I just did my nails the other day with my neighbor's shellac nail polish ~ and love it! Now I see gel nail polish advertised in a flyer. Does anyone know what the difference is?? From what I have looked up so far it looks as though the shellac may be better for your nails and a little easier to get off??Answer Question

The convenience of gel nail polish is great but long usage over time is really bad for your nails. Trust me I use to get mine done 1-2 times a month depending on how much they chipped and I got tired of my nails becoming weak and brittle. I even was taking a vitamin especially for hair, skin and nails to help and it didn't. Finally, I just had to stop getting the gel manicures and let my nails grow out and recover.
Having them done for a special occasion is fine but to do indefinitely I would strongly recommend not to.
