Best Shellac Manicures In North Bay

Shellac manicures have increased in popularity in the last three years due to the amazing finishes they provide. The applied color usually lasts between two to three weeks without chipping and remains shiny throughout. CND Shellac, which is part polish and part gel, paints on like any other polish but when it dries, it does so under a UV light with little drying time to result in a flawless layer of color. To remove, use the CND wraps on your nails and watch the color easily come off. The gentle remover does not damage the nail or skin around them, unlike many other nail color applications. For some of the best shellac manicures in the North Bay, make an appointment at one of the below salons and get yourself wondering why it took you so long to try this nail revolution out.
