Shellac (No Chip) Manicure

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!

    1. Hello Vickie,

      You’d be happy to hear that even after four weeks, my shellac manicure is still standing strong. Of course, my nails have grown so there’s that gap from where the old polish ends and my new nail has come in, but overall, the manicure itself is still hanging on. I love this new beauty discovery of mine. I will be back soon to have a new one put in. Thanks again!
