I've seen lots of threads here about the Shellac gel manicure. I do my own - I know a cosmetogolist and she sold me the UV lamp and supplies and so I do my own. It is a gel coating over your real nail, but you do not file down, scuff up or damage your real nail like acrylics do. I just did mine this morning, so here is a pic. I did not add any of the Shellac brand color. I did one coat of the pink gel nail laquer that I bought from Ulta - made by Orly - called Beverly Hills Manicure and the color is called "Beverly Hills Plum". The orly polish was only like $7 from Ulta (compared to A80642 sold here which is $29).
Anyway - for those curious - here are pics of my nails with the shellac and gel color polish. I am not a professional, but I am getting better at doing my own! (I may redo the middle finger with the gel color - it looks a little sloppy).
