  1. Abby,
    What indications are you having that the top coat did not harden? Are you curing it in the CND lamp for 2 minutes?

    My manicurist complains of struggling with the curing of darker Shellac colours on the thumbs. I have had wrinkling on the thumbs every time I have had a dark colour applied. I am sure she is doing everything right, i.e. prepping the nails and curing for the right amount of time. Any advice?

  4. Marqi,
    It is safe, but I have found that with extremely young girls while it will last longer than polish it does not last 14 days due to their activities and habits.

    Wrinkling tends to be due to a too thick application of the Shellac.

    l have been using the rock royalty and have a problem with the tip peeling, following all instructions and doing thin layers. Should darker colure be cured for longer? Any advice greatly appreciated.

    Hi. I have been using shellac for quite some time now and i absolutly love this product. My question is, do you have an “at-home” care sheet? If so, I am very interested so i can share this information with my guests. Also, do’s and don’ts at home. Thanks!

  7. Donna,
    Make sure that when you seal the edge you don’t leave a small ledge of thickness, also don’t go under the nail. Dark colors do not need to cure longer, they just need to be well mixed and applied thin, see if this video helps:

    There is not an official at home sheet, the main things they need to do is avoid chemical and water exposure by wearing gloves for cleaning and dishes, as well as conditioning the nails daily with Solar Oil.
