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).
This is not a "bad" colour - you can't really go wrong with a pale pink. I knocked off a star because you don't have the option to apply just 1 coat, the first coat will apply quite unevenly so you definitely need to go over it with 2 or 3 coats in total, and it becomes completely opaque. If you want to go for a semi-sheer look this is not for you. 123
Romantique is a beautiful colour, very neutral with a hint of soft pink. It covers well with 2-3 coats, and is easily applied.
I would highly recommend this colour to anyone as it looks great on many different skin tones. It is a wonderful option for brides, bridal parties, or anyone looking for a soft and feminine look. A must have for any polish colour collection, Romatique will not disappoint!
I hope this is not like lipstick colours; the ones we love disappear. It's natural but with a bit of opagueness to be elegant. It works...don't fix it. 123
This is my go to shade. It's perfect for the every day menicure. It's a bit sheer but does the job in three layers (2 if you're not picky). I love the slight grey undertone to give it a soft pink colour. 123
