Shellacked nails are gorgeous and a great secret for busy women. But if you get them, make sure to wear sunscreen or some sort of protective glove with the fingertips cut off during the “curing” process. You may have to work with your manicurist to iron out the details of how this could be done, but it will be worth it. Almost all nail salons use UV curing light machines to cure the shellac. If anyone tells you it won’t harm your skin, they are 100% wrong!!!! It’s like a mini tanning bed for your hands! A woman’s hands often show her age so why would anyone want to accelerate nature? UV light causes skin cancer and photoaging—YUCK!!!
