@Alexandria_Lyn:  your ring is gorgeous!!! My mom has a similar RHR and i can’t wait to wear the as my something blue… I would’ve been over the moon if she had offered it as an heirloom ring for my e-ring, but she is understandably very attached to it. ;)

Does anyone have much experience with gel nail polish that gets “baked” on with the UV light at the salon? I’m looking into that as an alternative to acrylics and wanted any input on it.

@lilsweetie:  The Shellac Manicures that the OP and I are wearing are the “gel” nail polish that you are refferring to! I was engaged 1-1-13, and got my manicure done the day after. The first one lasted about 3 1/2 weeks before it chipped once, and I am now rocking my second coat. The money is so worth it considering the amount of people who will be looking at your hand. They cost about 30 dollars, but if you figure that at least thirty people will look at your hand each month, that’s a dollar a person!  Not too bad haha.

@sleepyhead22:  Thank you!  I lucked out because it was a total suprise. My only worry now is finding a wedding ring that will fit good with it!

I absolutely love it though (:

@Alexandria_Lyn:  that’s about the same price as my acylic nails, so i’m already used to spending that $ :) thanks for the input!

how long does it get done each time? How long do you have to put it under the UV?

My nails are currently bare (as is my finger while my ring is getting resized) but here’s my just-engaged mani! We picked out the peridot ring together, and I knew when he was going to propose, so like a dork I looked at a color wheel and chose the complementary color for my nails!

@lilsweetie:  It takes about 30 minutes total, including the manicure part. They do four coats at 2 minutes each under the UV light, and it dries instantly. As soon as I got up from the chair, I stuck my hand in my purse to fish around for my keys, and they’re still perfect.  Also, the great part with getting a light color, or a french, is that you can paint right over it with any regular nail polish, and it looks so shiny and neat. The nail polish will rub right off with some acetone-free nailpolish remover, and leave your gel underneath looking just the same. I’ll never get acrylic or a regular manicure agin.
