Before you embark on your journey to the perfect nails with the best manicure in London, we’ve got all your questions covered:
A shellac manicure sits in between a normal manicure and a gel manicure and is designed to last for two weeks without chipping.
It’s patented by a company called CND and has become increasingly popular due to its ability to last longer than a regular manicure without damaging your natural nails over time, which some treatments like gel and acrylic can do.
A full set manicure usually includes the addition of fake nails, whether gel or acrylic.
Rather than working on and shaping your real nails, a full set generally involves adding artificial tips or a pre-painted set to your existing nails. This can be done for a number of reasons, including added strength and durability, or for aesthetic reasons.
Just because you have short nails, it doesn’t mean you can’t have great nails.
