We are sure you will love your CND Shellac Nails from Reflections beauty. CND Shellac expect your nails to last flawlessly for at least 14 days as long as you give them just a little care and attention.
CND Shellac nails perform extremely well with normal wear and tear, but you do need to take care of them by adding a little protection to your nails when undertaking tough jobs like household cleaning and gardening, or with hobbies that are hard on your hands or if you are going to be using harsh chemical products it is best to be wearing gloves; doing these things without protection can spoil your Shellac service.
If you do happen to cause some damage to the Shellac coating and see any lifting or peeling please do NOT pick or pull at the lifted area, as this will cause the lifting to increase and could even damage your natural nail. Just call us at Reflections so that we can check the nail and see what repairs are needed. Please note there is a small charge for repairs.
If you are going on holiday please check carefully the sun tan oils or insect repellent solutions you are using as some these products contain DEET which is one thing that will cause a lot of damage to the Shellac colour coat
Do try and use Solar Oil at least twice a day especially at night before going to bed. We highly recommend CND Shellac Solar Oil which is available at a small cost from us. We also suggest CND hand and body lotion. Regular use of CND aftercare products will help to prolong the life of your Shellac and keep your natural nails and the skin surrounding them healthy, moisturised and flexible.
If you wish to temporarily change the colour of your nails whilst wearing Shellac you can use nail enamel over the Shellac but please note it is very important to use an Acetone Free Remover when removing nail polish.
Depending on your life-style and activities, your CND Shellac nails should only need fortnightly or three weekly maintenance. At that time we will either re-Shellac your nails remove existing Shellac and applying a fresh new colour or remove the Shellac completely which takes approximately 10 minutes. If you are having your Shellac removed it is always best to have this done professionally by us at Reflections or by using the special Shellac removal treatment.
As a fully certified CND nail technician let me share with you how much I love Solar Oil and the many benefits of this miracle in a bottle. It is great for your nails, and has many other uses too… this CND Solar Oil is a miraculous award winning product.
It has been a favourite amongst nail technicians and manicurists ever since it was created in the 1980′s. Solar Oil is made from a blend of ingredients, including Jojoba oil, Sweet Almond oil and Vitamin E oil which has been specially formulated to work with any CND nail enhancement system, CND Retention+ Enhancement, Brisa Lite Smoothing Gel and Shellac.
This miracle product was designed to penetrate through the enhancements to the nail plate, allowing your nails to not only look good, but feel good too.
Using Solar Oil is an important conditioning treatment for your nails. When you have nail enhancements it promotes the well being of your natural nails and will prolong the best condition of your enhancements.
The use of Solar Oil is important to use on your natural nails. The vitamin rich oil will penetrate through to the nail plate and beyond, allowing your nails to be flexible, hydrated and nourished, keeping your nails protected to prevent the cause of brittle nails which can lead to chipping.
Solar Oil is best applied at least twice a day and it is VERY important to do so at bed time, so that it will soak into your nails and surrounding skin to replace any moisture (oils) that have been lost during the day. As we get older the ability to produce natural oils in our bodies slows down, so the additional use of Solar Oil will benefit you with perfect well conditioned nails. So, simply make it part of your bedtime routine. Simply apply a small amount to each finger nail and gently massage it in.
