Why Are My Shellac Nails Sticky?

Hi, I'm Jocelyn...

I remember the first time…

I did Shellac and thought…

“Why are they sticky?”…

So I Googled it…

and realized it is no big deal…

It’s 100% Normal…

for Shellac to be sticky…

after the final layer of curing…

Here’s how you fix it…

First, get a cotton ball…

and soak it in alcohol…

now rub each nail with the cotton ball…

and the stickiness is gone…

I Imagine You’re Just Starting…

to do Shellac on your own…

and I am super excited for you…

but if you don’t do it right…

I am super sorry for you…

because I was in your shoes…

and found out that it isn’t…

as easy as the product manufacturers…

make it sound…

In fact, I have spent…

over $1,000 figuring out…

how to do it right…

What Do I Mean?…

Shellac peels early!!!…

If you use the wrong products…

use the wrong techniques…

don’t follow the right steps…

it will peel early….

and when I say early…

what I mean is that…

it will peel in a day or two…

If you are lucky…

you might get 6 days…

out of a bad manicure…

So what are the right steps?…

That question is why…

OVER 40,000 Women Have Come To Me…

since Jan 2015 because…

their Shellac was peeling early…

at first I tried to personally answer…

each person’s questions…

but that got overwhelming…

and I have kids to feed…

things to do…

and stores to shop!…

So I Am Now Doing The Next Best Thing…

by just giving away my cheat sheets…

via the internet…

Remember I spent over $1,000…

and many years on these steps…

Maybe I am just a slow learner…

but I had to try out a bunch…

of different products…

from various brands…

and figure out what I was doing wrong…

and what was the right way…

I’m Kind Of A Perfectionist…

So I turned my scribbles and notes…

into a full blown guide…

on how to do Shellac the right way…

I even went all out and subscribed…

to a software to help me deliver them…

Guess what?…

I spent more money…

So…

I am more than happy…

to give this guide to you…

and give you 24/7 access to it…

from anywhere in the world or…

even on your mobile phone…

because you will go to it…

over and over again…

as you perfect the process yourself…

I Just Need $3.99…

because it cost me money to make it…

and deliver it to you…

plus the 24/7 access was hard to do…

That being said…

don’t waist your time or money…

on a peeling manicure…

Instead use my mistakes…

to fix your problem…

So you don’t have to…

suffer from more disappointment…

and stress…

I Know It Works…

because I have done it…

over and over again…

Here’s the deal…

if for some reason you can’t get…

your shellac to last for 2 weeks…

after using my system…

I will personally coach you…

and send you a free bottle of polish…

So Let’s Recap…

Your Shellac is peeling…

it is very frustrating…

and you need a solution…

I’ve got exactly what want…

and it’s just $3.99 (get instant access here)…

plus I guarantee that my way works…

Seems like a no brainer right?…

If by using my steps…

you get a 2 week manicure

wouldn’t $3.99 feel like…

    Hello ladies. The first time I used shellac myself I had the same problem, my nails were very sticky. I looked it up online and it said to use rubbing alcohol after you’ve applied your last and final coat of shellac, so I rummaged through my cupboards and found a bottle of gin. I poured a drop onto a lint cloth and I rubbed over my nails – that seemed to did the trick but the correct alcohol you should use is isopropanol alcohol which you can buy online (I brought mine from amazon) and since using that it’s not been sticky at all. I hope this helps!

      So is rubbing alcohol still okay to use? It’s all I have.

    • lucy on April 8, 2015 at 2:13 pm

      or just use alcohol hand gel on a cotton pad

    Hello,

    I’d like to take a shellac nail system with me as I’m moving to Saudi Arabia and will be away from anywhere to get my nails done. The problem is in Saudi Arabia you can not bring in or buy alcohol, or any products that contain alcohol (of any kind) and in the shellac process it says that you need it. Are there other things that can clean/prep the nail, and get rid of the stickiness after the top coat and final curing other than alcohol (or products that contain alcohol)? I’d really appreciate help with this.
    Thanks

    Did you read the instructions or watch the video. It says to use alcohol with cotton ball at the end to remove the stickyness.

    Hi, I wonder if you can help. I bought all the correct items for doing Shellac Nails. I filed them, pushed cuticles back, rubbed the scrub on them, applied the base coat thinly and dried them under the UV lamp for 2 mins. They were very sticky so I used the UV lamp again for another 2 mins – still sticky so I put them under the lamp again and still sticky. So I decided just apply the Shellac nail polish anyway and they were still sticky after using the Lamp about 6 more times. I applied the top coat and they never did dry. When I got up the next morning they were covered in fluff and it just started to peel off and they were still sticky to the touch!!! What am I doing wrong? Hope you can help as I’m at my witts end now after having tried over and over again!!! Thank you Desperate Christine.
