    Why do you have to take it off your fingers if you get it on there before you cure

      Because if it cures with it on your fingers it can cause early lifting.

    I just watched the shellac video. Is the uv light bad for your skin? Aren’t uv rays what cause sunburn?

        yea right! UV not harmful? hmmm.

          A shellac treatment has the same UV effect on the skin as walking through a park for 15 mins on a cloudy day……

          you can always apply suncream to the clients hands if they think this is harmful…

          Yes that is for real – it is not harmful at all and it was proven numerous times under supervision of reputable scientists. This “harmful” claim is SOOOO boring really!!
