The Stellar trial SNS nails
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.
