I was in sore need of a manicure. I've been doing Shellac nails most of the year, and a manicure with Shellac lasts about two weeks. I was waiting for my kids, so decided to look for a nail place. I found this one. They charged me the same as my usual nail salon, but she didn't do anything to my cuticles at all. All she did was soak the old Shellac off, file my nails down, give them a quick buff, and polished them. PLUS, she didn't polish the tip of my nails and just underneath, so now, less than a week later, the tips of every nail are white.
