Hi beauties! So recently, I was browsing around on Pinterest and I discovered a miracle. How many of you pay so much to get shellac put on your nails? Yea, all of you! Luckily, I am about to give you the products to use so you never have to pay a fortune again!
The key polish in this is the green topped one: GELOUS: ADVANCED NAIL GEL COAT. You can find it at any Sally's Beauty Store and it is only around $5.00! Also Don't forget to pick your favorite color polish and your top coat. I recommend OUT THE DOOR Top Coat. This is a very glossy and fast drying polish. Now that you are set... let's go over the process (yayyayay):
BEFORE EVERYTHING: SWIPE YOUR NAILS WITH NAIL POLISH REMOVER TO GET ANY OILS OFF YOUR NAILS. THIS WILL GIVE BEST RESULTS!
Step 1: Apply two thin coats of Gelous. However, make sure you let them dry for about 5 minutes in between each coat.
Step 2: Paint your color on your nails. Be sure to get the top and edge of the nail too- this helps it not to chip. Let this dry pretty well (about 5 minutes).
Step 3: Apply a thick coat of Gelous. Don't let it dry completely... keep it kinda dewey.
Step 4: Paint your color again (go a little thicker than last time).
Step 5: Once dry... put the top coat on your nails.
Annnnnnd.. VOILA! You have shellac nails!!!
So far I love the way this works! It has lasted for about 2 weeks for me, and I hope it does the same for you!
