Many times we are in decision overload. Do you want pink or green? Shiny or matte? And the list goes on and on.
When choosing your nail color, you may want to test out shellac colors if you are opting for that type of manicure.
In all honesty, shellac or a regular polish is really up to you. Shellac is good if you want a longer lasting manicure but to be honest, I have had both last equally as long. The shellac and regular polish can be great. I have used the CND top coat and it really does last.
Shellac can give you different options on color because it's typically not something that you would find in the store. It's important to note that in my experience, even though these are supposed to last longer, I have found that they can chip, just like regular nail polish. This isn't typical but it is important to note that it could happen.
If you opt for a traditional nail color, you can always shop Target, Walmart for colors. Essie is a GREAT brand and the colors are ALWAYS beautiful and on trend. Take the brand to the salon and see how beautiful your new nail polish is on you!
