Meilily Product Pick, Photos & Swatches: Long-lasting CND Shellac Gel Nail Polish Manicure!
I recently tested out this new gel manicure and came away with my fingernails transformed into glossy, shiny gems of polished goodness, an effect that lasted two whole weeks!
Each layer is typically cured one hand at a time so that one hand gets painted while the other cures.  The timing works out well, but they usually say to give it about 50 minutes total.
Gel polish manicures vary in price by the salon, but I found a salon in San Francisco that charges $28 while another salon in the same city charges $37!  So, shop around!
October 16, 2015 by Laura Silva 4 Comments Recently my friend Trisha sent me the new TruShine gel enamel system to try out. Apply a thin layer of color coat, brush over the free edge of the nail, use an orange stick to remove excess from around the nail and cure with the LED lamp for 45 seconds. It is easiest to complete your four fingers on one hand from start to finish, then do your other hand, and finish up with your thumbs. Here are my final thoughts on this gel system and then scroll to the end to enter to win a Jamberry gift certificate!
Expensive initial investment – however, since you can do at least five application and removals with this kit without purchasing any additional supplies, it works out to $24 per manicure. After following the steps base coat, lite, coat of color, lite, coat of color, lite, top coat lite. Laura's Crafty Life was created to share my love of crafting and to inspire you to craft a creative and well-lived life! The traditional acrylic application process includes a rubber cement-like consistency primer being dipped into acrylic powder, quickly heated in light, and brushed over the nail. For the pictures above, my nail technician sanded in preparation for both the acrylics and gels, and because she was applying the different nail enhancements simultaneously, I did place my acrylic nails under UV light, although it was probably not needed to cure them.
Although I see the appeal of artificial nail enhancements, I still prefer my natural nails’ shape. I hope this gives you the information you need to choose between natural or natural-looking artificial nail enhancements. I have acrylic overlay on my nails right now, I have natural nails that are so weak and bendy without the overlay that when I wash my hair, crochet, type ect. PS I am looking into doing the gel polish… but dont think that it would stay on my nails… wht do you think about the gel polish ?

Because of bad planning on my part, Daniel actually wound up sitting in the salon through the entire glitter manicure. I’m reading this while eating my lunch having taken the leap and had my first gel manicure.
Yes, I have, but it’s worth it to me to have my nails done by a professional every now and then. Ok, I’ve been slightly obsessed with the nude + black ombre tips since you first tweeted them.
Loving your gel mani’s… they look awesome, and your gal at Sakura is definitely doing a really fantastic job!
I’m currently wearing taupe base with black glitter fade, which isn’t too glittery and I like it a lot! I want to do the gold sparkle one on my nails, but I don’t own black nail polish… but not for long!
Nails will easily stay this glossy over time – Amazing!  You can also see subtle layers of shimmer sitting atop each nail, and shades can be combined. I typically only have to remove the gel because I have growth at the nail bed, not because it is chipping or peeling off. Simply tear open a gel remover pocket along the dotted line and peel off the plastic shield to reveal the adhesive strip.

First there was orangey-red, then super-shiny black…and now I’ve gotten a little bit flashier with black ombre tips and with my current set, a glittery gold gradation over black.
I think I spent close to three hours (!!!) having them done, which I can’t really see ever doing again no matter how cool my nails looked when I was done. I’d gone in intending to just go back to simple, solid black, but the stylist, Sandy, managed to convince me that what I really wanted was a whole bunch of glitter.
But I was completely enthralled through most of it, particularly during the glitter application. I have been wanting to do these forever, but always get a little nervous because I’ve heard it can be so hard on your nails.
I think it makes a HUGE difference how they’re removed, though, and yes, I do have the manicurist remove the Calgel for me. I don’t have black nailpolish because I never wanted to paint my whole nails black but the way you use is is amazing.
I am also a but of a nail but but more importantly ever since I saw it I have been on a HUNT for that thumb ring, WHERE DID U GET IT?!

My nails normally don’t look so good – I will definitely never get a regular manicure again!
I had another at home gel system I had been using but I wasn’t thrilled about the UV light or the fact that the enamel contains so many toxins. Insert your finger into the remover pocket, positioning your nail against the moistened pad.
The curing process takes just minutes, and your nails won't chip or peel for 2-3 weeks! While acrylics dry, they feel as if they tighten on the natural nail, and end up rigid and strong. I have noticed some pin head red dots developing around my cuticles and sides of fingers, and I have peeling skin as far bk as the first knuckle.
I have done several “tests” on clients where i have done one hand shellac and one hand luxio and EVERYONE said the luxio lasted about a week longer! If you believe your item was damaged during shipping, Customer Service will need photographs showing the damaged packaging as well as "Proof of Damage" documentation to process your exchanging or refund.

I form loyalties to businesses very quickly if they do good work and have happy employees, so I’m still going to Sakura on the Lower East Side. I guess the biggest contributor is always wearing rubber gloves when I do dishes and clean.
I have long, pianist fingers (probably from playing classic piano for 10 years) and the gloves feel tight and cheap to me! Also, since it lasts 3-4 weeks, I’m exposed to far less solvent in the form of acetone (it comes off with regular nail polish remover) than I would be if I was doing my nails weekly or bi-weekly. I have seen a couple different kits around(including the uv light)and I am really curious about them. I am told that I am prob allergic to the monomer that is being used… and I have gone to three four different nail salons and still have the same issue.
Alternatively, you can open the item in front of the delivery person and if you find that it was damaged during shipping, you can reject it. After the gold micro-glitter went on, Sandy applied the larger, holographic pieces of glitter one at a time. The only real downside is that they only come in pink, which is at odds with my kitchen…but I can deal. The way my salon removes the Calgel is by using the same method I do for removing glitter polish: Saturate a piece of a cotton square with acetone-based nail polish remover, place on nail, wrap finger in aluminum foil, wait 10 minutes, wipe off. I do use the wraps, however, I have oily nail beds and if I am doing a lot of crafts or DIY projects after application, they just don’t hold up as well as I would like. That manicure stayed intact for close to a month, but by the time it was removed the new nail growth was crazy.
Truth be told, after almost three weeks I’m kind of tired of having this much glitter on me at all times. I always push my cuticles back a little bit with the towel when I dry my hands after washing them. I think I might treat myself to ombre at the end of the year as they look so…well…perfect! Most of the time it all comes off cleanly, and any stubborn bits of gel just get pushed off easily with an orange stick. If my hands are really feeling dried out and scaly (which is often this time of year) I use Weleda Skin Food—Evan swears by it as well. Other than abrading the surface of the gel to allow the remover to penetrate the top layer, there’s no filing involved at all. It’s easy to make your own and store it in a little dropper bottle on your bedside table.
