Just a thought, could she have used a nvr with acetone in it? I spilt some acetone on my nails the other day and the nails it went on have all got little cracks on them now.

A lady came to me last week after having shellac on for 2 weeks. This was applied by another nail tech and not myself. There were cracks in quite a few of them. I thought it was maybe her nails where weak and she must have banged them causing the cracking. I have never had this happen to me on loads of nails like I saw, only maybe on 1 occassion on 1 nail when a client had banged it so this was understandable. When shellac cracks it normally cracks all the way through, although buffing and another topcoat will help it wont hold forever but just as a temporary measure its fine. X

Update - just had the client here I buffed the top coat slightly but the cracks were quite deep , so I removed and re-applied, the only thing that i did or used differently last time was the speedy top coat so I didn't this time!
I have applied speedy to my nail to see what happens! X

Can I just ask why you would put another top coat over shellac apart from the shellac one?

I stamp onto the sticky layer of the second coat of colour then shellac top coat over all of it. I've used shellac to stamp as well as nail polish and it fine.
Here are the ones I posted a few weeks ago. I only took them off yesterday and they were still perfect apart from the regrowth. They were stamped with cream puff shellac

That's what I did this morning, when I first started using konad it wouldn't work for me I was getting half the stamp etc, hence stamping on shellac top coat, it worked a treat this morning, maybe my technique has improved along with my speed -who knows lol! These look lovely by the way.! xx

I have trouble stamping into the sticky layer using normal polish aswell so I stamp onto the topcoat and topcoat again usually. Will keep trying as it would save having to do two topcoats.

I will it's just safer doing it on topcoat in case you need to wipe it off and try again though isn't it

After applying a layer of speedy top coat over my thumb, looking closely today I can see hairline cracks starting to appear - problem solved it's my top coat!
