CND SHELLAC SYSTEM – Review of The New Fingernail Product by Creative Nail Design!

June 14, 2010

The new CND SHELLAC nail polish package is available in 12 colors.


[tweetmeme source=”handresearch” only_single=false] Shellac Hybrid Nail Color is CND’s new polish that goes on in three coats like polish, dries like a gel, and lasts for 14 days with high shine. It can only be applied by a professional manicurist using a special CND UV lamp, and became available at nail salons since May 1, 2010.

Imagine going to the nail salon and getting your nails done without having to wait for them to dry. Now imagine having your manicure last for 14 days with no chips, bubbles or smudges. And after bringing your color Shellac for two weeks, a 10 minute clock is removed for a new application, and you can change color. Sound too good to be true?

Grace Gold from test the new CND Shellac fingernail product, and these are her conclusions:

“I actually think that CND is playing it safe by claiming this manicure can last two weeks, because I can definitely push at least a week more out of my current nails, if not even more.”

“I also think this is a great option for weddings and other events. No need to get up extra early to fit a harried trip to the salon in on the day of a special occasion– you can instead comfortably Shellac a week before and be confident that your nails will look fresh and unchipped for the big day.”

“The one drawback is that similar to its cousin, the gel, Shellac can only be applied in salons. It requires less skill than sculpting a gel nail, but still uses UV and removal technology that is not yet directly available to consumers.”

    How to order SHELLAC products ?

  3. Kat Skinner Says:

    That was a pretty cool post.
    It would have been beneficial however to have larger images (or extreme close ups of the nails) for better proof; it was difficult to see any regrowth on day 14, let alone any other imperfections that might have occurred over time.

    Thank you for the review!

    Why did my newly, salon applied “Shellac” peel off the day after it was applied? I loved the way my nails looked but the very next day the product lifted on all my nails and I had to peel it off in sheets!! Why did this happen and did anyone else have this experience?

    • Honey Says:

      My shellac manicure also peeled off of 3 nails within 3 days of its application. Four other nails chipped very badly. I have had acrylic nails for 15 years previously, which always lifted. I thought shellac would be a better option, but I am very disappointed.
