Winter is officially here and what better way to cheer yourself up than a gorgeous nail makeover! Available at both of our chic walk in salons at Highcross Shopping Centre, Leicester and Westgate Arcade, Peterborough, BBs Beauty & Brows are delighted to offer CND Shellac Nails to all. Ever growing in popularity, Shellac Gel Nails are fast becoming one of the most sought after nail makeovers and it’s clear to see why.

With a wide range of colours available, including some really funky style including the option of glitter brushed finishes, our trained and knowledgeable nail technicians are able to give you the nails you’ve been longing for this winter! But what are some of the perks to having Shellac nails done at BBs Beauty & Brows?

Included within the various benefits, Shellac gel nails offer a high shine finish for 14 days+. When compared to other types of nails, Shellac nails aren’t prone to chipping or peeling which is always a bonus when you are time starved and want to have beautiful looking nails for as long as possible.

What’s more, there is no chipping, smudging or peeling and there’s no requirement to remove or re-apply every few days like regular nail polish because it looks fantastic, right from day one. This factor alone makes Shellac gel nails a very attractive option to many- one appointment every two weeks, and perfect nails every time- sounds like a fantastic choice to us! And for those thinking about jetting off for a last minute holiday this winter, or attending a special event or party this festive period, Shellac nails are ideal as they easily last up to two weeks, without the stress of needing to reapply and touch up, meaning you’ll have more time to sit back, relax and enjoy yourself!

But don’t just take our word for it, Shellac themselves advertise their nails with the following tagline ‘on like polish, wears like gel, off in minutes (really!) and they certainly live up to their slogan. While Shellac gel nails looks and feels like a polish, it definitely dries in a different way than conventional nail polish. When you choose to come to BBs Beauty & Brows, our expert team use a high quality CND Shellac UV lamp to properly cure your chosen colour and give you the luscious, high shine effect you are looking for.

Next, when looking at the tagline ‘wears like gel’, what this actually means is that with the right care and attention, Shellac gel nails can last up to 14 days without peeling, chipping and smudging. Obviously each part of this scenario is fantastic but the no smudge element is particularly fab especially due to the fact that as soon as our manicures are complete, everything is 100% completely dry unlike a traditional polish. What this means for you is that you no longer need to walk around waiving your hands through the air in an attempt to dry the polish as fast as possible.

Lastly, ‘off in minutes (really!) is another benefit of Shellac gel nails over other types. Due to the very nature of the ingredients within the special formula, the removal of the gel nail formula is simple, fast and painless. You’ll find you won’t be able to remove the Shellac formula as you would a traditional nail polish but with the correct equipment, our trained nail technicians will be able to professionally remove old gel nails in a matter of minutes and ensure that your own nails underneath are kept in as best condition as possible with no damage, ready for your next chosen colour choice.

Taking all of this into consideration it is clear to see that Shellac gel nails are the perfect choice for many. And if truth be told, Shellac gel nails can really only be applied by trained professionals if you are searching for perfect looking nails this winter- let us take the hassle out of achieving gorgeous nails by getting in touch today and booking yourself in for an appointment.
