Hello to Long Lasting Nail Colour

cnds-shellac-hybrid-nail-color You’ve just had your nails beautified at your favourite nail bar and they are looking stunning. Minutes later you realize that you have smudged a nail. Three days later you end up removing the polish due to multiple chips. It is just so frustrating!

Our friends at Ritual Salon & Spa felt our on-going mani-frustration, so they recently recommended we try a Shellac Manicure (Express Shellac Mani, $35 / Full Shellac Mani, $45). CND‘s Shellac Hybrid Nail Color is applied like a regular nail polish but lasts for 14 days! And you can say bye-bye to chips, smudges and a lengthy dry time.

During your manicure, the Shellac is applied in the same way your everyday polish would be – a base coat, two coats of colour and a top coat. The difference is that between each coat, your nails are dried under a UV light, ensuring perfectly dried, chip-resistant nails.

The only downside is that you need to visit your nail tech to have the Shellac removed. But if you love it as much as we do, it is more than worth it!

Choose from 12 fun and flirty shades. Our pick is Tropix, the perfect summer nail colour.

Available at select spas across North America

    So glad I started reading your blog. I have heard of this brand of nail polish somewhere but couldn’t remember the name. Thanks for info.

    I am so jealous of all of you guys talking this up! I’m a Shellac/Axxium virgin. Well hopefully not for long… think I’m going to be testing it for an article I’m writing. It sounds like everyone is a fan – can’t wait!

    My shellac nails are still perfectly intact and very glossy – I think it’s been 13 days. AMAZING.
