Shellac Manicure Review (VIDEO)

Have you heard of the shellac manicure yet? It’s not really new – been out for a few years – but not many of my friends have tried it yet. Shellac nail polish is a little different than your standard brand.

    I’ve been doing shellac for over a year. You can go 3 weeks if you have a good tech who pushes your cuticles back evenly and paints very close and evenly to the cuticle. I’ve even gone 4 weeks. Yeah there is a lot of growth but when you are short on time, it’s fine. You can also layer the colors to create new colors. Go on the shellac website for some suggestions. I live in NJ and it cost $25 ior $30 depending and who does it.

    Actually, if you shopped around, you could find it cheaper. I get mine for $28 and yes, it does last for up to and over three weeks on me. I use cuticle oil each night to help keep it from drying out under the nail.
    I’ve been getting them for two years now and I’ll never go back. I pay less with this because I make it last for 4 weeks, so it’s a total bonus for me.
    There are plenty of places that do it for far less than $35 all over Long Island.
