CND Shellac Pink Bikini & Lobster Roll

I recently got a CND Shellac manicure for my last work and personal trips. I just didn't want to worry about nail polish chipping and packing polish. I love Shellac for this reason. It stays! Check out my other CND Shellac posts. I was really excited to try out their new colors, Pink Bikini and Lobster Roll.
I chose Pink Bikini for my vacation manicure. I thought it was bold and summery and it matched my bathing suit. This manicure lasted 2 whole weeks. No chips or sign of wear on the tips, just growth which showed after the first week. Since I'm taking prenatal vitamins the new growth showed a bit sooner than normal.
For my last work trip and for the 4th of July, I chose Lobster Roll. It has a little bit of orange in it, but definitely considered a 'red.' I don't wear red nail polish often, but I like to when I'm wearing beige, blue or black outfits and I know it will act as a pop of color. I'm still rocking this manicure 10 days later. No chips or wear, just new growth.

CND Shellac Cityscape & Negligee

This is CND Shellac in Cityscape with a layer of Negligee. I wanted a light color for work travel that would go with most of my outfits. I tried Silver VIP Status over my pinky (if you can see the sparkles) but decided to opt out of shimmer for a work trip. I'll try the shimmer again when I don't have to meet with clients. I can see the shimmer being cute on toes for the summer. Here are some more CND Shellac swatches. 



CND Shellac in Rubble

This is Rubble from CND Shellac's new color line. I LOVE it. I wore it on my last business trip as a neutral color that would go with everything. It's so hard to describe this color. It's like a grayish brown solid color, but has an opaqueness to it. This is a great new neutral color for the Shellac line! Check out my other CND Shellac swatches.


 


CND Shellac in Cityscape

This was my Thanksgiving Day manicure. I would normally go a bit darker for Fall but because it was a bit warmer, I thought I'd do a lighter color.

This is from CND Shellac's newest line of colors. It's called Cityscape, and it's a light, creamy gray. I love colors like this...they go with practically everything, and I don't have to spend extra time planning my outfits around my manicure (yes, sometimes I do this!). 


Gelish Nail Polish - 7 days later

It's been a full week since I got a Gelish manicure - so far so good! Check out my previous picture and post. No chips, as you can tell from this picture, just new nail growth. It's starting to lift a bit off the sides, but if I don't pick at it, you can't tell.

Props to Gelish - and here's to a new option for a long lasting gel manicures!
