Anyway, I decided to try CND's Shellac (I was debating between those and Minx) and went for a the colour they usually use for french manicures. I'm not sure what's wrong with me.
But I really liked the way it turned out! I'm a little afraid of the removal process. I hate getting my nails filed down.

Yeah, I'm probably going to paint over these the second I'm finished typing. That should be an oddly smooth experience!
