Black lace shrug/top: Secondhand
The nailpolish on my right hand nail was peeling a bit so I peeled it off out of interest (and probably a bit of OCD). It's a very different texture to normal nailpolish, rubbery and soft instead of hard and flaky.
It is lasting so much longer than normal nailpolish which is nice, although the few more chips I got and the peeling at the side thing was a bit annoying.
Sorry for the blurry pic. See the tiiiiiny chips? They would only bother an OC person like me, but they are sooo much better than they would be with normal nailpolish!
This nail: Black nailpolish with Night Cat Top Coat by mode. The pieces of tinsel or whatever you call them are huge and slightly holographic, a very impressive effect!
Tiny chip on left index finger too, now.
So my thoughts on Shellac Nails so far? I looooove them and I would do them constantly if I was not a little worried about the UV lamps. I can't find any research that is either here or there. I will have to keep looking. Let me know if you find anything definite. So far I have one decent article either way.
