If there happen to be any men reading this, I'm warning you to stop reading now or you are likely to die of boredom. LOL.
So I haven't had my fingernails professionally done in over a year. This is mostly due to the fact that acrylics completely thrash my nails, and polish doesn't stay on for more than 2 days (that's if you don't mess it up on your way out the door at the nail salon). I've gotten pretty good at painting my own nails, so I have been doing that for the past year, but it's really hard to find time in my busy schedule to paint them and I still have the issue with chipping.
So Courtney and I had a long day at work today and decided to treat ourselves to a manicure at Groovy Nails. We got the Gel Polish and it was reasonably affordable. This stuff is so amazing. It is painless... no drilling, no messy powder. It's just a UV Gel (shellac) that is applied directly on top of your nails that is supposed to stay perfect for 2 weeks. I'm completely hooked. I am fully convinced that once you go shellac, you'll never go back!
Go treat yourself to this! It's worth every penny.
