Whether you're a professional dancer or a student beginning your pointe journey, Pointe Shoe Shellac is a wonderful tool for anyone looking to extend the life of their pointe shoes.

How To Apply:

  1. Shake before use.
  2. Make sure there is nothing inside your pointe shoes (no toe pads, drawstrings, lambswool etc.)
  3. Apply Pointe Shoe Shellac evenly INSIDE the TOE BOX and to the TIP of the shoe. Never use the product on the outside of the shoe as it will stain the satin.  NOTE: If there is a sponge toe pad, it is not recommended to shellac the sponge or it will harden.
  4. If harder shoes are desired, after the first application, let the shellac dry, and then apply a 2nd coat of shellac. Repeat if necessary, 1 coat for less hardness and up to 3 coats for very hard.
  5. Check that the inside of the shoe is completely dry before wearing it.
