Gel Vs. Shellac, What’s the difference?

26 Feb 2016

        When the first brand came out with the No Chip Gel Manicure, they branded the concept with the name Shellac. This essentially helped them stand out from other brands. CND (Creative Nail Designs) was this brand, naming their own line of “gel polish” shellac.  But what’s the difference between the Shellac polish by CND and the “gel” polishes created by brands like OPI & Gelish/Harmony? Basically there isn’t a difference, besides other companies using a more generic name for the polish and technique (Gel). They are both made to last around 14 days and are both cured under a UV or LED lamp. The process for application.

19 Feb 2016

We have all seen the newest trend when we’re out, thick full brows! If you were part of the thin eyebrow trend years ago, you’re probably having trouble getting the full brows you want, which we understand. There are no many ways to map out and carve out even the thinnest brows.

But we will also show you what to do if you don’t have much hair on your brows, of the desired shape. Here is the best way to find where.

How Can I make my regular polish manicure last?

29 Jan 2016

We always recommend a gel polish for the lasting shine and longer wear for women we know are rough on their hands or don’t want the hassle of coming back every couple of days for a new coat of regular polish because their nails have chipped. But for those of us who still like the feel and ease of regular nail polish (being able to take it off with ease and repaint them yourself when ours chips) You wonder what you can do to help make it last just a little longer. First thing you can do to help make your polish last when you do it at home is.

CND has done it again!

15 Dec 2015

From the company who started the Gel or Shellac craze, has come a new treatment for weak and brittle natural nails. The RescueRXx Daily Keratin Treatment! This Product contains Jojoba oil and keratin proteins that bond to your natural nail to help strengthen and protect them. It also has sweet almond oil to nourish the cuticles and skin around the nails as well as your natural nail.  It helps to reduce the “white spots” you see on your nails when they are damaged or brittle from acrylic removal, improper care or the dry harsh weather. So How do you use it? It is recommended that you apply the product to.

Some Things You Should Know Before Getting a Wax!

30 Nov 2015

Thinking of getting a wax with your esthetician, or at your local nail salon? If you’re using an oral or topic Acne Medication you might want to rethink it! Many of us have either experience or had a friend tell us that they got “burned” from getting a wax. This typically is red and shiny, then tends to scab a couple days later. It may look like a burn, but it’s actually not. This mark is often caused because you are using an acne medication, being a cream or a pill it still effects your skin and the way you wax. These medications cause the creation of new skin to.

Thinking of getting Artificial Nails?

29 Nov 2015

Have you been thinking about getting artificial nails but don’t know what kind would be best for you? or just have a few questions about the products? We are here to answer all your nail questions! Artificial nails began in ancient egypt, when women would fashion them onto their nails using ivory, these were used to make the women look wealthy and were held as a symbol of beauty, for those of them with higher status. From there the concept caught fire in Greece where women would glue pistachio shells to their nails to give off the illusion of these artificial and perfect long nails. As the concept traveled women.

Whats the stitch on LED lights?

02 Apr 2014

So ladies, there has been an uproar on LED and UV light when you get that marvelous gel manicure. Good news! After some research, dermatologist and researchers has found that there is limited or low chances of getting cancer from the gel lights. At Nail Theory we use LED lights. In comparison, they are the safer route when using gel polish. They use less light and less penetration than the typical UV light. They are even used to treat sun damage and new collagen. So don’t worry you can still continue with your regular appointments!
