Shellac 2.0

Since Shellac brought out new colours, I thought I would give it another go.

Shellac still hasn't brought out a great range of colours, but there is a lot of layering going on of the current colours to make new ones. I went for a great dark green colour that was make by layering Iced Coral over Black Pool.

Unfortunately the sun hasn't come out and I couldn't get better pictures. It is a lot more emerald green and brighter in real life. These pictures do not do it justice - I will work on getting so better pictures over the long weekend.

This was 2 coats of Black Pool followed by one coat of Iced Coral, which is a green shimmer (it seems a lot like CND Emerald/Teal Shimmer)

So far I have had this on for 3 days. Luckily the colour is shimmery a pretty so I am not yet bored with it.

This time my nails and cuticles are in much better condition than they were about a year ago when I first got shellacked. Last time the shellac peeled off when my nails flaked off. This time I am expecting it to last a lot longer.

I got this done at Finishing Touch Salon in Wellington, and it cost $60.

Have a great Easter ladies.

Lots of Love
