I haven't worn nail polish in YEARS because it just doesn't stick to my nails... and well, I don't sit still well. So why have to torture myself with an hour of dry time for something that will rub off in a few days. Until shellac... I tried it the first time a few months ago and it really does stay on my nails! For two weeks! The only reason I have to change it is because my nails grow like weeds and the grow out gets pretty bad after two weeks. While I love my nail tech, I'm also a cheapskate so I bought the things to do my nails myself. This is a purple sparkly coat with a coat of pink glitter on top. I'm having trouble getting good color... will try to take another picture in dappled sunlight sometime.
