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.

  1. I so love the idea of this! But like you said, stuck with one color and not eve a single ring finger design will bore me to death! I'm sure they'll be coming up with something soon, so I'll wait!

  2. I cant wait to get mine done. I bought a voucher off of buywithme.com. I've heard nothing but great things about shellac
