So far so good, with only one chip and a whole lot of shine! Check out these photos and swatches from Day 5 of my CND Shellac gel manicure in shade Strawberry Smoothie!

*If you missed it, you can view photos and swatches from Day 1 of my Shellac manicure here, with details on the gel manicure process and where to get it done!  As you may have heard, gel nail polish is supposed to last without chipping between two to three weeks if done right.  Is that true?  Find out here!

Day 5 Shellac Manicure Results & Photos…

Meilily: CND Gel Manicure 1

Meilily Product Pick, Photos & Swatches: Long-lasting CND Shellac Gel Nail Polish Manicure!

If you’re like me and can’t help but mess up a manicure before even leaving the salon chair – painted nails a scraggly mess by day two – then you’re in luck! There is a revolutionary new nail polish, gel nail polish, that is rapidly rising in popularity. It is a cross between a regular polish and gel nails set with UV light.  This gel polish is painted onto natural nails just like regular polish, but cured under UV light layer by layer.

I recently tested out this new gel manicure and came away with my fingernails transformed into glossy, shiny gems of polished goodness, an effect that lasted two whole weeks!

The salon I went to used CND Shellac polish and also Harmony Gelish products. The shade I tried on and photographed is CND Shellac in Strawberry Smoothie. Love it! › Continue reading
