CND™ SHELLAC™ POLISH
When it comes to getting a manicure these days, many opt for the long-lasting power of CND™ SHELLAC™ system. It was first introduced in 2010 and the three-step nail-painting process wears flawlessly with brilliant shine for up to 14 days (or longer) after curing under a UV light with zero drying time.
For starters, CND Shellac shouldn’t be confused with similar products like gel or soak-off polish. Shellac has a unique eight-patent formula and is available at almost every nail salon, while similar products mimic what CND created. Shellac is also the only non-damaging, long-lasting polish that doesn’t require soaking, filing or roughing of the natural nail. In addition, every one of the polish colors in the collection are formulated to be thin and flexible — much like a regular nail polish.
When it comes to removal, CND Shellac should never be filed, peeled or scraped off. The brand makes a nourishing remover that is acetone-based, but is infused with macadamia and vitamin E oils to condition the nail and avoid damaging it or the surrounding skin. CND also makes Foil Remover Wraps, which are presoaked in the remover and target the nail plate directly when wrapped around the fingertips. Once the remover sits on the nails for five minutes (or eight minutes if using the original top coat), the soaked polish should be removed using an orangewood stick to avoid any damage to the nail.
