I picked the wrong color, yet just had my nails done a few days ago. (I usually go every two weeks or so with the gel polish..) So, to cover my Pepto pink nails, can I just paint over them with an Essie polish or will that ruin the finish? On all future manicures, I need to remember to go neutral like I usually do!! I just got caught up in the beautiful springy day I guess, and picked a pink that is very unlike me... Thanks!

I have shellac on my nails and I know you can paint over them with regular polish, You can even change the polish as long as you use non acetone remover.
