Shellac Nails At Dylan Bradshaw

Myself and my lovely blogger friend Donna had a few hours to spare between appointments last Thursday. So on Wednesday, we thought why not treat ourselves to a manicure. A google fest commenced to find a nail bar that we might get a walk in for. In the meantime, the lovely PR folks for Dylan Bradshaw contacted us and offered us a complimentary manicure in their nail bar. 

On arrival, we were blown away by the stylish salon and friendly staff. When we were seated, we were offered as selection of drinks including Prosecco. Which I think is a lovely touch. We were then offered either a file and polish or Shellac nails. The whole day, we had said we would just get a file and polish but both of us are a bit late to the whole Shellac/2 week manicure craze so we decided to try that. 

The night before I had to take off my existing polish and leave my nails bare until the appointment. This felt really alien to me as I always have something on my nails. Here's a pic of them Au Naturel....

Shellac at Dylan Bradshaw costs €30 and takes about 40 minutes. I opted to go with a colour combination of a gorgeous deep purple and sheer pinky peach which gave a final teal effect. Then because my favourite colour is glitter, I choose a feature nail in the most amazing holographic silver and on the nail next to it, a little hint of glitter. I love the effect and next time will get that on every nail. 

I've always liked the idea of not having to touch my nails for weeks at a time so Shellac is definitely a winner for me. I also really liked the salon and plan on returning for a wash and blowdry asap and I think I will definitely be keeping the Shellac for a while, I already have my next colour picked out. 

There are lots of other nail and hair treatments available in the salon, be sure to visit their website for all that's on offer

Have you ever tried Shellac?
