Shellac Nail Polish
Posted May 31, 2011on:
Got my nails did over the holiday weekend. Instead of the usual manicure, I tried a fairly new process using Shellac Nail Polish. The polish is made specifically so that it last 2 weeks without chipping. I called bull on this because usually my nails chip within the first few days.
I’ve heard of this new nail process over a year ago and knew some people who swore by it. However I was wary of it thinking it was going to ruin my already sensitive nail bed. After a year of waiting and after several other testimonials, I finally took the plunge. It involves several turns of paint and drying under a UV light and midway through I thought I was going to fall asleep. However it’s been 2 days and my nails are in pretty good shape considering I just detailed a car and did several loads of dishes.
This got me thinking. What is the manicure trend in Korea? Answer: Pretty spring colors…and a lot of greens.
