Yeah shellac you need to get done professionally. Next time you go away I can gelicure you before you go!

Does shellac have to be professionally removed?

Well ideally but no it doesn't have to, you can do it yourself.

Some salons sell the CND remove tubes so you can do it at home. But you don't have to buy these.... basically you saturate a cotton pad with acetone or acetone based polish remover, put it on your nail then wrap your nail tightly in foil to keep it in place and then leave them for 10 minutes. If it's genuine CND Shellac it should be pretty much all flaked off after 10 minutes, 15 at most.

For other gel polishes I wouldn't recommend removing yourself because they often need a bit of a buff and don't come off as easily. You can do some real damage to the nail if you're a bit over zealous.

You may have noticed that I kinda disappeared! I just looked through my spreadsheet and it appears that in the last six months, I have bought four bottles of nail polish. I have to be all responsible with money now.

Anyway, Zoya has brought back some of their mattes for a limited time, and I really want to buy back-ups of my very favorite polish ever, but I'm so hesitant to spend the money. Money on nail polish... what, no. And that's funny since I have 490 bottles.

Haha, me too. I don't think I have 490 but still, a lot and I think i've bought like...10 bottles since we moved? I did do a Zoya BOGO shortly after we moved so that was 8, so I guess 12 total this year is a better guess. And it's really because I honestly have almost every color of the rainbow that I could want. Also crazy glitters seem to have fallen out of trend and that's usually what sucks the money out of my wallet.

I'm a sucker for glitter. I don't know why because I don't actually wear them that often.

So, I got an email about this from Butter today:
http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/product ... rod5900463

I hope Zoya comes out with something similar (and more affordable!) - because $40 for that set is just way way waaaaaaay too much.

Deborah Lippmann has something similar, too! Maybe it'll be a thing! (DL is about the same price.)

I'm loving my new flakey topcoat more than I thought I would. It doesn't look great in my pic but the flakes reflect different colors in the light. Butter london bramble with brass monkey topcoat.

That's really pretty Butternut!

I couldn't stand the regrowth anymore so I Gelicured them yesterday. This is Vampire Red and some rhinestones.

Lovely Butternut and Baps!

Ok, serious nail polish question, friends: I am going to Ireland for a month... how much nail polish should I take? Am I totally crazy that I think a minimum of 3 is necessary? (Plus base and topcoat?) Maybe I should just buy some when I'm there to try some brands we don't have in the US? I have been seriously pondering these questions...

last week i finally gave zoya pixie dust a whirl. i bought one of the "team spirit" trios (the only one with pixie dusts, navy/silvery gold/orange), so this is sunshine. i forgot to take pictures until it was already day four, so sorry about the wear and tear.

i actually liked this a lot more than i thought i would, and i don't think the pictures do it justice. it's a strange texture to get used to, for sure, but the look was really pretty, like navy blue sugar.

after that i switched to another one of my new ones, zoya toni.

A minimum of 3 is completely reasonable! But I'd definitely also be looking for non-US brands, so make sure you save a little cosmetics space for the extras you'll grab.

I went ahead and bought 2 bottles of Zoya's Dovima (from the re-released matte collection). I wasn't going to because I didn't want to spend money, but with my Halloween coupon, I was able to get both bottles for $9 with free shipping. That's $4.50 per bottle! SCORE. Dovima is one of my favorite polishes, but I haven't worn it in ages, because I didn't want to use up my bottle (I have 1/3 left). I really hope they didn't reformulate it.

i'm rocking a full mani/pedi in BL all hail the queen, as of earlier tonight. i LOVE this color, and ever since i watched a youtube video (about eyeshadow) that featured some awesome nude nails, i've been wanting to wear this one (and i'm already plotting the mani switch to BL yummy mummy next week).

oh! i also complimented a stranger (someone who works at the humane society i volunteer at, but i don't know her name or anything) on her nails today, and learned that she was wearing CND vinylux! she couldn't remember the name of the color, but i googled and i'm pretty sure it's rubble. it was really pretty, and she just raved about the vinylux.

I love all hail the queen. I stare at it constantly when I wear it.

Today, for thanksgiving spirit, I have on BL scuppered. I don't think it will last through all my cooking so I'm trying to think what I should do next.

I am wearing Nails Inc Baker Street. I love the color but I don't have base or top coat with me so it chipped in one day.

My mama's treating me to a gel/shellac mani Saturday, and I'm wondering if anyone knows which are vegan? I know CND is, but her salon doesn't have a huge color selection... and searching through this massive thread I think I saw that gelicure is vegan, but have not heard of that line before.

Danke!

CND Shellac, Nubar's Gelicure, Jessica's Geleration, Orly Gel FX - all of these are good. China Glaze has also apparently brought out a gel polish but I don't know the name of it yet.

OPI's GelColor is vegan but although OPI are technically cruelty free, they are owned by Coty so up to you if you're happy with using them.

I know Young Nails Mani-Q is cruelty free but I don't know about vegan-ness.

The other one I'm not sure of is Nail Harmony's Gelish - their MSD sheets used to, until very recently, mention testing on rats. But they've removed this now and said they don't animal test. But I'm not sure.

Whoa, so Zoya's BF deal is REALLY good:

http://zoya.com/content/category/Zoya_D ... _Sets.html

Even if you have a few colors in the dream box, if you have $72 to spend otherwise it's a really good deal and you can give those extra colors away as gifts. You could even order one of them empty dream boxes, fill them with colors you want, and then when they get to you just put the colors you're going to gift into the second dream box.

I'm not getting it because a) money and b) I have so much polish, but it's definitely the best vegan beauty deal i've seen for this weekend.

First mani/pedi in two months! I'm wearing China Glaze Velvet Bow (http://www.vampyvarnish.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/China-Glaze-Velvet-Bow.jpg), and I love it. The salon had Vinylux though, and I'm kind of bummed I didn't try that. They're doing a 20% grand opening special for a bit longer, so maybe I'll go back!

I'm wearing gelicure lustful red with their red glittery topcoat and a snowflake accent finger that I did with acrylic paint. Crappy pic though, sorry, it's brighter in real life.
