For the past 15 months I’ve had beautiful nails. Not beautiful in the sense that someone’s going to snap me up as a hand model. No, beautiful in the sense that they looked cared for.
Which is a major improvement on the 15
months years prior to that.
Well, it’s not so secret now but back when I wrote this post in August last year, not many people had cottoned on to the two-week manicure from CND Shellac. In a nutshell, it’s applied like a regular polish – two colour coats plus a base and undercoat – but it’s sealed under UV light. It won’t feel thick like acrylics on your nails and, unlike acrylics, I can report that your nails will actually strengthen from having this on regularly. To remove the colour, you soak it off with acetone, which I’ll mostly do at home to save a few dollars at the salon.
