I know I know, not one of the choices but after speaking to the lovely ladies at the nail place we decided that because I've had acrylic for such a long time, I need to let me nails get stronger gradually. So, the shellacs will enable my nails breath underneath the polish so will help them get stronger at the same time.
One of my main reasons to get rid of the acrylics is to make my nails look more natural and not so long!
As always, they have been done beautifully. I swear by the ladies at the shop. Not only do they do amazing nail stuff they are also really friendly, remember your name (which I think is really important) and they also remember where you are in life and what you were last talking about.
