Final update on Shellac manicure

I don't have any pictures for this yet, but I just wanted to update and say that I ended up keeping the Shellac mani on for 5 weeks!! It never chipped anymore than the initial small chip, the problem was grow-out. The stuff was hard as hell to remove though! I did the wrapping my nails in foil after putting on a cotton ball with pure acetone and 10 minutes did nothing to it. I did another 10 minutes and then scraped and scraped and scraped. To be honest, I still couldn't get all of the base stuff off so it kind of messed up my nails a little bit. I can't wear a cream polish right now, even after using Essie Fill the Gap. All in all, the manicure was a success but I don't really like to keep polish on that long, so I probably won't get getting another one. I do have some gel polish systems and a UV light so I will be doing some experiments on my own, of course I will post them when I do!

NOTW - Sephora by OPI Naughty is the New Nice & To the Glitter End

Here's my nail of the weekend. I was sick and in the hospital for a while, hence the lack of posts. I've finally just been up to doing my nails and makeup again.

You can see reflections here from my black shirt and red camera.

This is a better representation of the color. I love this combination.
To the Glitter End is one of those super huge glitter that you can't really brush on. I just kind of pat it on so the glitters are where I want them, and then go over it after it's dried a little to get the extra liquid stuff off, because there seems to be a ton of it in there. Definitely have to cover this up with Seche Vite, otherwise I find the Sephora by OPI polishes in general chip pretty easily on their own.
