I decided to have a Shellac manicure for a friends wedding as I didn't want the maintenance of gels. I was amazed at how natural it actually looked. My shellac had been on my nails for 14 days now and they still look like they did when I first had them. When I read the review on shellac I was quite dubious that a varnish could last so long, I take it back, because it does.
I will be having them done again but for now I will enjoy my french manicure a while longer.
