DIY Shellac

Hello there!!! It's been awhile since I posted. I'll be honest it's been shit around here lately. Tumors have been popping up all over the shop, most recently my jaw which has left me with a drop to the left side of my mouth, much like a stroke and my speech is now impeded like one as well.
Needless to say I have been feeling very down on myself and how I look.
So I took myself off to the hairdressers and had it all cut off and went mad on eBay :)



I had a old UV lamp from years ago doing my own nails so I purchased base coat, shellac and topcoat. So I dropped two lobsters ($40) on that lot and did my own shellac.


All you need to do is apply the base coat and cure under lamp for 3 mins, apply the shellac and cure for 3 mins extra coat if you want and top coat for 3 mins. Then wipe off the sticky top coat with remover. DONE



So proud of myself just saved myself about $350 in the next three months.
When I want to change colour or get sick of them I will just soak them in remover in these lil babies I picked up on EBay




There is nothing like a haircut and nails to bring a spring back in your swagger :)

  2. Thanks Chic!! Bleh to issues, but yay to saving options, notice I didn't mention what else I bought for fear of incriminating myself to partner type trolls :)

  5. So sorry to hear that you have been unwell Beth. A haircut and nails would help a bit I am sure. My nails are feral. No amount of anything would help. I imagine not being able to talk properly would be horrible, and i imagine you being quite a talker. I hope you are ok. Much love gorgeous lady. xx
