So my experimanicure had an up side and a down side. The manicure looked absolutely flawless for about a week and a half. At that point, it started to look a little grown out at the nail bed, (I had some serious half-moons going on). I also noticed that the polish started to get a little soft around the edges, where previously it had been rock solid. It seemed to be almost melting, but not in a gross way. I ended up picking at it slightly, and the varnish just peeled off in one piece. This is both good and bad. It didn't last as long as I expected, but on the other hand, I didn't have to return to the salon to have it removed which I was expecting to have to do. It was also starting to look weird because it was grown out, and I didn't really want it on there anymore anyway. I would make sure next time that I asked the technician to get as close to the nail bed as she could with the polish to make it last that much longer, and I would choose a lighter color so that the half moons were less noticeable.
SO, that being said. I would do it again. It looked super for a week and half, which is like 4 times longer than my manicures usually last. All in all, I think that this kind of manicure will totally replace the regular kind for me. It's just a better deal!
