Sorry Shellac!

Throughout the last few months of 2012 I resorted to the new craze in nail care: Shellac - you know, the gel nail polish which dries in like 10 minutes given you keep still underneath the blue light machine thing? Yeah. Turns out, it's not for people like me. You know, the type who get fussy over the colour after a week or so. 

Tragic story cut short; I would usually peel them off leaving my nails completely ruined! So lately, I'm back with just doing my own nails. I'm not too crazy with how I do them, I'm more of a fan of natural nails rather than acrylic too. 

So I grabbed out my OPI and with a little faith, trust and pixie dust I was able to successfully paint my nails without a smudge mark in site! Yay!


  1. I'm so jealous of your nail painting capabilities! Whenever I do mine I can't seem to sit still for long enough to let them dry without smudging them, either that or my notoriously unsteady hand will get the better of me. Love your colour choices too.


    1. haha thanks amber! :) yeah, I used to have that problem - or even worse, I'd paint my nails two hours before I'd go to sleep and wake up with little fabric lines printed onto them! I used to analyse how the ladies who did my nails paint, they seem to start from both sides of the nail then finish with a stroke down the middle. I was mind blown! x
