awesome rec for nails!!

hey everyone!
so recently, i got this nail treatment done on my nails - it's called Shellac by CND. it's fairly new, so if you havent heard of it, click here.

it's basically a nail polish, and after every coat, the technician puts your nails under a UV lamp for about a minute. after the top coat, your nails literally stay super super shiny and chip-proof for at least a week and a half. depending on how abusive you are on your nails, it can last for a month.

you can get normal colors and french tip - so you nails would look gorgeous for your wedding and the honeymoon!
i'm definitely doing this on my wedding day, because they looked gorgeous for a really long time, and i loved it. it also doesn't hurt your nails like getting acrylics or gels.

hope this helps some of you!

  • I have heard of it before. And I have heard really good things about it. I might  have to give it a try sometime.
  • it's really good - weird to see perfect nailpolish after a week when they'd  normally be chipped
    i'll definitely be doing this for my wedding

     

  • How do you get it off?
    My baby girl is a married woman...and now my baby girl HAS a baby girl. Time unfolds in such an amazing way. I've been blessed!
  • My mother was telling me about this!!  She already made an appointment for the two of us to get our nails done!   Awesome to hear a good second opinion!

    The website says you should return to your nail professional for removal.  I find that a wee bit intimidating since I don't get my nails done regularly.
