I have always been a huge fan of having my nails done. For the past 6 years I have always had acrylic nails and never missed a nail appointment. Moving to Vancouver I noticed the nail trend is a little different and a lot of salons don’t do acrylic or gel as a more “natural” approach to nails is preferred.
Since moving out here I have switched back to my natural nails and have been getting shellac manicures and pedicures.
I honestly recommend shellac because it really does last 2 to 3 weeks and it is not damaging. But only go with the CND Shellac brand because it lasts longer and looks much better than other brands. The con is that it does not come in as many colours.
For me having a nice manicure is a must, I remember being 9 years old and hearing “Always have nice shoes and nice nails” from that day on I promised myself when I was old enough I would and have never broke that promise.
