    I'm booking an appointment to get acrylic nail extensions done for a wedding I'm going to. The closest salon to me has two options: acrylic extensions for £25 or acrylics with shellac for £33. I'm a bit of a novice with this kind of thing: what's the difference? Does without shellac mean that I won't get colour on the nails? Or is it just the type of polish you get at the end?

    Thanks.

    hiiii, my family has a nail shop (just viet things) and shellac is just the type of nail vanish, it's a vanish that dries in 1 minute under ultraviolet light thingy, and will not* come off unless using one of those drill tools...so it's pretty long lasting and strong.

    without shellac, then you get the normal colours that require the usual heat dryer thing and can be rubbed off with acetone
