I knew there had to be a way to do this at home! CHEAP version of shellac- No more chipped nails: (1) Apply 1 thin coat of 5 Minute Gel Polish. (2) Apply 1 coat of Essie's 3 Way Glaze base coat. (3) Apply 2 coats of polish. (4) Finish with a coat of 3 Way Glaze. Awesome Idea
Get a bowl of water, pour little bits of all the different shades you want, it should float on the top, swirl with a toothpick or something like it and when it looks like what you want on top of the water, then dip your nails through the water...probably the coolest thing ever!!
