Im probably a little slow to jump on the Shellac bandwagon, as a lot of my friends and fellow media have known about it for quite some time, but better late than never!
I visited the lovely Amber at Verdo Nails in Parnell for my first Shellac mani Amber is the first in NZ to get the brand new 2011 Shellac colours (not officially launched in NZ until May 2011), so I am probably the first in NZ to be sporting the brand new Black Pool Shellac shade on my nails!
The reason I love Shellac is, not only is the finish super shiny, it is super hard-wearing. I can be a little clumsy when it comes to my hands and they get banged around a lot, (especially from typing all day long on my keyboard) and a normal mani for me last a maximum of three days before chipping. But Im happy to say Im nearly a week in and the finish is still completely perfect and looking like new. And even better – Shellac is VERY quick-drying as in it dries in about five minutes. So no more of the dreaded knocking and ruining your manicure within 10 minutes of getting it!
I definitely recommend a visit to Amber at Verdo Nails to try this for yourself not only has she got the newest colours before anyone else, shes one of the nicest people I know for more info on Shellac and other services check out www.verdonails.co.nz.
That's my hand above with my shiny new nails in 'Black Pool'
