I've never been a fan of manicures. Not because I don't like the way they look but because I chip the stupid polish within 5 seconds of getting one. I remember vividly, my 8th grade English teacher's nails. They were always the same length, perfectly painted and she wore cool colors like ORANGE;) I wanted to grow up and have nails just like her. Sadly, that never happened for me.
UNTIL...Tina gave me a gift certificate for a shellac manicure. It is supposed to last 2-3 weeks. It's not supposed to chip. I was a skeptic so I went with a French just in case because chipping doesn't look as bad. The first thing I loved was my nails were ready to go when I left the salon. I could reach into my purse to pay. I could stick my hands in my pockets. They were dry, they were ready to go.
I had it done almost a week ago and I'm LOVING it. My nails look great. They are still shiny. I feel like a grown up. I thought I'd share for those of you who want to give it a try and I'll keep you posted as to how long it lasted.
