Since I know that we’re always looking for quick ways to stay fab, I thought I’d do a quick post on one of my favorite beauty time-savers – shellac manicures. Shellac manicures are this girl’s best friend when I need my nails to look good, but have zero free time. These manicures stay chip-free and glossy for up to 14 days. And, if that’s not enough to send you running to your nearest nail salon, these manicures also dry almost immediately after application. If you’re anything like me and have smudged your nails while paying for your mani, on your way to your car immediately after your mani, or opening your front door 20 minutes after your mani – you understand my excitement. Also, chipped nails at work are usually a no-no, so a chip free manicure could leave you with one less thing to stress about.
Like most nail treatments, you should definitely do your research before getting a shellac manicure. My nails haven’t been damaged by my shellac manicures, but I have read some reviews that mention countless negative effects. For me, shellac manicures are something that I do when I know I will be extremely pressed for time or will not have access to my usual nail technician.
Have any of you lovelies had a shellac manicure? If so, what was your experience and would you recommend it.
