Decided to splurge and got a shellac manicure today. I kind of wish I had gone with a more exciting color for my first one, but I was treating this more as a trial run for my wedding. Hopefully it wears as long as they say it does!

I don’t do manis very often, what’s shellac? Is it like a gel or is it fake nails?
Yours look very pretty I love the colour!

@monh13: Shellac is wonderful! Until it’s time to take it off….
@FortiesFlare: Gel and Shellac are the same as far as I know.

@FortiesFlare: Shellac is like a gel and it’s on your real nails. You have to cure the color coats and top coat with a UV light. There are a few different brands out with it right now, Gelish and OPI GelColor. This one is Shellac in the color Grapefruit Sparkle.
@mchitt329: Yeah, we’ll see how it goes when it’s time to take it off…I have really strong nails, and I’m going to try not to pick at the polish, since I heard that’s really what can damage your nails.
