What it is
However, it is cured in a way that gives it the kind of great flexibility and durability that you would expect from a gel. Typical nail polish may not dry until two to three hours after a nail service, but CND Shellac is cured by UV light within minutes. And it lasts for 14 days! It can easily be removed by enveloping the nail in an acetone wrap for 10 minutes. So relax and get beautiful, resilient nails strong enough to withstand accidental knocks as soon as you leave the salon!
How it works
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 hypo-allergenic and “3-Free” – no formaldehyde, toluene or DBP. The formula is thin and flexible like polish, so it not only looks natural, but it provides strong natural nail protection with a resilient mirror finish that resists dullness and chipping, even during the most rigorous activities.
Why it rocks
