Miracle Manicure – 3 weeks on

I’m always pleased when a product does what it promises, I love it when it surpasses my expectations.

Shellac says that their polish wears flawlessly for 14 days and 3 weeks on, it’s still looking fabulous and I haven’t been careful with them. The only problem is that my nails have grown and the colour is moving up.

So now for the second test, removal. Shellac does sell removal wraps which minimises the contact of acetone with the skin, but at £3 a pack to do all your nails, it does add additional cost to the manicure and they are fiddley to use.

What I would recommend is; buying nail varnish containing acetone (available from boots, superdrug etc.) which you fill a small bowl with. Then put this bowl in a larger bowl of hot water (a bit like a bain-Marie) and pop your nails in and the polish melts off easily.

I’m heading off on holiday in a few weeks and getting a Shellac manicure will be top of my beauty preparation list.
