Anyone know where sells true Shellac? My Mum does her own nails and loves the Shellac from the beautician but can't find it to buy online. If anyone has any advice please let me know! flowers

You need proof that you're qualified to do shellac before you're allowed to purchase through sweetsquared or ellisons

If you mean CND Shellac then as Diddly said you'll need to send off your certificates to be able to buy it as it's a 'professionals only' product.

But there are loads of brands of gel polish, similar to Shellac, that you cure under a lamp, that you can buy off eBay or in the shops like this.

Thanks, she does her own gel nails but really loves the CND Shellac quality, it lasts longer and keeps shiny.

If she has been doing her own nails with shellac then where as she been buying the product from?

She does her own gel nails with a kit bought from Groupon, but goes for a treat ocassionally to a proper beautician who uses Shellac.

She wanted to know where she could buy Shellac but it seems like she can't, thanks everyone for input.

Nail polish direct seems to do it
