It comes off quite easily and no acetone. CND makes a product called Solar Oil. Use this times a day and you will notice a huge improvement. I pour straight acetone into a glass bowl at home and wa-lah, they come right off. Just like you my fingers would itch for days. Hope you get a chance to treat yourself soon! A lovely bit of sparkle! For the days that I experienced this itch I would take antihistamines.
I was enticed by the gorgeous interior, the no-fume policy, and the fact that it is full-service. About a week or so after the manicure the skin around some of my nails was bubbling and then it would peel. She shows how to glitterize, foil and all kinds of wonderful things to make nails fun. Id love to try the pale beigey pink next Love the dark colors.
As for removal its just a pad soaked in acetone based polish remover ,wrap each finger in foil and wait for it to work. Despite how fast my nails grow, they are very thin, so they are pliable even with the Shellac on. I love Shellac! If you do continue to use the product, when you get ready to remove color, just start peeling at cuticle. I really want them to get it right. I personally use straight jojoba oil and am thrilled with the improvements to my skin and nails.
Any chance you would be interested in selling yours instead of tossing it? I love Shellac and Gelish manicures! I ended up investing in Gelish and learning how to do it myself. Great post!

Okay, so the cuticles are a little yucky. Hubby bought me all the supplies to do it myself from ebay and amazon. It can be put on top of any color and it brings the bling to it! The above first photo was how it looked right when I got back in the car from the salon. Omg Is this because you have formed an allergy to the CND polish? Will throw it away.
Not black, not purple…red. And below, after nearly 3 weeks of continuous, hard-on-my-nails, wear:.
Shellac is great for color layering. Love to hear your thoughts and favorite Shellac colors! It chipped on me and it cracked actually. Thanks for this post Kristina! Rock royalty is a dark purple — my 3rd choice. I felt like this broke the curse! I have been getting shellac manicures for 9 months at a nail salon. Wish they made a shimmery burnt orange or a dark shimmery blue. I love that it adds strength to my nails without the damage of acrylic.
As to your issue with the damage to your nails…there are a few easy things to do that will make your nails good as new in no time. See if you can find the Good Housekeeping article on shellac nails. Hope this helps…. They have a color called Purple Purple. I will tell you the only reasons why you should not get a Shellac or any long wearing manicure, for that matter, including Axxium :.
It looks like I have become allergic to this product.
Shop with confidence
I just write what I want! Hey, mine have been a lot worse in the past—just trust me on that one. I tried OPI Axxium once during summer before a vacation because there was a groupon for it. She uses Shellac and I just amend it for Gelish.
I loved it, up until its removal. She is amazing! Boy, oh boy, was I wrong.
Well, it turns out that the thicker your Axxium manicure is, the less stable it is — something I learned firsthand when the hardened gel would start to separate from my nail after about a week or so. I mean itch like you nerver itched. I tried to tough it out and my nearly lost all my nails! Loved CND. Used it for a year THEN the problems started. Hope this helps, Erica. I have so many nail polishes- I hate that they will all be wasted when I begin using CND shellac only. They also have a color called Zillionaire. I would also keep rubbing hand cream on that contained aloe.
I checked at sally beauty supply here in Canada and it was ridiculous what they were charging for the tiny bottles. FingerNailfixer is wonderful.
I was beside myself with this itch. I stopped doing them altogether. Its very pretty.
Used opi products for sale compared from ebay, craigslist, amazon,
I had a gelish manicure done once and i was in love. I recently tried Shellac and that product is great! Asphalt is a dark grey and is fun for winter. I think they do make those colors. About a month ago the problem started. Have you ever tried a long-wear manicure like Shellac or Axxium?
I chose a classic red Wildfire first because red polish alwayswithout fail chips on me in less than 24 hours. If I did my nails tonightmy fingers would itch for days.
I hope they correct the formula take out the carcinogen. Fedora is my favorite.
How long cosmetics are fresh?
Personally i like a french manicure and after doing it twice id say it looks pretty good lol. They last just under 2 weeks for me because my nails grow insanely fast I take Biotin supplements, could be why but otherwise, they are amazing. Love the product! Be careful.
The itch would be around the nail bed. I am not affiliated in any way with the brands or products mentioned in this post. I had my first shellac manicure recently and LOVED how shiny it was and the fact that you can walk out of the salon and not worry about being careful because it has set straight away. It helped a bit but not entirely.
