Directions

VINYLUX Polish System Application and Removal
VINYLUX weekly polish, featuring time-released durability, actually gets stronger over time for 7+ days of flawless color! The color is self adhering, so there’s no need for base coat. 30 minute application.

Application

Step 1: P.E.P.

1. P - Perform a manicure.
a. Have the client wash their hands with soap and water and towel dry.
b. Massage CoolBlue into the client’s hands to cleanse skin and help prevent transmission of germs.
c. Remove any existing nail color from the natural nail using an acetone-based polish remover (CND Shellac Nourishing Remover or ScrubFresh) and a plastic-backed lint-free pad.
d. If necessary, trim the length from each nail, using nail clippers.
e. Shape the extension edge of each nail with the 240-grit side of a Kanga File or Koala Buffer.
f. Apply a small amount of CuticleAway evenly around the cuticle of each nail.
g. Gently slide a cuticle pusher along the nail plate toward the cuticle area and along the lateral fold to lift and loosen any non-living tissue from the nail plate. Remove any excess cuticle away from the nail and use a curette to remove non-living tissue up to the eponychium and lateral fold.
h. Scrub nails thoroughly with soap and a damp brush, then rinse with warm water to remove the cuticle remover and soap; towel dry.
i. Use a manicure nipper to carefully remove any loosened, non-living tissue, as well as any loose pieces of skin or hangnails. Use a gentle touch during cuticle removal to protect the seals. Never cut living tissue as it can lead to infection.

2. E – Eliminate surface contaminants and P – Purify nail plate layers.
a. Thoroughly cleanse and temporarily dehydrate the nail plate layers with ScrubFresh using a lint-free, plastic-backed pad. Gently pull lateral folds back and scrub thoroughly to be sure all areas of the nail are completely clean.

STEP 2: Vinylux Weekly Polish Application
NOTE: Vinylux features adhesion promoters in the color coat that deliver 7 days of chip–free wear and eliminate the need for base coat. Applying base coat will create a barrier between the color layer and nail plate and will not ensure 7-day wear.

Solid Color:
1. Shake the bottle vigorously to blend.

2. Apply one thin coat to each nail surface and extension edge.
a. Remove the applicator brush from the bottle and wipe it against the bottle’s neck to drain excess product from the brush.

c. Gently push the brush toward the cuticle line and glide down one side of the nail toward the extension edge of the nail.
d. Lift the brush and repeat on the other side of the nail, followed by the same steps to coat the center. Leave a tiny free margin around the sidewalls and cuticle area of the nail to avoid color flowing into the eponychium and sidewalls.
e. Be sure to seal the extension edge to ensure long wear.
f. Detail the surrounding skin with ScrubFresh and a CND ProSeries Gel Flat Oval Brush #6 if color gets on skin.

3. Apply a second thin coat to the surface and extension edge using the same process.

FAQs

Q. What are the key steps to follow in order to maximize week long wear?

A. Use VINYLUX as a System; start with P.E.P. followed by VINYLUX Color and always use VINYLUX Weekly Top Coat.

Q. Can you use a CND base coat for extra adhesion?

A. No, a base coat will negate the performance of VINYLUX because the adhesives are in the color coat.

Q. What makes VINYLUX bond to the nail without a base coat?

A. VINYLUX has adhesion promoters in the color coat making the color self-adhering without a base coat.

Q. Can you use a different CND top coat?

A. No, the VINYLUX Top Coat has our innovative Pro-light technology with photo initiators and becomes more durable with exposure to natural light.

Q. Can you use VINYLUX Top Coat with other enamel brands? Will it work as well?

A. It can be used with other enamel brands, but cannot guarantee week long wear. The system yields the ultimate performance.

Q. Are there problems with the polish staining the nails?

A. No, CND uses a two part mechanism to create adhesion without staining. The first part is the adhesion promoters, which are designed to anchor directly to keratin and form a barrier to prevent the pigments from coming in contact with the nail surface. The second part is the fast drying formula which is designed to further lock in the pigments on a more permanent basis as the color layer forms a film. This stops any transport of the pigment down to the nail.

Q. What is the dry time?

A. 8 1/2 minutes

Q. Can you use CND SolarSpeed Spray with VINYLUX?

A. Yes.

Q. Can you apply VINYLUX over Liquid & Powder?

A. Yes, for Liquid & Powder enhancements, smooth and refine enhancement with a 1200 grit buffer, like the Koala Buffer. Apply 2 layers of VINYLUX Weekly Polish followed by VINYLUX Weekly Top Coat.

Q. Can you apply VINYLUX over Brisa Gels?

A. Yes, create the Brisa Gel enhancement, then refine and shape the enhancement following all enhancement finishing steps. Apply Brisa Gloss and cure. Remove the top film with 99% IPA and gently remove the shine with a Boomerang Buffer. Apply 2 layers of VINYLUX Weekly Polish followed by VINYLUX Weekly Top Coat.

Q. Can you apply VINYLUX over Brisa Lite Removable Gels?

Q. Can you pour one bottle of VINYLUX into another bottle? To condense two bottles? To mix two different colors?

A. VINYLUX does not have effects for layering, however, sheer shades can always be used to layer for design.

Q. How do you remove VINYLUX? (Nail polish remover, pure acetone or CND Shellac Nourishing Remover?)

A. VINYLUX is best removed with CND Shellac Nourishing Remover or Acetone.

Q. Which CND Education Classes teach VINYLUX?

A. Our CND Play Station will feature the VINYLUX Polish System.

Q. Since it’s using some of the same technologies as Shellac, can it be cured with UV (or LED light) for extra strength? Will this affect VINYLUX negatively?

A. Curing VINYLUX under a UV or LED light will not affect it negatively; however, it still dries naturally like regular polish.

Q. Does VINYLUX thicken over time like regular nail polish?

A. Yes, as with any solvent containing product, if the top is removed from the bottle, the solvent will evaporate. Be sure to thoroughly shake VINYLUX before application and always tighten the cap after use to prevent solvent evaporation.

Q. What can be used to thin it? Does it cure in the bottle when exposed to light?

A. Adding polish solvent will thin, but will affect dry time.

A. Weekly Polish: $0.17, Weekly Top Coat: $0.09

Q. Will all new colors and collections from VINYLUX always be matched with Shellac colors?

A. VINYLUX will launch with more colors than Shellac and thus have many of its own colors. However, Shellac and VINYLUX will launch the same seasonal collection colors.

Q. How do I ensure that VINYLUX will not take away from my Shellac customers?

A. VINYLUX is for the client that wants to change their color every week or on demand. The Shellac customer desires a two week commitment and salon-only services.

Q. Can you guarantee week long wear?

A. Nail conditions vary which will affect product performance. Healthy nails without delamination or drying issues perform for one week.

Q. Will VINYLUX be available in a larger size?

A. Not at this time. Only if there is future demand.
