I've been following the lovely Rebekah on Instagram for the last couple of weeks and have been admiring her work; she runs her own business from home and does two week manicures and gel nails. I was delighted to take her up on her offer to try them for myself, being a lover of all things nail polish! Here's how I got on:
I went for the two week manicure (like shellac, so it should stay chip free for up to two weeks before it grows out and needs to be removed) in very Autumnal colours; a brown/burgundy with a gold glitter accent nail and mine look great apart from a couple of very small bubbles on two of the nails (in fairness, it is part of the service that if you're not 100% satisfied you can return to have it sorted but it's not enough of a worry for me to do that, I'm only mentioning it to provide a thorough review).
And I've already received lots of compliments, yay! I'm also slightly obsessed with that accent nail..I'm thinking a full set of the gold glitter would look amazing!
Rebekah is qualified in shellac nails and although she's also a full time student she has a certain amount of appointment slots every week; ideal for debs, weddings, nights out, holidays or just for treating yourself. I love getting shellac done when I know I have a few events coming up but I'm not a huge fan of the cost. In the past I've gone to Mink in Ballsbridge (because it's literally down the road from me) but I haven't gotten shellac done from them since last year as I'm saving and a two week mani with them will set you back around €55 with an additional €10 for removal. That's…crazy expensive.
Amazingly, Rebekah charges only €15 & €5 removal for the two week mani (using either two colours or colour and crystals), €10 & €5 removal for two week mani (using just one colour), €25 for gel nails in one colour and €30 for gel nails with colour & crystals etc.
You can also avail of her loyalty scheme whereby the 6th appointment is free, which is pretty cool.
That right there is amazing value and if you're living in the south of Dublin and are trying to save money like me but still want to treat yourself then this is a great option!

Are you a fan of shellac or are you more of a change-my-nail-polish-daily sort?
