CND Shellac Manicure
UV Gel manicures have gotten a bad rap in the past, between the nearly impossible removal that damaged nails to the not-so-long-lasting effects of the finish. Enter Shellac, a UV gel manicure available in a slew of trendy colors, guaranteed to last up to 14 days. You leave the salon with completely dry nails so any smudge, chip, or flaw crisis is adverted. (In fact, after getting "Shellac'd" for the first time, CND Co-Founder Jan Arnold made us reach into a bowl filled with keys, which in itself is enough to make any freshly manicured hand clench up. Long story short, our nails emerged, still flawless.) To top it all off, the removal is done at the salon with pre-packaged soak wraps that you wear on each finger. With a professional tending to your nails, you know you're in good hands.
