Last week I did a video tutorial on how to do your own version of shellack nail polish at home. (If you missed it, check it out. I also drank TWO Long Island iced teas.)
That was Wednesday last week, and the first tiny chip in the nail polish showed up on Friday:
I’m pleased to say, though, that the manicure still looks pretty darn great. Today is Monday and between Wednesday and now I’ve done lots of chip-causing activities, including making 150 name badges, washing my hair, putting sheets on the bed, and doing a fucking terrible medicine ball workout.
But, here, you be the judge. Here’s my manicure on Day 6 (Monday) (I’m counting Wednesday as Day 1.):
And that’s my right (dominant) hand, so I’d say that’s pretty darn impressive. I’m going to leave it on for another week, I think, and see how it does. If I can make it two weeks with it relatively intact, I will be uber impressed. Usually my manicures last a week before they look terrible and I have no doubt that this one will still be lookin’ pretty sweet tomorrow at the 1-week mark.
I did crack the actual nail of the index finger on my left hand. (God knows how– I just noticed it one day, kind of like the phantom bruises I get everywhere. Maybe I sleepwalk.) So I’ll probably repair that so it doesn’t crack all the way across and make me cut my nail short. That’s not cheating, right?
Anyway, A+++++ so far on this shit. I love it. (Nobody paid me to say that, but I would accept money if you’re listening, Gelous people… Heh.)
