Shellac - Welcome To The Future!

My friend Helen from work just came into my office and she had the most beautiful nails. She said she's had this new Shellac treatment done. It was beautiful - her own natural nails. Lasts for at least 2 weeks (circa £25 a pop - some nail salons could differ). Toes are said to last up to 6 weeks.

"Shellac is the breakthrough, patent-pending UV3 technology that combines the ease of wear of polish, with the permanence of gels.  A true innovation in chip-free, extended-wear colour.  Shellac applies like polish—no pots—just a bottle and brush.  And removal is just 10 minutes!  No filing.  No buffing.  No drills."


  1. my hairdresser swears by it and her nails look gorgeous all the time...wish i could afford to get manicures! sigh. i miss having nice nails.

  2. Me too Ola - I spend so much time and money but they always chip and split. At £25 I would do for a special occasion.
