For the past month or so, I’ve been raving about my CND’s Shellac gel manicures. It really lasts more than two weeks. I finally worked up enough nerve to try another UV gel brand (My hestitation came after the horrible experience with trying the OPI gel manicure. If CND Shellac lasted for two or more weeks, there’s no need to look any further for a gel manicure, right?) But, Harmony’s Gelish brand have so many more glamorous and bold colors than the CND at my local salon. My nail techician assured me that Gelish provided the same results as CND, so why not give it a try?
Here’s the finished product:

Step 7: Cure for 1 minute.

Step 8: Cure for 1 minute.
