I'll admit...this picture of my hands is really weird looking. They look like old lady hands...so wrinkly! And...my polish is not black! It is a brownish, purple that sparkles in the sun! But, that isn't the point of this post. The point is my manicure that is a 2-3 week lasting manicure! Usually, I pay $20 for a manicure that lasts about 8 hours and then begins chipping and peeling. This is a new type of manicure called a shellac manicure. It doesn't damage your nails, but is long lasting! Here is the process:
Base Coat (UV light for 1 min)
Color Coat 1 (UV light for 2 min)
Color Coat 2 (UV light for 3 min)
Top Coat (UV light for 3 min)
A quick wipe of the nails with alcohol
And VOILA! Nails are dry and ready to go!
And...the best part is that it only cost $30! I'll keep you posted on the progress. So far...3 days in and no chips! It is looking promising for sure!
