I have had acrylics on and off for years, oh the money I have spent for nails. As an artist, they were fabulous, easy clean up and nothing stuck on them.
Then I decided no more, and have had my natural nails for about a year I guess...maybe longer.
Now I like them short and rounder...but always painted. Problem, it never lasts. Even the Sally Hansen Complete, boasts long wear...but in about 3-4 days, chips start.
So a friend told me about the shellac, and I am so happy. Nothing sticks...they do last 2 weeks. It is a bit pricey, about 25.00 here in Louisiana. It is not damaging to your nails, they say and I see no problems yet.
So I thought I would share the proof... a messy art day.
I will admit to getting bored with the color after a week or so, I am very picky with my nails...
