Shellac for Del Mar

Shellac has quickly swept Del Mar as the latest nail care sensation. At Salon Mirror Mirror, we believe this is for good reason, since shellac has so many positive qualities. For your convenience, we’ve outlined some information about shellac that can be useful if you have been considering making it an addition to your nail care routine.

What is a Shellac Manicure?

A shellac manicure is a durable nail polish treatment which incorporates the strength and high-shine of gel with the natural look and flexibility of regular nail polish. The great thing about shellac is that it does not require the client to have their nails filed for the application of the product. This is great for anyone who has thin, dry and brittle nails that could benefit from having an extra layer over their natural nails.

The Main Benefits of Shellac include:

  • It is a durable product that does not chip.
  • It lasts longer than regular nail polish and acrylic, and stays fresh for up to three weeks.
  • It is a high-shine product.
  • It promotes nail growth and good health by forming a protective layer over the natural nail.

Types of Clients Who Love Shellac Nails:

Service industry workers

Having clean, well-manicured nails is very important in a job where you are dealing with food and customers. Shellac polish will keep your nails neat and put together without chipping, helping you look good for work.

Busy moms

At Salon Mirror Mirror, we know that many of our valued Del Mar clients are busy moms who do not have a lot of spare time to devote to their beauty routine. For these clients, we always suggest investing in a shellac manicure. A shellac manicure will stay strong for up to three weeks, allowing you to save money and to spend more time with your family and less time at the salon.

Retail industry workers

A shellac manicure is a great option for anyone who works in the retail industry as its anti-chipping qualities and high-shine suit the demands of the retail industry. At retail jobs, it is always important to have clean, manicured nails. Shellac offers an affordable option for these industries because it lasts for up to three weeks so you won’t need to keep booking nail appointments or frequent polish changes.


Shellac is a great option for any of our Del Mar clients who want a gorgeous, long-lasting manicure at an affordable price. Shellac is a favorite at our salon, and we promise you that you will not be disappointed with your choice to try it out!
