The last thing on my list has been taken care of — a manicure. It’s been a while since I’ve discussed nails but I am obsessed with shellac. There aren’t that many colors to pick from, but I figured this one would do just fine for the next two weeks. That’s the WONDER of shellac. There is NO CHIPPING at all.
Mind you – it’s a bit expensive. About $35 for a shellac manicure in NY – but you don’t have to go for 2 weeks. So, in the end, it about evens out. And trust me – I would pay a little more to ensure my manicure doesn’t chip after a SHOWER! I HATE paying for a manicure only to have it ruined by the next day.
One more thing if this is the first time you are reading about shellac:
It’s really hard to take the polish off. So, you have to go back to the salon to remove it. I did do a write up explaining HOW to take shellac off at home – but it’s MUCH EASIER at the salon. Believe me.
