It has been about 4 weeks since my last visit so well and truly due.
I have started getting my nails painted with Shellac which is a quick drying method that I can vouch for.
The three step method starts with Shellac base coat which cures in 10 seconds. Then the Shellac Colour is applied. There are many colours to choose from but this will depend on what your beautician has in stock. With each coat applied, including the base coat, nails are put under UV light in the form of a portable lamp to cure the paint.
Finally the Top Coat is applied, nails under UV and Ta Da.
Outcome is a set of scratch resistant high shine nails that Shellac is known for. Dry time is zero and has no odour.
This means my time is used efficiently and I dont have to walk around the shops like a wierdo with my hands in the air, not even able to scratch myself.
If you have the opportunity to try Shellac, do it. You will not be disappointed.
