The results are nothing short of sensational: softer, smoother, younger looking hands and feet that improve with continuous use! OPI Gel Color Manicure OPI Gel Color is another highly popular manicure treatment. The process of getting OPI Gel Color manicure is similar to the Shellac and Gelish manicure, after each coat of polish applied to your nails; it will be hardened under the UV lamp. Not all colors and shades are available with OPI that you can get with regular lines. But they do have a good range of colors (200+ color line features some of our favorite OPI shades such as Linkin Park After Dark and Big Apple Red) and different colors can be mixed to bring in new shades and colors. OPI Gel Color removal requires you to soak your nails in a bowl of Acetone. Usually the top gel layer is first scratched by a nail file to make acetone soak in faster. After soaking your nail in Acetone a cuticle pusher is used to remove the flakes of gel from the nails. The process usually takes 10-15 minutes and is done in cycles to remove all the layers off. OPI Gel Color manicure is long lasting, if you want to change your nail color too often, these are probably not the best option for you. OPI GelColor manicure offers nail polish for 14 days plus without a chip or any wear. Simply affordable, lasts for a long time and gives your nails the charm you wanted. Shellac Nails FAQ - Shellac vs. Gelish Are you looking for information on Shellac Nails? We have got it! Below is a FAQ written by nail artist, Hillary Fry. She answers some of the most frequently asked Shellac questions. What is Shellac? Shellac is the brand name for a new, patent pending nail product created by Creative Nail Design. It is a hybrid, meaning half nail polish, half gel. The product is thin and strong enough to be applied similarly to nail polish, but it is cured in a way that gives it great flexibility and durability. It also has the incredible shine associated only with gel nails. Who is Shellac best suited for? Shellac is for people who want to maintain natural nails. The formulation looks as good from day 1 to day 14, but does not appear to damage nail beds. Who is Shellac least suited for? Those looking to lengthen their nails. You cannot use Shellac to create a longer nail. Also, Shellac is not for clients with extremely damaged nail beds, split or peeling nails. It is best to get on a corrective program with your manicurist before thinking about Shellac. If your nail is peeling off, it will take Shellac with it. How is Shellac different from the traditional polish manicure? Typical nail polish dries by evaporation, which means your manicure is not cured until 2-3 hours after your service. Think about it – most of your manicure time is spent waiting for polish to dry. But Shellac is cured by UV light, and within minutes. Your nails are completely dry by the time your manicure is over, and strong enough to withstand accidental knocks. It acts like a plasticized coating, suitable as a long lasting polish. How is a Shellac service different from traditional nail enhancements (fake nails)? Drills are never used or needed with Shellac, and removal does not leave nails dry, thin, possibly torn. Can you apply Shellac at home? No, Shellac can only be applied by a licensed, trained manicurist. Improper tools or techniques will give a less than desirable result with Shellac. Are the UV rays from the lamp dangerous? I began researching this back in February. Standard use of the product (every 2 – 3 weeks) is minimal, but there is no real data. Use sunscreen if concerned. (I recommend Neutrogena pure & free baby, spf 60+ or Renee Rouleau Daily Protection SPF 30). Wash off or wear out after service. Sunscreen for your hands is a good thing anyway. Can you take Shellac off at home? You can. It requires the use of 100% acetone. Removal at home can be done; proper removal is only 10 minutes overall. However, removal at the salon very minimally increases the time and may be less of an inconvenience for you. Wait, what is wrong with artificial nails? On the whole, nothing. But as a manicurist and proponent of natural and organics, there is nothing is more exciting for me than seeing natural nails on a client. While I love the creativity made possible through gel nails or liquid & powder, I think artificial nails are often used to mask a nail problem (peeling, splitting, flexible) when a focused regiment can improve the condition. As a former skincare formulator, the most rewarding part of my job is identifying clients’ troublespots, and working out a program to bring the hands, feet and nails to the point of perfection. Knowing Shellac can withstand even the rigors of salon life, the focus for the everyday woman can be more on care and maintenance of skin and nails - leaving perfect polish in the hands of Shellac. Deluxe Manicure and Pedicure: Deluxe Manicure/Pedicure is a facial-quality system. It is so luxurious and clinically effective. It transforms ordinary services into an extraordinary spa experience. The results are nothing short of sensational: softer, smoother, younger looking hands and feet that improve with continuous use! Deluxe Pedicure Procedure: Relaxing soak: A stimulating, cleansing mineral footbath that reduces inflammation as it deodorizes and soften feet. Toenails trimming and filing: To make the shape looks perfect. Callus softening: A.H.A. callus softener is applied to remove callused areas. Cuticle detailing: Pushing and trimming cuticles, cleaning and buffering the nail plates. Exfoliation: Warming, raw sugar A.H.A. foot scrub or sea salt foot scrub is applied to polish, smooth, and refine skin to a healthy glow. Hydration: Cooling mineral clay foot mask or protective volcanic clay foot mask is applied to enrich vitamins and minerals to deep condition skin. Massage: Hydrating lotion with soothing moisturizer, rich in vitamins and minerals is applied in order to shield the skin with a satin finish. Finish with OPI Nail Lacquer ….....

Shellac vs. Gelish Author: Jessica Smith | Posted in Beauty There are really only two hybrid nail polishes that can compete: Harmony Gelish and CND Shellac. Let us discover how they stack up against each other. Retail Value The retail value of CND is very different from Harmony once several factors are applied. For instance, the retail value is roughly the same when the polishes are applied at a nail shop. However, for the do-it-your-selfer, the retail value is totally different. The retail value of Harmony is far less than CND . So Harmony wins this one. Amount of Colors To Choose From When it comes to the amount of colors to choose from, both CND and Harmony are lacking. Currently, they only have 30 (Shellac) and 78 (Gelish) colors each. That pales in comparison to brands like OPI and China Glaze. When it comes to colors, both CND and Harmony lose. How easy is it to apply? This is a tough question. The reason is because both Shellac and Gelish have pros and cons. Shellac requires far less steps during the application process. However it requires a far longer curing time under the UV lamp. There is no clear winner here. How long does it last? Both polishes claim to last up to 2 weeks. That is a really long time! Here is the real difference: Harmony is a true gel nail polish and CND is a hybrid. Obviously, a hybrid is not going to be as tough as a gel. But then again, a hybrid is not going to be as tough to remove as a gel either! As long as you can stand the longer time it takes to remove Harmony, I would say that it is the slight winner. Speaking of removal time Again, Gelish is slightly harder to remove because of its gel nail polish formulation. It does require some scraping prior to removal and a lot of people do not like that. Branding CND has done a great job launching an advertising campaign, which may mean that clients will come in looking for a Shellac application. This will mean higher profit margins for nail techs. However, Harmony maintains that they have restricted their brands distribution channels to salons only in an effort to inhibit knockoffs and fakes from diluting their market. This means clients can trust that their product application is the real deal. Winner: Tie Grand Finale I like Gelish better. Yes, it has its flaws, but I think it has more pros than cons in the long run.

Artificial Nails Acrylic Powder Gel Solar Gel Seaweed Gel Single Strand Eyelash Extensions Single lashes are applied one on one directly to your own natural lashes. Single eyelash extensions look more natural. Our adhesive permanently attaches the extension to your own lashes and not your skin. As your eyelash grows from 30 - 90 days, the extensions will fall out with your natural lash and replaced by new younger lashes. Single lashes take about 1.5 - 2 hours to apply. To maintain the full look, refills are required between 2-4 weeks. Semi (Cluster) Eyelash Extensions Semi lashes stay on longer than single lashes. Semi does not have the same natural look but a more dramatic, thick mascara look. These synthetic lashes is applied with the same adhesive that we use to apply the single lashes. It is also applied directly to your own natural lashes. Semi lashes take about 45 min - 1 hour to apply. Just like singles, touch ups is recommended between 2-4 weeks.
