Shellac or Gel nails are the 'in' thing at the moment, and I expect it to stay that way for a while.
About a month ago, whilst in the UK, I got a Shellac manicure. And it is still on now.
Shellac lasts for about 2-4 weeks, depending on care. Making it ideal! I used to hate getting my nails done, because clumsy me would always chip them! And being the perfectionist I am, it would irritate me immensely!
However, trying to get Shellac off at home, is extremely difficult. You need to soak each hand in a nail polish remover that has an acetone formula. In fact, it is easier to just go to the salon and get them done again... Or at least that is what I tell my partner!
