This past Friday, I experienced something wonderful. A Shellac manicure! I had heard about it and a few friends of mine had tried it and I thought why not! I love to do my own nails but considering how rough I am at work moving computer boxes around, I thought this would help my manicures last longer than just a day or two. Plus, because I am a jeweler (at my fun job) and showing rings, bracelets and looking put together, I thought this would be a great idea to try.
I researched the colors and options before my appointment so that I could be ready to go once I arrived. There is nothing more that I dread than going in for a mani/pedi and having to pick out 1 color out of hundreds. After awhile, they all start to look the same to me. I thought for this first time, I would go for a color but in the end, as you see, I opted for the classic french manicure. The prices were reasonable and the girl I found charged less for a color manicure than anywhere else. I thought that in itself was worth checking out. So far I’m really happy with it. It’s day 4 and I’m still chip free. Yay!
I’ll keep you posted on how it goes. If this really can last 2 weeks (or longer) as is advertised, I’m sold!!
Have you ever had a shellac manicure? If not, would you be willing to try it out?
In friendship and style…
