The Stel­lar trial SNS nails

Sunday Herald Sun - Stellar - - Beauty -

So, you want the ben­e­fits of a shel­lac man­i­cure – zero dry­ing time, a wide range of colours and chip-free dura­bil­ity mea­sured in weeks rather than days – but with­out the draw­backs? Well, why not just ask for choco­late that burns kilo­joules while you’re at it?

But as it hap­pens, the unique for­mu­la­tion of SNS (Sig­na­ture Nail Sys­tems) might just de­liver the per­fect com­pro­mise. Us­ing a dip­ping pow­der sys­tem, nail beds are coated in the strength­en­ing for­mula be­fore a bond­ing top coat is ap­plied, but with­out UV light.

With a less in­va­sive re­moval process than with gel man­i­cures, strong nat­u­ral nails will grow quickly un­der­neath SNS. It can be time-con­sum­ing, but with a wear­ing time of up to three weeks, it’s an in­vest­ment worth nail­ing.
