@gaucho25:  Not at all. I use a similar brand (Organic Nails’ Laquer pro) and it takes over a week for it to show the nail growth. Mine has never worn off, I remove it (after 3 weeks) cause my nails grow and it’s too noticeable.

YES!  Go to Nananda Nails in York Place on the Downtown Mall.


When I found shellac, I started trying all the different places that do them.  Moxie was the first and they just stopped doing nails completely.  Bristles does them, but I wasn’t too pleased with the woman there bashing Nananda.  Of course, that sent me right to Nananda…and she’s lovely! 

I had my shellac manicure on Wednesday for my Friday wedding and my nails looked great through the honeymoon.


Nananda will do a shellac pedi, but I went to Avina Natural Nails (behind Barracks Road) for my pedi with my bridesmaids and we had a blast.  My pedi wasn’t shellac and it was perfect for a couple weeks.  🙂

I recently had a shellac that lasted 4 four weeks and the only reason I had to take it off was because it looked ridiculous with my nails growing out! There are great places in the city, and I definitely think your timeline works for getting them done in NY.
