Having your nails professionally manicured can be a frustrating process. If you go with acrylics, you risk ruining your nails and having to wait forever for them to grow out. Manicuring natural nails looks nice, but on occasion, the polish chips the second you walk out the door. Some salons offer gel nail polish which is tougher and more chip resistant, but it is hard to remove and can also damage your nails. For women with natural nails who don’t want to worry about mani maintenance, there is the option of shellac nail manicures. Applied in a series of layers that are set with a UV bulb, shellac manicures are easy on nails, chip resistant, free of harsh chemicals and easy to remove. Here are salons in the Denver area that offer official CND Shellac manicures.
