I Heart Shellac!
Yep.... I am in manicure HEAVEN!!! I got my nails "Shellaced" yesterday with CND's Tropix Shellac and I LOVE IT!!! Now I've had Shellac manicures before, but I didn't realize how WONDERFUL this product was until I grabbed my Konad nail art, messed it up, then removed the nail art entirely with non-acetone nail polish remover, reapplied the nail art and NEVER ONCE messed up the nail base Shellac color or lost an ounce of shine!!! Honestly folks.... isn't that INCREDIBLE???? Now I do want to add for those of you who tune in here on my blog and for those who have not tried a Shellac manicure, this product does not wear the full two weeks (as advertised by the company) on me. I typically get about 8 good days of wear with Shellac and then it peels and my edges chip a little. But for me, THAT IS OK!!! My nails look FABULOUS for 8 solid days and because Shellac has sort of a rubbery feel to it (being a hybrid of polish AND gel), it is very comfortable to wear. I also feel like my nails are ultra protected with this product. And this Tropix color is a really great summer color. My nails look like I'm on vacation!!!
So for the Konadicure above, I used Konad's special polish in white and image plates M7 and M79 and finished off with a Seche Vite top coat to set the nail art. CUTE, CUTE, CUTE!!!
Tune back in over the course of the next 8 days... I'm gonna change up the nail art and let everyone see how the Shellac holds up. Should be a fun experiment! :)
