On September 8, 2011 I went to Jean Leon Salon (see review HERE)to get my CND Shellac Mani in Hot Pop Pink. I really loved the color of the gel, and was hoping it lasted as long as it promised – 2 weeks. It’s been nearly 3 weeks (1 day under 3 weeks) and besides new growth and slight lifting on my thumb nail, the manicure lasted through constant hand washing, dish washing, cleaning and more.
I finally ended up getting the gel soaked off on Thursday, September 29, 2011. I went to Polish Bar Brooklyn (Clinton Hill location) to get a Brown Sugar Pedicure and Mani. I used a lifebooker.com coupon that my friend Shannon purchased for me for my birthday. I really wish I were able to use the coupon to get a gel mani again. It’s only been three days, and my nails look like crap!
I will definitely get a gel manicure again because it makes life so much easier, especially with a baby. The only downside to having one is that you’re “Stuck” with one color for 2 weeks.
