    I am usually a red or pink person too, but I’m loving the nude colors.  It feels like spring to me.  

    5 weeks is insanely long!  I never had mine on for more than 2 1/2 weeks.  The growth between the cuticle drives me crazy.

    Personally, I did shellac once… and will NEVER do it again.

    It ruined my nails… dried them out so badly.

    It took me close to a year for my nail beds to recover … which was very painful… cracking, splitting, chipping etc… because it just so happened to be my toe nails that I had done while I was on a cruise vacation.

    Nope, I’ll be sticking with regular old nail polish from now on !!

    Hopefully, you won’t have these same issues in that you’ve left the product on so long.

    Oooh, I would do navy! Get the dark color out of the way while it’s still ‘winter’! I really prefer dark polish anyway.

    I’m super jealous…I can’t wear any kind of nail polish at work, so it’s only worth it to me to paint them when I have at least 2 days off in a row!
