Shellac appeared on the market of goods and services is relatively recent, but despite this fact, this material has already become super-popular, pushing far into the background once fashionable adding gel and acrylic polymers.

To work with this polymer — solid pleasure-despite the rather liquid texture he doesn’t flow on the nail plate and retains a given shape, but it is important to know how to apply shellac (sequence and some of the subtleties of the technique). Meanwhile, there’s nothing complicated about how to apply shellac, step by step instructions goes down to the elementary actions. And the first thing you need to do is to prepare your nails for application of the material, starting with cleaning the old one. On each nail I put a compress in the form of a tampon impregnated with liquid varnish remover, and twist it in foil, leaving at least 10 minutes in this condition. During this time, the increase in temperature and the acetone contained in the solvent will do the trick, then you can safely proceed to the cleansing of the old shellac through the use of special sticks made of plastic or wood. All excess material removed by bafikom, polishing them and the surface of the nail. The next stage involves degreasing of the nail surface with a special tool that is used for removal of dispersion adhesive layer formed after drying each polymer in the UV lamp.

Shellac is good because it can be used for staining the natural nail plate without the use of polymer compounding. However, this does not mean that the material should be applied directly on bare nails even and be fat-free. So, learning how to apply shellac, you must first take care of the quality of his cohesion with the nail plate, otherwise the material will be split and flake after only a few days. To do this, it is highly recommended to use a special base in the form of adhesive acid-free clear gel that is very carefully applied under the cuticle and on the nail, trying not to fall in the area around the nail folds. This layer will need to dry for one minute under a UV lamp, after which you can finally start applying the shellac. Usually this procedure consists of two stages, as even the most pigmented shellac tends to porosity and form an ugly gaps on the nails.

Both layers require a longer drying in the lamp with UV light (two minutes for each layer), despite the fact that after each procedure, necessary to remove the formed dispersion adhesive layer with a degreaser, which is thoroughly impregnated piece of lint-free natural cloth. As to overlapping of design transparent top means it can be used only in the case if we are not talking about matte pastel nail Polish, which has become very popular in recent years. If you need to “seal” gloss shellac, the use of a top transparent gel is to be welcomed, as it helps to fix the pigment on the nails and protect from chipping and peeling. On ready design is applied in a thin layer of transparent top, trying to pay maximum attention to the free edge of the nail plate, and most importantly, its end portion.

After that, the nails are sent to finish the two-minute dry and again removed with a degreaser sticky dispersion, which is always formed after exposure to ultraviolet radiation on the polymer. And if everything was done correctly, then you can wear shellac full one piece can be up to two weeks, which is very convenient.
