I am so excited about CND’s Shellac! As far as I can tell, it’s the best invention the Nail Industry has seen for many years, and is sure to change its future!

So what is Shellac? Shellac is a Hybrid Nail Colour; a polish that cures with UV light that gives all the benefits of a gel. Shall I tell you the best bit? It dries instantly and lasts 14 days!! Using UV3 technology, Shellac is scratch proof, smudge proof and gives you 14 days of shine. I am currently Shellac-ed in French and I love it. After 14 days my nails are all intact, they are still shiny, and I have no chips. I can’t wait to try out a colour next time.

After 5 years of research a new product has been born; CND have managed to take the best bits of a polish (no buffing the natural nail, nice thin coats) and the best bits of a gel (long lasting, chip proof, and smudge proof) to create Shellac. Initially launching in 12 colours, I have heard this will grow to over 60 within a year. Shellac is also hypoallergenic, and contains no formaldehyde, toluene or DBP.

It’s like a magic polish – first a base coat is applied, it’s cured under UV light, then 2 coats of a colour (or French) which is again cured under UV light, and then finally a top coat, which, you guessed it, is cured under a UV light. A quick wipe with solution and hey presto – you have lovely, shiny, dry nails!

Shellac will be available at Beauty of Bedford as from 16th June. Call 01234 307373 to book your appointment!
