Information about Shellac™ nail polish
The differences between Shellac™ and CrystaLac gel polish:
Shellac is the lightest option in our nail polish selection. Long-lasting nail polish looks a lot like traditional nail polish, but the hardening is done under UV light. In this way, aShellac lasts longer than traditional nail polish. The lightness of CrystaLac gel polish is between Shellac and Natural Nail Overlay service. Gel polish already gives a little support and durability to the nail. It can also be used to correct small unevenness of the nail. The polish is still very light and natural-looking.
Shellac is best suited for normal nails that are not particularly worn or strained in everyday life. Gel polish is suitable for normal and weaker and thinner nails. It is also perfectly suited to a more active lifestyle.
Shellac™ polish shades & nail decorations
In our beauty salons, you can find a wide selection of CND’s Shellac polishes. The range of shades includes the so-called basic selection, salon’s own shades and seasonal colors. Please note that not all lacquer shades visible in e.g. social media photos may always be available at all locations, as there may be differences in salon-specific shade selections. Our Shellac service selection also includes decorative all-inclusive polish, which includes the decorations you want. However, we kindly ask you to note that our manicurists are individuals with their own strengths, and there may be differences in decorating skills. If you are looking for a specific style of decoration or a more demanding implementation, we recommend that you check out the work samples of our manicurists on our team page, so that you can find the most suitable nail professional for you.
Changing from one nail service to another
Please note that if you have taken the permanent polish / Shellac in another salon, you must first book an appointment at Blue Lagoon for the “other Shellac polish removal”. Unfortunately, we do not service Shellac / permanent polishes made by another salon.

Changing Shellac™ polish to artificial nails
If you want to change your Shellac polish to artificial nails, you can make an appointment directly for new artificial nails. In connection with the treatment, + 15 € will be charged for changing the service.
Nails chip & split
Dry nails, for example due to the weather or hormonal reasons, can cause nails to dry out and split. Constant washing and disinfecting of hands can also dry hands and nails, which is why it would be good to grease hands. The best friend for dry nails is cuticle oil, which you should remember to use regularly. We do not recommend Shellac for chipping, cracking or flaking nails. Light protection and support can be obtained with gel polish for slightly chipped and cracked nails. Sometimes gel polish can provide the necessary little protection to the nails, which also allows natural nails to get stronger and grow. If the nails are cracking or chipping heavily, or if the problem has lasted for a long time, a Natural Nail Overlay is probably a better option than gel polish. A nail professional will gladly advise you on the most suitable solution for your nails!
Shellac™ polish removal
Shellac is always removed by dissolving, which makes the removal very gentle on the nails. Removal sets designed for home use are also sold to remove Shellac, with which you can also remove Shellac at home. Shellac should never be torn off. Please note that if you have had Shellac applied at another salon, you must first book an appointment at Blue Lagoon for gel polish removal and then for a new Shellac polish. Unfortunately, we do not service Shellac / gel polishes made by another salons.
Strengthen your nails before Shellac™
In connection with Shellac treatment, it is possible to choose IBX treatment as an additional service. The IBX treatment is a keratin treatment for the natural nail that strengthens and repairs the nail. The IBX treatment does not leave an extra layer on the nail, but the treatment is absorbed into the layers of the nail with the help of heat. IBX treatment is an excellent service for flaking natural nails. The use of Dadi Oil cuticle oil extends the durability of Shellac by moisturizing the natural nail and cuticles. We recommend that you always get cuticle oil when having Shellac, so that your nails stay in as good condition as possible.
