Ian McEwan once said,“You can tell a lot from a person’s nails. When a life starts to unravel, they’re among the first to go.” I don’t know about you, but I definitely agree with McEwan. I understand how frustrating it is to take care of your nails every few days because they begin to chip due to typing, opening a soda, washing dishes, and everything in between those moments. However, if I told you there is a 14 day manicure that you can get and it wouldn’t chip, would you believe me?
Shellac is commonly referred to as gel nail polish. It is thin and strong and applied similarly to regular nail polish, but it is cured differently. Shellac is more durable and flexible than regular nail polish. Did I mention you get an amazing shine for 14 days that regular polish will not give you? Aaaaamazing!
Benefits of a Shellac Manicure
- No chipping (major selling point!)
- Protects brittle and short nails (every girls’ downfall)
- Last 14 days (low maintenance)
- Heavier polish
- Great for long nails and short
- Less damage because the surface is protected
- Brilliant shine
- Good for people who use their hands and nails daily. (I shall not fear washing dishes!)
What to Expect
At Bellezza Spa, we start the Shellac Manicure similar to a regular manicure. Our aesthetician will prepare a soothing soak treatment, exfoliate, buff, and prepare your nails for Shellac nail polish. After your nails have been properly prepped, our aesthetician will apply the gel polish. Now, before you start going, “ugh, now to wait a million years for my polish to dry,” I must tell you about the best part…Shellac is cured with ultraviolet light. It will take just a few minutes for the manicure to be absolutely dry! Saving time and money in the long run!
Why Shellac Over Regular?
Simple—we do not slow down for anything. Our daily grind involves so many hazards that may cause chipping, brittle nails, or even cracking (ouch!).

And let’s be realistic, your Instagram account will look amazing when you take a picture of your coffee cup with those glamorous nails! Sold yet?
