Shellac Manicure Experience
Today, I was in the mood for a mani and pedi (only happens a couple of times a year) and went to Luxury Nail Spa in Durham on Erwin Rd. Let me just say that it's a really nice salon and everyone was really friendly! I explained to them that I wanted a gel overlay, but I didn't want the artificial nails. The technician suggested the Shellac Manicure. He explained it was very similar to gel nails, but you can take it off with acetone polish remover and it should last about TWO WEEKS. They don't have to file your nails down, so there's no damage. I was sold.
I will see how the next two weeks go and if they hold up. The price was $35 plus an additional $5 for the french.
