Shellac is a modern cosmetic procedure that helps to make nails stronger and more beautiful. But this method of strengthening also has its drawbacks.
Shellac is a biogel-based decorative coating. It is very often used to create a natural manicure, as it creates an even coating of any shade. This procedure is ideal for those who want to grow their nails without any problems. When applied to the nail plate, a strong layer is formed, as a result of which the nail does not crack and gradually hardens.
It is very important that the manicure lasts a fairly long period of time - up to three weeks. Therefore, you can calmly do household chores and not be afraid to spoil the appearance of your marigolds.
After applying shellac biogel, the nails acquire a glossy surface.
Even expensive decorative varnishes gradually lose their glossy shine, and the color becomes dull.
Modern manufacturers are constantly developing new shades of shellac. This allows you to choose a shade of nails for every taste and preference of women. While for some women it is preferable to choose natural shades of pastel colors, others tend to stand out from the crowd and choose bright and saturated colors. The assortment is constantly updated depending on the influence of fashion trends.
Such a coating does not harm the nail plate at all, since the composition does not contain formaldehydes and other harmful substances that can damage and destroy the structure. A shellac manicure can be done safely during pregnancy.
Disadvantages of shellac coating
The most significant disadvantage of this procedure is the high cost, therefore, not everyone can afford to constantly cover their nails with modern means. Moreover, the high cost depends on the growth rate of nails. If the nails grow back quickly, they require timely correction, which cannot be done on your own at home.
At a cost, shellac is close to the procedure for nail extension.
The second drawback is considered to be the need to contact a specialist if you want to remove the coating. In order to remove shellac without harm to the nail plate, a professional composition is required, no other means will be able to remove the coating.
Due to the fact that shellac stays on the nails for a long time, the risk of developing fungal diseases may increase. This is due to the fact that when the temperature changes abruptly, the plate deforms and small cracks appear. When interacting with the external environment, harmful bacteria and microorganisms enter, which actively multiply under the shellac layer. To prevent this, it is necessary to monitor hand hygiene and change the decorative coating of nails more often.
