Thank you all for responding to my post. I had no idea this would create such a stir. I really wasn't expecting this many responses.
Just a few words about my screenname, "Hott"; I chose it because I've been making good grades in my classes recently...Hott as in intellectually Hott not in the physical sense.
I guess if policy says you can't wear the "sheilac" or "shellac" nails, then don't wear them. I haven't been informed not to wear them. My facility says it's okay. Artificial nails and long nails are definitely not okay.
