Tried and Tested

January 13, 2011

Obsession of the month?

CND Shellac Nail Polish!

What’s their tag line, again?

‘Goes on like a polish, wears like a gel’.

Something like that.

Whatever it is, I’m in love.

This no chip, no streak, high shine, mirror finish, quick dry, 14 day lasting miracle goo is saving me hours per week on my nails. Whilst I do find a nice Friday night mani/pedi in front of the TV fairly therapeutic, it’s fantastic having so much free time on my hands to… watch television… and… eat food…

Moving on, we all know I am the nail polish queen (do I need to tell you about my  massive collection again?), but this stuff takes the chocolate sprinkled cake on every ‘long wearing, long-lasting, high shine, no chip’ colour I’ve ever tried before.

The impossibly easy steps of:

-apply base coat

-cure under UV lamp for 10 seconds

-apply colour coat

-cure under UV lamp for 2 minutes

-apply second colour coat  -cure under UV lamp for 2 minutes

-apply top coat

-cure under UV lamp for 2 minutes

make this revolutionary home manicure system simple enough for even my mother to perfect on her own (although I suspect she’ll still be asking me to do it for her).

Sold out in every beauty supply shop, Shellac is taking the world by storm. Anyone who’s anyone (in the beauty industry anyway) is trying to get their hands on a bit of Shellac. I had to buy my goods on Ebay and have them shipped from the US and Asia.

While your local salon may offer reasonable rates on a Shellac manicure (around $50), I say for those feeling confident about their home nail painting skills and looking to save a buck, invest in your own gel system and  become the most popular kid on your street. Not only will you have immaculate looking nails, 24/7, you’ll have your own little nail salon set up in your living room. Why not charge people to come over and use it? Ok, I’m getting off track.

Anybody who has a job where they use their hands, or are just prone to hitting/breaking/chipping their nails, then Shellac is the way of the future. You don’t have to have Gels or Acrylics anymore to have flawless, salon-finish colour and shine.

Shellac Attack! … Too far?
