Sandal season has arrived, which, for me, means time for a pedicure! As dancers, we use our feet, and until a couple of years ago, I would pretty much instantly chip a pedicure with regular nail polish (so frustrating!). Then, I started requesting gel/shellac polish for my toes, and the results are long lasting. Most of the gel/shellac pedicures last 4-5 weeks, no problem (product marketing generally guarantees 14 days). The cost is a touch more upfront, but the finished products lasts so much longer- it is worth it!
