Shellac manicures are popular for their chip-resistant, durable and long-lasting nature, making them a preferred choice for individuals who want a polished look that endures daily activities. With a wide range of colours, from classic shades to bold, trendy and bright, this allows individuals to customize their manicure according to their preferences.  “Shellac” specifically refers to a brand of gel polish developed by CND. Similar products from other brands may be referred to as a gel polish/ gel manicure. 

Our nail services consist of CND Shellac with an add on of foils or glitter, and option of shellac removal when previously applied at Ivy.
