Well all my Shellac stuff arrived in the post today and I just couldn't wait to try it out!
OMG I see what the hype is about- it FABULOUS!! I've done my own nails with dark lava and the colour is beautiful :Love::Love::Love:
It did take me 50 mins lol but I'm sure I'll improve on that over time.
Going to be flashing my nails about now and get some customers- VERY impressed!:D:D:D

Good colour choice, it's gorgeious isn't it?! 50 mins isn't too bad for your first attempt, especially doing it on yourself. You will be addicted now you've tried it!

If you order the wall rack souz it comes with a plastic colour guide (like a collection of colour pops) with all the colours on it, it's brilliant. Some of them look so different to how I'd imagined! Tropix looks fab, I can see why it's so popular. A lovely pinky coral. Similar to I Eat Mainely Lobster if you're familiar with OPI enamel colours! :D

Tropix is really nice! Very summery, I've put it on my toes :D
I want to try some other colours out- I'm going to waste loads on myself lol
The colour nail tip chart that comes with the rack/spinner is so useful as some of the colours look different in the bottle to how they look on!
I just keep staring at my fingers as they look so shiny and lovely- even my husband noticed and said that my nail polish looked HD!!!:D

Heads up... If you get a lot of sunlight, you'll ruin your shellac... And any other uv based product. Make yourself a tent, or shield, to put over her hands while working out there. :) perhaps you already knew that, but just in case...

Just to add to this, I removed my shellac yesterday and was gobsmacked at how quick and easy it was! It really does come off perfectly in 10 mins:D
The only product that I can even vaguely compare it too is cuccio soak of gel ( which I didn't find good really) and there is just no comparison whatsoever!!!
I will happily and confidentially be able to offer Shellac to my clients knowing how fabulous it is!!!
And to think when I first joined this site I wrote a post titled ' what's so special about Shellac?' LOL......everything is!!:D:D:D

Sounds fab, I am so excited for mine to arrive! I ordered the new package last week and can't wait to have a play about with layering and the additives! Some of the pictures on here are amazing :)

I loved reading your comments, my Shellac is coming tomorrow and nobody else 'gets' how excited I am about it !! I've lost sleep thinking about all the different colours, layering options and effects that I can do and how I am going to incorporate them into my business.

I haven't tried it yet, although I now have 10 colours excluding my french white and pink. So I think that is a good start to my colours :)

I will be removing my gelish tonight and trying Shellac on myself tomorrow

I do gelish but have a CND lamp and keep thinking I may have to do the training for shellac, saw dark lava in the S2 catalogue and it looks lush, similar to my fave gelish colour - bella's vampire, have fun :) xx

Well, I did my Shellac for the first time today. It will take some getting used too from Gelish, as obviously with it not being a Gel, it is abit more runny. I also notice it can look abit more streaky too. But it still give a beautiful shine, and will hopefully last well for me.
