A wee while ago, I won a giveaway on the lovely Annabella's blog Skin Scrubs for a £50 Wahanda voucher! As I've been really busy recently, I hadn't had a chance to choose anything but with my birthday fast approaching (30, eeek!), and several nights out and activities planned for the week, I thought it was a good chance to have a Shellac manicure so I wouldn't have to worry about chipping my polish.
I've previously tried Nail's Inc's 3 week manicure (review here), but have never tried Shellac before, despite it probably being the most popular of the permanent manicures. I went for the shade Purple Purple, which is a gorgeous blue / purple colour with an almost pearlescent sheen to it.
The photos were taken in direct sunlight and seem to look more blue than purple, but I can assure you there is certainly a large amount of purple present. These photos were actually taken four days after the manicure and it still looks perfect so I am confident my manicure will withstand my week of partying!
Have you tried Shellac before?
