CND Shellac™ For Fingers and Toes

If you are among the millions of women who get SO frustrated when their freshly painted nails get ruined before they have the chance to dry, or are sick and tired of nail polish that starts chipping away just days after applying, then CND Shellac™ is for you.

CND Shellac™ is 21st century technology that uses a UV light and specially developed polish technology to stay on your nails for at least 14 days. The polish does not chip, scratch, smudge and causes no damage to the nail. And the shine is amazing!

Designed for the natural nail client, Shellac offers tremendous depth of colour and mirror shine for that flawless finish. Shellac is perfect for weak, thin, brittle, damaged nails that are prone to snags as it adds a tough resiliant and flexible coating.

 How to keep your Shellac looking FABULOUS!

You will absolutely LOVE your nails while you are wearing Shellac and I expect your nails to last for at least 14 days as long as you give them good care and attention during that time. This means you should protect your nails by wearing gloves when doing jobs like household cleaning and gardening, hobbies that are rough on your hands or using harsh chemical products. …Doing these things without protection can mar your Shellac service and reduce its longevity.

You will notice during the application process i have coated the front of the nail with each layer of Shellac. The reasons for this is to make the manicure look nice and to avoid the colour shrinking at the free edge during the curing process. The ‘so called’ seal is expected to wear off the sharp free edge of the natural nail in a few days with normal wear and tear. It is possible to carefully file this free edge every few days to keep the free edge looking perfect. (The lack of a sealed free edge does not cause chipping or peeling if you have filed correctly, always file at a 45 degree angle and with a 240 grit file or preferably even higher)

CHIPPING OR LIFTING
If something you have done has caused a chip (that cannot be filed away as discussed above) or lifted an edge of your Shellac manicure, please do NOT pick or pull at the area, as this will cause any damage to increase. Please contact me so that I can assess the nail and decide if a repair is necessary. Please note that repairs will be chargeable.

ON HOLIDAY
If you are on holiday please be careful when using sun tan oils or insect repellent solutions as many of these products contain solvent oils which will cause major damage to the Shellac colour coat.

SWIMMING POOLS
Some of the more delicate CND Shellac colours can fade somewhat if one is in chlorinated water followed by excessive sun (remember that chlorine is a bleach and sun intensifies the bleaching action). Dry your hands and nails after swimming and before sunbathing to minimize any colour fading.

CUTICLE OIL
Please use cuticle oil at least twice a day (especially at night before going to bed) to replace lost moisture to your skin and nails. Also beneficial is the use of any hand and body lotion daily. Maintaining this aftercare regularly will substantially prolong the life of your CND Shellac manicure and keep your natural nails and the skin surrounding them healthy, moisturised and flexible. CND Solar oil is highly recommended and can be purchased from me for a handbag size at £1.50 each.

PAINTING OVER
If you wish to temporarily change the colour of your nails whilst wearingCND Shellac you can use nail enamel over the CND Shellac but please be sure to use an Acetone Free Remover if removing nail polish between appointments. (Please note however that the ‘mirror shine’ CND Shellac finish may be slightly compromised by using nail varnish remover even if it is acetone free!)

REMOVAL
Incorrect removal at home may damage the surface of your nails which defeats the whole point of the CND Shellac system. I can remove CND Shellac using a professional remover and to give you a mini-manicure so that your natural nails will look perfectly groomed.
