Fashion & Lifestyle: Saving Money & Looking Good! :)


Saving Money & Looking Good! :)

Alright ladies, this is a post you wont want to miss! :) How many of you have OCD like me and hate when your nail polish chips? I also don't like spending $40 a month or have the time to keep my nails looking nice. So let me tell you what you all should do..
(Sorry if any of you do nails and want business but this is for the people that don't do nails and can't justify spending all that money when you can just do it your self!) 
My mom bought a shellac light about two years ago and every time I went up to Logan I would do my nails. It literally takes like 20 - 30 minutes max to do them by yourself and it usually lasts about two weeks. 
Up front you will be paying about $80 - $90 but in the long run you will end up saving a lot! I really like the CND brand I think it works really well and I haven't had any problems with it. I HATE GEL. Shellac is easier to remove and doesn't completely kill my nails like Gel does. But it is up to you everyone has their own personal preference this is just what I like and use. 

*I get all my shellac stuff from Amazon. :) 
1. The light. This is probably the most important thing when it comes to Shellac. I know you can get more expensive lights but again this is the one that I have and it works great for me! 
2.The top and base coat. You can buy these separate but it is up to you! You will need both though. 
AND.... The fun part, the colors! :) 3. & 4. these colors are just random ones that I just chose that are fairly new but I think they are so cute! Especially for Spring & Summer.
*The last thing I forgot to add was rubbing alcohol. You can buy this but rubbing alcohol is cheaper and works great for me! :) 

You can go here for instructions on how to do your own shellac. 
Let me know if you have any questions and thanks for reading!
