Beware the fake Shellac!

This mornings episode of Fake Britain on BBC1 exposed the dangerous practice of salons offering faux gel nails, charging premium prices for pretend Shellac.

The original UV gel polish, CND Shellac, was launched in 2010 and changed the mani game forever. Set under UV lights these polishes stay chip-free and uber-glossy for a minimum of two weeks

The BBC documentary, revealed that fake versions from China have worked their way into UK salons throughout the country and – complete with CND branding – reveal real damage to women’s nails when the polish is removed, some of which can take up to an hour and a half due to the inferior formulas. Eek!

Untrained salon staff are not only using potentially dangerous products but are also incorrectly operating the UV lamps and misinforming customers with bad (or no) aftercare advice

Here at The Beauty Boutique we pride ourselves on the fact that we only use the best and most reputable brands including Shellac, HD Brows, Nouveau  and many more!
