Shellac - My First Time

Welcome to topic 5 of the 2014 Blogger Challenge. The topic this time is nails and I was so excited about this post as I knew it would be something completely different for me!

As I'm sure most of you know by now, I am a massive nail varnish addict. I own over 100 bottles of nail varnish and can't leave Superdrug or Boots without buying a new one! I've been good lately though after putting myself on a nail varnish spending ban! Until last week when I bought 3 new ones … oops! Bring a pro hoarder of every nail colour under the sun, I usually paint my own nails. However having just started working for Dior, I can't be dealing with redoing my nails every 2-3 days. So I decided to introduce myself to the addictive world of Shellac and gel manicures! 

I am literally in love with them already as my nails are so soft and I can't stop looking at them! I decided to go for a pillar box red shade with a subtle shimmer as we're releasing a new men's fragrance at work tomorrow so I thought red was more appropriate than bright pink!

What do you think of the shade I went for? Do you get Shellac/gel nails? Any colour recommendations for next time?



  1. Wow! What a pretty shade and so shiny. Love it!

    1. It was so nice, I think it was called Hollywood Red! X

  2. That's a beautiful colour!

    I've had gelish nails done many times before, usually when I go on hols, as I can never keep them looking nice due to my day job.

    1. It was lovely! Ah that's a shame, although mine chipped quite quickly so not sure I'll be keeping them up! X
