    I use both of these. Shellac is a power polish, like a hybrid, it goes on like polish but wears like gel. It's cured under CND's UV lamp. I love it as there is no buffing of the natural nail and is so easily removed. It can last up to 2 weeks but some of my clients get 3 to 4 weeks. You can add glitter, foil, additives to it and also layer lots of the colours to come up with new ones.

    Vinylux is a new type of nail polish which was launched last year by CND. It can last up to 7 days (its not a gel polish so no UV lamp required) You don't need a base coat (it already has base coat properties in the colours). The top coat has something called pro light technology, which means that it hardens in normal light. So kinda like the longer it's on the longer it can last. It also dries in 8.5 mins so no more sitting round for 20 mins, then walking out and smudging your polish. I had it on my toes for over 5 weeks with no chips.

    Kinda went off on one there but I love CND lol

    I can pm you their number so you could check with them?

    There are so many different polishes/gels out there sometimes it's good to try a few to see how you get on with them.

    Lots of people say Gelish is really good too and Nail Harmony have an educator in Newcastle so not too far from you x

    Oh please Hun I tried Emailing but got an automated response.
    Yes gelish is closer to home might be worth a shot if I manage to pass this course haha
    I really shouldn't but I've been looking at the coloured acrylic on YouTube and in dying to have a play, also having a look at the nail art I read it's just normal acrylic paint? I need to but a nail art wheel an have a play

    Don't worry about it Hun, if you have it to hand yes please.
    I've heard good things about there polishes but think I might try nail harmony as gelish has a lovely range of colours

    I saw a video regarding nail art design in Whatsapp. In that she drops multi type of color of nail polish one by one into one cup of solution within some time it spread over the cup in circle shape. And then she take one small stick and make slit cross on it then she pip her finger inside and make that design to attach on his finger.
