Not only it took two hours, but I had to return there two days later because shellac started to peel. Returned there twice to just fix what is supposed to last at least 5 days, a good one up to 14 days. The only professional who is great at shellac is … Full review

  • Rating: 1.0 out of 5"Apr 13, 2014 · by Jenna D. from YelpThree years later and my hair is ALMOST back to where it was before I made the dreadful mistake of walking into simplybe.
