Just before Xmas I went to Mink Donnybrook with my mum. We both got Artistic Colour Gloss manis which is another version of 'Shellac'.
I have been to Mink a few times before and it's always nice to visit such a classy salon.
Since it was the Xmas season, I wanted something glitzy. I had a mani in mind - a French manicure with a visit. I picked out a pink and gold duo and we got to it.

I think the manicurist was potentially slightly less at ease than some at doing nail art. She seemed a little unsure about doing a french manicure in glitter. However, she definitely rose to the occasion overall.
Since I was going on holiday, I was delighted to have this on my hands so I didn't need to worry about chips. It wore extremely well, with no chips or anything for the first two weeks.

Artistic Colour Gloss in Mink is definitely more expensive than getting gel nails in other places at €50 compared with €25 - 35 in a normal salon. The surroundings are definitely about the nicest you will find however and you will get the manicurists full attention. Mink also have OPI and Essie products for normal manicures. ACG's colour range is excellent and the application is long lasting, so if you are looking for a treat, I would recommend it.
