Shellac Nail Polish . . . Yay or Nay??

Aug 30, 2012

Happy Friday!! Since it’s Friday I thought we could discuss something that we all have in common……NAILS! Ha!

So, I feel kind of out of the loop because until about a month or so, I hadn’t heard about the world of Shellac Nails! 

I am always so reluctant to get nail polish when I go to the nail salon
because I don’t want to experience my nails chipping shortly after
leaving the salon, so as boring as it sounds, I normally get clear

On one occasion the nail technician convinced me to get a polish and against my better judgement, I caved and about 4 days later, this is
what my nails looked like…..

Horrific I know.!

posted this awful picture on facebook stating that I was going to
invent a nail polish that doesn’t chip and I quickly discovered that
somebody already beat me to the punch! One person commented on my
picture and said, “You need to get with the program…..Shellac Nail
Polish is the way to go”! 

then I’ve been doing my research and asking around and I am still torn
on what to do. One group of folks stated that they love it and will
never go back. However, another group stated that they will never get
this type of nail polish again because it caused their nails to weaken
and many complained about the process of removing the polish. 

So what’s a girl to do……

Have y’all tried it? If so, what has your experience been like? How long does the nail polish truly stay on? 

Please oh please give me the 411 so I can make an informed decision:)

Enjoy your weekend and holiday!
