Perfect nails

Debbie Princeton tests a set of Shellac Nails from Jack Cruise at Vallenders Salon

Maintaining immaculate nails is the bane of many a woman’s life and one only too frequently ends a special night out with gnawed looking paws as one chip leads to another.

The delightful Jack Cruise who works at Vallenders Salon in Suffolk Parade, is a trained Shellac Nail technician.

What is Shellac Nails?
Shellac is a nail product that lasts for at least 14 days without chipping, scratching, or smudging. Lasting 14 days is an accomplishment all by itself but shellac does even more. Many women have noticed that their nails are stronger and healthier after using shellac. Not only does it not damage your nail, it improves your nails health.

The Shellac Nails Application Process?
The process of applying the nail colour is rapid, layering a base coat, varnish and top coat using a lamp to dry each coat in between. One will expect to receive a perfect set of fully-dried finger nails within about 20-25 minutes with feet taking a little longer.

I have now had my Shellac nails for 17 days and thankfully they are still immaculate – thanks Jack!
