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….
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.
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.
