CND Nail Shellac

My coworker swears by these shellac manicures she gets with special gel polish that cures via UV light.
She says they last 2 or 3 weeks without chipping, and I have to admit that whenever I see her, they do look great.

But they cost so much more to do when you get a manicure that I would rather do it at home.
You have to get the special CND shellac polish and a UV drying light. They say you also need to get the base and topcoat polishes, but I bet you could do it without. Not sure though, since I haven't used anything like this before.

They sell a special CND UV dryer but again, I think you could probably get by with a cheapie one from Amazon.

There aren't too many colors out yet but they are coming out with more in the fall and the ones they do have are pretty.

Here's a hard-hitting article about shellac. Apparently, buying single bottles online is illegal, but I find that hard to believe.
