Back to Shellac!

It's no secret that I adore Shellac

I love everything about this innovative nail polish system - from it's quick 30 minute, out-the-door application process to it's 14-day chip free results.

What I don't find particularly exciting are the CND line-up of colors.  Don't get me wrong, there are some colors I adore, but a girl gets bored and wants more.

And to be fair CND has been slowly adding new colors.  But, I was dying to try out some trendy non-shellac colors and therefore, I conducted a little experiment.

Having purchased my own CND Shellac system from Amazon, I tested out what would happen if I used a non-shellac based color with the CND Shellac Base, Top Coat and UV Light Nail Dryer.

While I was able to get my nails to cure, the color started chipping within a day (sigh).

So for all of you Shellac lovers out there wondering if normal polish can be used, stop wondering - you won't get the same long lasting results.

On the bright side, I see that CND has added some new colors recently!

  • Hotski to Tchotchke (teal)
  • Asphalt (gray)
  • Zillonaire (glitter white)
  • Purple Purple (do I need to spell this one out?)
  • Rock Royalty (bluish purple)

Shellac it!
