I just want to clarify that you absolutely do not need to buff with Shellac

And I just want to clarify what I and many others have said several times that all of these products are only as good as the base they are applied to.

A nail in good condition does not need buffing for any of them if the application is accurate. A nail that does not have a good surface may need a light buffing for ALL the different brands, even Shellac! Eg a nail that has delamination will not successfully hold on to anything.

You need to use your skills and knowledge and do what is right for each client and each nail. I don't know why light buffing is such an issue! No one worries about glossing a natural nail!

Don't buff if you don't need to and save time. If the surface is not good then give it a light buff.

I have to say i have done this with one client who after examining her nails thought would be beneficial,and i have just used a 240 grit file,i would never use anything less....however her skin and nails were in quite good condition,and i only did this to take the shine off her nail...
