I jumped on the Shellac nail train this week and it went NOWHERE fast

Before I got 'lacked it sounded all sunshine and butterflies--dries instantly, un-chippable, won't peel off, strengthens your nails.  Well that is a load of shit. After two days of waitressing I had chips on multiple fingers and entire nails peel off! The whole point of my venture was to keep ma nails looking fresh while I was on the job. #fail

The only good thing about shellac is that it hardens immediately under a UV light.  For anyone who spent their adolescence going in and out of an orthodontist's office--the polish hardens the same way that braces glue does. Whatever, I was over braces when I was 18 anyways. (Yeah, I had them until I was 18. Loved high school.)

Lucky for me I still have a ton of sparkly, printed, colourful nail supplies that I bought in Japan. Peace shellac! I'll do it myself, as per usual.

  1. Whenever your nails chip with shellac before 14 days it is because the process was done incorrectly. The nail technician did not apply the shellac correctly or did not P.E.P the nails.
