Why Are My Shellac Nails Peeling Off?

The Top 3 Reasons Why Shellac peels off early?

Don’t worry it used to happen to me too…

Want it to stop happening?

For the last 5 years I have figured out why Shellac peels early…

Here Are The Top 3 Reasons…Drumroll Please!

1. Thick Application – You will almost always experience peeling if you apply the layers too thick. Make sure your layers are not too thick. Thinner is best!

2. Thin Application – Just as you shouldn’t paint too thickly, you shouldn’t paint too thin. When your layers are too thin it will cause early peeling and will not look as beautiful.

3. Old Products – Just like regular nail polish, Shellac can be too old. Shellac gets old over time, oxygen exposure, light exposure and contamination. **TIP** Keep your Shellac Nail Polish in a dark place that isn’t too hot or too cold (room temperature is best).

Wait…There Are More!

What’s the 4th, 5th, 6th, and even 10th most common Shellac mistake?

I have compiled a Top 10 Shellac Mistakes list with more information. If you are serious about getting Shellac to stop peeling, you must know these Top 10 Things To Avoid!

  • “You too can have Shellac Nails for 2 Weeks without them peeling early!”
  • “Discover how easy it is to do Shellac Nails the right way”
  • “How I have helped 1,000s of women”
  • “Doing it right is a lot cheaper than doing it wrong over and over again!”

Were You Like Me?

Did you get Shellac Nails hoping for a 2 week manicure…but were shocked when they peeled early? I couldn’t believe it when it happened to me the first time!


Maybe you spent $30 – $50 with a “Pro” who promised two weeks… but you were disappointed when they lasted only 2 days!

At this point most women do 1 of 3 things…

1. They give up entirely on Shellac & just say that it doesn’t work for them.

2. They try it again hoping that it will work this time.

3. They get online and try to find a solution that works.

In all three scenarios 99% of the women don’t really get the result they are looking for.

Is it too much to ask for?

All we want is a 2 week manicure that doesn’t chip, peel, or bubble. Is it really possible?

Yes! Yes! Yes! & another Yes! It is and it isn’t your fault that they peeled. Shellac promised an easy 2 week manicure but the steps they teach don’t work on everyone.

That’s where I come in…

After months and months of research, buying products, testing, and interviewing nail technicians I have created the Ultimate Guide To Stop Shellac From Peeling… Ever Again!

I Practice What I Preach

I personally have done my own nails using these steps and many many other women’s (my friends, neighbors, family,…and people I don’t even know seem to find out that I am a nail blogger & beg me to do their nails).

Guess what?

:) :) :) Their Shellac Nails lasted 2 weeks and it was super easy to do. :) :) :)

Imagine…two weeks from today you look down at your fingers and see a beautiful manicure that was done 2 weeks ago. I know for me this is no longer a dream but a reality! I love my manicures :)

How much am I giving it away for?

This one has been a real tricky one for me. When I first started toying with the idea of teaching people the “Right” way to apply Shellac I was a bit jealous. I kept thinking of how I wished there was something out there like this when I was stuck.

That jealously led me to want to charge what the information was worth… but then I asked all my friends what they thought was fair and one number kept coming up…$9.99.


…It took some convincing but I decided to let it go for just $9.99…for now..

30 Day Guarantee!

Yep, that’s right. I am going to give you a 30 day Guarantee that my guide will work for you. I am that confident in it. If for some reason it doesn’t work for you, I will refund your $9.99…no questions asked.

Frequently Asked Questions

Still sitting on the fence? Hear are some answers to the most asked questions…

1. Will It Work For My Nails?

Yes. If you are like 99.9% of the women out there, then yes it will. If you are in the .1% group you have nothing to fear, I will give your money back with my 30 Day Guarantee.

2. Is it easy to do?

This question is a little harder to answer because everyone is at different levels when it comes to doing their own nails. However, I would rate this system a 5 when it comes to difficulty. A five simply because you need to make sure you don’t paint on your cuticles and that seems hard for some people.

3. Does this system work with other gel nail products like OPI, Gelish, etc?

The simple answer is yes. I like answering this question because I have come up with my system because I use tons of different brands. I am not loyal to just one. I go with what I like and with what works. You will notice in my guide that I don’t just use one brand’s product. That is what makes my system work and why it took so long to come up with.

    Maybe like me constant hand washing and hot water along with everyday things cleaning, cooking, the polish just gets broken down perhaps… I also wonder if its due to me naturally having hard nails and applying the hard shellac by a professional if my nails are just more prone to cracking or polish chipping due to the length they are?

  2. SOPHIE on February 2, 2015 at 1:34 pm

    I recently done my own nails in shellac and they have stayed on for over 2 weeks now but I done two other peoples and they have began to peel off I am wondering why this is when I’ve used all the correct things and the same things as I did with mine in. Just wondering why this could be.

    i thought i was the only on experiencing this chipping problems of gel nail polish that starts to peel off after a day or 2 of applying it. i have a few products from epic nails base, top cots and polish and the lamp too is from epic nails. i thought this gel nail polish is meant to last. to remove this gel polish you need acetone which is very strong so i do not understand why it should not last long if your hands are in water a lot such as for people who wash there hands a lot e.g hairdressers or nurses. i mean what water verses acetone equals same effect which is chipping and pealing i do not get it acetone is much much stronger and if water causes the chipping and pealing then why do we need acetone to remove the gel completely. am a nurse and yes i wash my hands and use hand gel sanitizer but am only at work 2-3 days a week max. i do not get it why my nail polish never lasts the 4- 5days am off. some times the polish starts to chip and crack and peal the very day i do then few hours after from washing a few dishes or even after a shower its just not making sense. when i first started using gel nail polish i could not even bit it off with my teeth coz i used to bit my nails that why i started using it but and now i just use my fingers nails to peal it off my nails completely most of the time i do not even have to soak them in acetone at all. the other thing is that if you have acrylics nail extensions tips the do use a gel on top that does not chip peal or crack even when i have been at work as a nurse 5 days a week washing hands and using hand sanitizer during an 8 to 10 hour shift. could it be that the use of the acetone eventually starts to affect the effectiveness of future gel nail applications? this is because i used to go to a nail salon when this gel polish started then suddenly it stopped lasting i changed salons but problem continued hence i stopped going coz it was not cheap and not ;lasting as long and since then got my own home kit and i have a collection of different brands and some are really poor the two brands that are a bit better are from epic nails and luminail and i find that the gel nail polish with glitter in them do last a bit more a week max than the clear ones which last anywhere for a few hours after applying them. i have changed my lamp bulbs few times, applied as thin layers as possible clean my nails really well and even cure my nails a lot longer sometimes even 10minutes max still have issues
    its really frustrating.
