I have lately been getting many younger girls coming and booking appointments online for acrylic or gel nails. Getting nails is a big step for young ladies and social media makes it seem so normal that tweens think: ‘No big deal”. But they are.
Shellac nails are a nail lovers dream come true. No longer the days where it only lasts 2 days, and the waiting……. and the waiting…… and more waiting… and the “Sh*t. I touched them.”
Shellac (which is a brand name) is a gel polish which cures in a LED/UV light. They are dry the second they come out of that bad boy and are supposed to last up to 2-4 weeks. But what if they don’t? What happened? Who’s fault is it? Should I get my money back?
Last week I was asked by a young woman if I would come to her Grandmother’s nursing home and give her a last present: a manicure.
I want to warn you: grab your box of tissues now..
With princess parties, watching mummy and all the new makeup barbie heads and other toys like that, little girls really want to play with makeup. Yes they usually end up looking like the joker, but its cute and usually safe. But what about nail polish?
yes hunny you’re soo pretty *cringe*
Regular makeup we know has natural ingredients and if its for your face, the assumption is that its safe. But Nail polish lasts for days-weeks! We know its made up of harsh chemicals, but which ones? Is it safe?
