Perfect Match Manicure At Carter Beauty

I loved my Shellac Nails from Dylan Bradshaw, they were a great beginning to my adventure in the world of two week manicures. The actually lasted me almost 3 weeks but last week I decided to get them removed as there had been a decent bit of nail growth since I had them done.
I decided to try Perfect Match manicure and once I settled on this I knew there was only one place to go - Carter Beauty in Blackrock owned by Marissa Carter from Cocoa Brown.
I'm ashamed to say this is my first visit to Marissa's salon, I really have no excuse as it isn't that far from me.
On arrival, I was shown the selection of polishes. Hubby had said to me go for something autumnal but ever the rebel I clung onto summer for dear life by choosing a gorgeous blue called Old New Borrowed Blue and glitter topcoat called Princess Tears (love that name)
Before painting could commence, I had to get the shellac removed, this involved buffing down my nail then  the tinfoil method using 100% acetone as a remover. After about 5 minutes, the polish was then removed.
Here are before and after removal pics
** See the nail growth I'm talking about? **
And here are the finished Perfect Match Manicure
I cannot put into words how much I love them, they are so colourful and sparkly
A Perfect Match Manicure in Carter Beauty costs €30, I was very lucky and only had to pay €20 but I would not have hesitated paying the full amount to my lovely nail technician.
Have you ever visited Carter Beauty?
