CND Shellac After 5 Weeks

I got a manicure with CND's Shellac 14-day wear gel nail polish on
March 14 at America's Beauty Show. This is how my nails looked 5 weeks
later on April 18. I did get a chip on my left index finger (that I
filed away) after about 10 days but otherwise very long-lasting. I was
hard on my nails - went to several conferences/tradeshows, did the
dishes without gloves, opened plastic packages, and scraped off gunk
from kitchen counters during this time.
Disclosure: I received a free manicure from CND.
