There's something about having your nails perfectly manicured that makes you feel like you have your life together - in fact, my manicurist is one of the most trusted people in my life. Sounds dramatic, but everyone knows the feeling of choosing the wrong colour in a haste and being stuck with it for weeks. Nails are a serious business.
We know getting shellac to last 4 weeks is quite a feat, so I asked esteemed nail technician, Clara Hwang for her tips on getting the most out of your professional manicure (as well as the sh*t we do that manicurists find annoying).
Clara has 15 years experience as a licensed nail technician, and has done the nails of celebrities like Katy Perry, Serena Willliams and Lily Allen, so she's kind of a big deal.
