CND Shellac Pink Bikini & Lobster Roll

I recently got a CND Shellac manicure for my last work and personal trips. I just didn't want to worry about nail polish chipping and packing polish. I love Shellac for this reason. It stays! Check out my other CND Shellac posts. I was really excited to try out their new colors, Pink Bikini and Lobster Roll.
I chose Pink Bikini for my vacation manicure. I thought it was bold and summery and it matched my bathing suit. This manicure lasted 2 whole weeks. No chips or sign of wear on the tips, just growth which showed after the first week. Since I'm taking prenatal vitamins the new growth showed a bit sooner than normal.
For my last work trip and for the 4th of July, I chose Lobster Roll. It has a little bit of orange in it, but definitely considered a 'red.' I don't wear red nail polish often, but I like to when I'm wearing beige, blue or black outfits and I know it will act as a pop of color. I'm still rocking this manicure 10 days later. No chips or wear, just new growth.

Gelish Gel Nail Polish

One of the MANY things I love about NYC is that the manicures and pedicures are so super cheap. Today I decided to let someone else 'Shellac' my nails. Usually I do themselves or my bestie Tina does them, but since she's a few states over, I thought I would let the nail salon do it. I'm traveling this week so I wanted to not have to worry about my nails. The salon did have Shellac, but I opted for this Gelish nail polish in Pink Smoothie.

Looks a lot like Shellac Romantique. Gelish had a ton of colors to choose from which was appealing to me. The nail tech said she never had any complains with Gelish. I'll be the judge of that!

I'll keep everyone updated on how it holds up!
