Both manicures are beautiful and go with any style, this will depend a lot on your taste.

Shellac manicure is a mixture of different ingredients which are: nail polish and gel, and it will help you get the celebrity manicure look you want. 

Its consistency is thinner than most manicures, so it will stay on all day and look great all night. 

Plus, with the Shellac manicure, you no longer have to worry about dry, cracked nails chipping. 

Shellac manicure is a very popular blend, as it is easy to apply and is available in a wide variety of polish colors.

It has the same feel as traditional polish, but with greater strength and flexibility. 

It gives nails incredible strength and protects them from the elements. It also provides a shine similar to liquid manicure, but with maximum durability and versatility.

The traditional manicure is very similar to shellac because it is done with any color polish and you can have any design, the difference is that these do not have gel and therefore are less resistant.

A shellac manicure is a wonderful way to enhance the appearance of your nails and remove any unsightly or unattractive nail conditions. 

The first step in what is a shellac manicure is to apply a natural base coat to your nails. 

The base coat will help the color last longer and make the entire process go smoothly. 

This all-natural base coat should be applied by a professional technician, not at home.

Shellac manicure usually uses the products that are used to make the nails grow out and last longer are usually stronger than the products used for acrylics.

What is a traditional manicure?

A traditional manicure is when special products are used to coat the nails and shape them. 

A traditional manicure usually uses a product such as polish that is applied to the entire nail and then a top coat that is applied to the tips of the nails. 

You can choose any color you want for your nails and even different nail designs.

With a traditional manicure, you are more likely to get the look you want in less time.

Everything you need to remove the cuticle:

  • cuticle nipper
  • cuticle oil to moisturize and add vitamins to the skin

Nail files

It is very important to use the nail file not only to file the nail to the level and style you want, but also to file along the surface of the nail so that the material adheres better.

Wooden stick

If you have excess paint on the skin of the nail, use the stick, absorbent cotton and acetone to remove it.

Nail gel

This is the one that is linked with the normal nail polish to make the paint more durable.

UV light lamp

It is very important to be able to dry the gel of the permanent painting and to give a more beautiful finish to the nails.

Moisturizing and moisturizing lotion

The last step would be to moisturize and hydrate your hands, cuticles and nails to make them look shinier and more beautiful.

Materials for a traditional manicure

All of this boils down to one important fact: shellac manicures will last longer than other types of nail designs because of the way they are made and they are more durable. 

Many people are hesitant to get a shellac manicure because they fear that the process will damage their nails. The key is that they only have to have it done once or twice a year to get the best results.

The traditional manicure, although easier to damage than shellac, can be made more durable if you do more than two coats of polish and at least one gloss. Also this type of polish is less damaging to the natural nail.

A traditional manicure usually includes exfoliation, shaping and painting of the natural nails.

However, the traditional manicure is also very pretty, although it tends to be less durable.

This means that you can basically keep using the Shellac manicure and not have to worry about having to replace it for the next three weeks.

It is very important that you leave your hands in the hands of professionals and at Salon Deauville we are specialists in the area of beauty.
