Shellac Nail Kit (Plus Alternatives)

A lot of my friends ask where they can buy a Shellac Nail Kit. This is a pretty usual question because unless you go online, the only other place to buy Shellac is at a professional nail technician store, and you need a membership.

So, if you're wondering "where can I buy a shellac nail kit", and a quality one at that, I recommend going online. Unless you have a nail technician certificate, diploma, or a friend who can get you one from these stores, online is your only option.

​I want to clear up a misconception about Shellac. Sometimes customers ask me "what is the best shellac brand?". Well, the answer to that is simple; the best shellac nail polish brand is CND. My guess is that because Shellac and Gel are similar, people began using Shellac as a term to identify some Gel Polishes. Similarly to Kleenex and napkins.

I will do a little review about a CND Shellac nail kit and 2 alternatives that are gel nail polishes.

Please do not buy the products from random online stores unless it is from a trusted reseller or the company of the brand itself. Take a look at the trusted nail kits below.

Shellac Nail Kit

Beginner Friendly

2 Week Wear Test​

Gelish Nail Kit

Beginner Friendly

2 Week Wear Test​

  • LED Light

  • 1 Top Coat

My Opinion

A long lasting gel nail polish that has everything for a complete gel manicure.

Some of these products on amazon do not ship to certain countries, therefore, you may need to go through a middle man such as the one for Gelish. If the number of reviews for the products is low in the amazon specific to your country, look at the US Amazon website, and you will see whether or not the product is good.

I chose these 3 different brands of shellac nail polish, or similar to shellac because they are professional brands and are used everywhere you go. Personally, I love CND, and I get my products at a local beauty store. The other two; Sally Hansen, and Gelish, are more readily available online.

So there you have it, buy your shellac nail kit online if you are not a member of a professional cosmetics store.

Just to let you know, buying your own gel polish nail kit is a great way to familiarize yourself with legitimate products. Some nail salons have unmarked products and use low-quality products. Read here for more nail salon tips!
