputable salon with licenced professionals to ensure you get the most for your money. Below is a link to a YouTube video of a shellac manicure so you know what to expect before you go get your own!
