Do shellac nails ruin your nails?

In fact, experts claim there are several points in the gel/shellac process that not only have the potential to damage your nails and nail beds (acetone, anyone?), but could also put your health at risk. Overzealous nail filing to prepare the nail for layers of gel can expose new skin to chemicals and infections.

How long do Shellac Nails last?

About two weeks. Shellac was the first hybrid polish, produced by CND, and you can expect manicures to last about two weeks. Some may find that the chip-free finish lasts longer than this, but it's recommended that you get them removed after 14 days as by this time your own nail will have started to grow out.

Is CND Vinylux the same as Shellac?

Vinylux is designed to work like a regular polish; no lamp needed, and colors can be mixed together to create new colors. Shellac provides 14+ day wear, high gloss shine, zero dry time, and removal in 5 minutes with a moisturizing acetone remover. CND Shellac is a ‘genuine hybrid’ UV gel polish.

That means its formula is similar to a traditional nail polish (like Rimmel, or Revlon). so it can be applied more thinly. It looks like a classic polish but has the benefits of UV gel (dries instantly, is extra glossy and lasts for two weeks). The thinner application means removal takes around five minutes, max.
