WTF?! My Shellac Manicure Lasted 7 Days!

As you know, I got a CND Shellac manicure about a week ago. It's a Power Polish that is supposed to last 14 days. Well, my mani only lasted 7 days. In CND's defense, it's probably all my fault. I spend 40-60 hours a week typing on a computer keyboard, I obsessively wash my hands after I use the bathroom, after I get to work, after I get back home from work, so my nails didn't stand a chance. Here's what happened...

Friday I noticed that the polish on my right thumb nail was beginning to peel off. Seeing that I could easily rip it off, I couldn't resist. I took my left thumb nail and dug it under the polish and a giant strip came off. I then noticed that the rest of my fingernails also has thin layers of polish that were ready to be peeled. And being the slight nail lacquer perfectionist, I had to take it all off. (You will probably never ever see me with a chipped manicure.)

I used the remover wraps CND provided. I ultimately had to scrape the polish off because I didn't have acetone nail polish remover and the remover wraps require 100% acetone. I'm not a fan of acetone because it's extremely drying to your cuticles. (SAY NO TO HANG NAILS!) Ultimately, I don't think I'd get a Shellac manicure ever again. Well, maybe when I have the cash to get one every 7 days...
