CND Shellac is a cross between nail polish and gel. It is to be applied like regular nail polish but must be cured using a UV lamp.
Shellac lasts much longer than your regular manicure; up to 14 days without chipping or peeling. Dry time is instant, making the application process fast and ensuring your polish doesn’t smudge.
See basic application instructions below or view detailed instructions here.
Shellac Application Instructions
- Apply Shellac UV Base Coat and cure each hand for 10 seconds under UV lamp.
- Apply one thin coat of Shellac color polish and cure for 2 minutes.
- Apply a second coat of color polish and cure for 2 minutes.
- Apply Shellac UV Top Coat and cure for 2 minutes.
- Remove the film left on top of the nail with a lint free pad soaked in 99% Isopropyl Alcohol (available at most drugstores).
Love the colour!!!!!! Just what I was expecting when I ordered it.
What an incredibly fun and versatile colour! Excellent delivery time too.... Love this site!
I really like the CND shellacs but this colour is most often on my nails! It covers well and is really attractive.
Hotski to Tchotchke is amazing. It has a shimmer and goes on like a dream with two coats. I've heard some say it is a beautiful bright colour for spring and summer but I cannot see me putting it away during the colder months. I love, love, love this colour!
