Last Friday after work I decided to go get a manicure & pedicure before Jay's flight got in. The great thing about living in the city is that there is a nail salon only a block away. I also decided that maybe I'd finally get shellac done on my nails. I've contemplated it, yes, but no, never actually had it done.
I have though, for the past 4 weekends said I really really need/want a manicure. So I finally got there. And a week later, it still looks pretty great. Unlike a manicure that would for sure be chipped by now, this seems to last. One word of advice I was given pre-shellac manicure was that if your nails tend to grow fast, go with a lighter color. I decided to stick with those words of wisdom and chose a light pink.
Here's how it's looking a week later.
It's hard to tell in the picture but my nails are indeed starting to grow out, and it would have been pretty obvious in a darker nail polish. We'll see how things look in another week. Shellac is said to last 2 weeks....
Want a closer look?
Don't mind Tuck, he loves getting his picture taken. :)
