…favorite things friday – shellac


Did you think I meant shellac from the hardware store?

I’m not talking about the shellac for our painted pieces! I’m talking about shellac for our FINGERNAILS!

So, imagine you have a party or an event that you need to go to and must get your nails done a few days in advance. Well, what happens if you have to finish up a few projects in the meantime? I don’t know about you, but I like to make a mess when I paint and my nails never survive the play.

A few months ago I tried this shellac gel. It dries instantly, lasts for 2 weeks and does not peal (it actually just grows out with your nail). Sounds a bit like Chalk Paint! Ha!


This Cake Pop is my favorite color. Partly because my kids always beg for cake pops at a Starbucks run and partly because it’s a happy color for warm weather.

I realize that as creative people we are not always interested in getting our nails done. But, if you must this is a solution to our painter’s nails!
