Introducing Shellac 2.0
CND Debuts 12 New Shellac Shades
These NEW colours were officially launched to UK on Tuesday March 1st 2011 and are all in stock, as are the latest ones shown above.
With colours ranging from beige to black, this exciting addition expands the Shellac line to 24 chic shades plus countless layering options. Shellac addicts will now have more choices for the convenience of a 14-day manicure. "This new range features perennial classics and fashionable favorites to give salon-goers a wide variety," says Jan Arnold, CND Co-founder and Style Director.
Shellac's May 2010 launch spurred a major shift in the global nail industry. Unprecedented waitlists at salons around the world for this innovation have been the beauty equivalent of the much-buzzed-about iPad. If it doesn't say "CND" on the bottle, it's not Shellac. Shellac is hypo-allergenic and 3-Free (no formaldehyde, toluene or DBP), leaving a brilliantly shiny finish with maintenance-free wear and safely removes in 10-minutes. Shellac's status has instantly grown from 'cult following' to 'modern must-have.' Within one month of its introduction, Shellac sold out four times over.

Offical Press Release by CND:
"CND (Creative Nail Design), the leader in professional nail, hand and foot beauty, is proud to introduce the first hybrid nail color after nearly five years of development in its state-of-the-art laboratory. Now you can say goodbye to chips, smudges, and dry time and say hello to Shellac™ Hybrid Nail Color! This revolutionary product applies like polish, wears flawlessly for 14 days of high-gloss shine, and is removed in minutes.
Shellac paints on like polish — base coat, color, top coat — and is cured in a UV light so there is zero dry time. The colors are hypoallergenic, and “3-Free” — no formaldehyde, toluene or DBP. Shellac will launch in a range of 12 varieties of shades, from pretty French pinks and whites, to siren red and rich darks. The formula is thin and flexible like polish, so it not only looks natural, it provides strong natural nail protection with a resilient mirror finish that resists dullness and chipping, even during the most rigorous activities.
As amazing as Shellac is on, removal is just as satisfying! No soaking, drilling or filing is necessary. Nails are wrapped in individual Shellac Remover Wraps — integrated cotton pads that limit finger and skin exposure to acetone by keeping it pinpointed on just the nail. Ten minutes of time in exchange for two weeks of perfect color is all it takes. Say good-bye to manicure frustration and hello to pure manicure satisfaction".
Shellac is a professional salon service launching globally in May 2010".
Available at Holistic Heaven from 8 June 2010.
1. What is Shellac?
Shellac is a "hybrid" of nail polish and gel. No other products in the market can stand up to the claim: "On like polish, wears like gel, off in minutes".
2. What can I expect to pay for a Shellac service in a salon?
The service price for Shellac will vary depending on the price structure and profile of the salon. Salons in most markets will position Shellac as an up-grade to existing services, charging at least 50% more.
3. Is the Shellac formula "3-Free"?
Yes, Shellac does not include Formaldehyde, Toluene or DBP (Dibutyl Phthalate).
4. Is Shellac hypo-allergenic?
Yes, a low level of photo-initiators are utilised in Shellac. Photo-initiators can lead to sensitivity with some clients.
5. Is there any odour to Shellac?
A slight odour may be noticeable upon application but not as strong as nail polish. After curing in the lamp, residual odour does not remain.
6. Does Shellac removal damage the natural nail?
No. Shellac was developed and tested for years to perfect every aspect of the Shellac process, including removal.
7. Does Shellac last longer than 14 days?
Yes, however, you will notice a "line of demarcation" as your natural nail grows away from the cuticle. It is recommended that you adhere to a 14 day re-application appointment, as the adhesion will increase if worn past this point, making the removal process a little more lengthy.
8. Will soaps or other personal grooming products affect the wearability of Shellac?
No. Shellac was developed and tested to withstand the rigours of daily wear.
9. Are there any negative side effects to the frequency of removal with Shellac?
No, not as long as the system is being used correctly.
10. Can Shellac be used over my enhacements (Liquid & Powder and Gel)?
Your Nail Professional can incorporate a Shellac service with both Liquid & Powder and Gel enhancement services.
11. Can I remove my own Shellac?
No. To ensure the health of the natural nail, Shellac is a professional only service and only trained Nail Professionals should apply and remove Shellac.
