Day 2 of my pampering experience…decided to try this new shellac manicure. I hear people talk about it all the time. It’s supposed to be no-chip for 14 days (maybe even longer) and it dries instantly. I love the french manicure and have tried acrylic nails. But just never been a fan of acrylics. My nails grow so fast that I always have that gap at the edge of the acrylics which totally BUG the scheisters out of me. And I hate the unnatural feel of the nails. You know, where you can’t feel what you’re touching and you never want to touch anything with your finger tips and blah. I’m a busy girl and I hate the fuss. I cook almost every day, do dishes and I just can’t be bothered with the acrylics. But that’s just me! I’m sure acrylics are great for others.
So…went to Vickie’s Personal Touch this morning and gave it a try. They have a $5 off coupon that ends January 31, 2011. So far I love the look. My nails dried instantly. I was out of there in 30 minutes and I can touch anything I want without the worry of chipping my newly manicured nails. I asked them if it was “safe” on your nails. Supposedly it is….but when your nail polish is about to chip off, NEVER pull them off as it can peel off a layer of your nail! UGH! Sounds painful. Take a look at the picture below. Those are my natural nails. What do you think? I’ll give you another review after 14 days and see what “I” think…. Ciao!
