14 days of perfectly polished nails? Yes please!

I have been hearing about this shellac manicure for a while now. Two weeks of a perfect manicure, no acrylic, fun colors and no chipping? Kind of sounds too good to be true, right? It's not! I called Sherrie Bearden, an awesome nail gal at Salon Lydia, booked my appointment and went in for my first shellac mani!

I had no idea what to expect. Here is the lay-man's rundown:
The 14-day staying power happen in 3 steps - a base coat (UV lamp), 2 color coats (UV lamp between each) and a top coat (UV lamp).
The big deal is that it goes on like a polish, looks like a gel and wears beautifully!

My nails looks amazing... bright red, unchipped and soooo shiny!

Call Sherrie, she did an amazing job and I love (and appreciate) how sanitary and timely she is too!

Cheers to the latest and greatest!

  1. this is amazing! I am going to call her! I have never even heard of it before.

  2. Katie, it really is amazing! I love them... they still look perfect! For sure call Sherrie! :)

  3. They look awesome! I've always wondered about shellac nails and your blog was very helpful! Let me know how they come off. That's the part I'm worried about.
