Shellac Nails - update

After 2 1/2 weeks, I finally had to take off the Shellac UV nail polish that I talked about in a recent post.  So, was it worth the extra $15 to get that "special polish" at the salon???  I will say yes!!!  They were totally right that it doesn't chip.  I only had 2 little chips (one because I cut off a piece of my nail with a knife when I was cutting tomatoes, and the other was a weak nail that just peeled off a little).  I'm right-handed, and my left hand nails looked as if I had just walked out of the salon. The ONLY reason I decided the polish needed to come off was because my nails had grown out enough to where there was a gap between my cuticles and the polish.

However, here is the con:
-It's more difficult to remove than regular polish-
It took about 15 minutes to remove the polish...I had to soak my nails in acetone and scrape it off.  This was a pain, as I don't have much patience when it comes to nail maintenance!

Here's a pic right before I removed the polish, after it had been on 2 1/2 weeks (it's very blurry, I know!).  It was still very glossy and chip-free!
