Saving $600 a year on that Shellac mani!


 

We all love the salon Shellac manicure, because it lasts so long, doesn’t chip and wears like steel. Let’s face it, it’s awesome….but you pay for that awesomeness.  You pay a lot.

Well dames everywhere have been feverishly working, painting, blending and layering at home formulas to come up with a “tough as nails” formula that rivals the pricey salon Shellac and low and behold, the concoction has been birthed; and you can use what ever color you like and have on hand.

You’ll need :
Sally Hansen – HARD AS WRAPS $5
Gelous – ADVANCED NAIL GEL COAT $8
Your Favorite Polish $5
Essie – GOOD TO GO $8

Thin coats that are allowed to dry completely before applying the next coat will offer the best results. Just sit down and watch the news or a show and allow 3-5 minutes between coats. Layer this way for your at-home-tough-stuff-no-chip-long-lasting manicure:

Sally Hansen – HARD AS WRAPS
GELOUS
YOUR POLISH

Your nails will last 10-14 days and this $26 bucks will save you around $600 a year at the nail salon.
