CND Shellac Black Pool & Negligee

It's been awhile since I experimented with CND Shellac layering. I wanted to paint my nails blue to support the Detroit Tigers this week in the playoffs. I did my research and found that a common CND Shellac layer is Black Pool with Negligee over top. 

It's definitely a blue! In some lights you can see the shimmer from Negligee. I love the way this turned out. CND Shellac colors never disappoint me! Check out my other CND Shellac swatches.

Go Detroit Tigers!



Shellac Layering - Barbie Pink


I've never been so happy with Shellac layering before. I got the idea from I Heart Cosmetics blog to layer Gotcha & Strawberry Smoothie. What did I get? Barbie pink!

Here's what I did:
Shellac base coat - cure for 10 seconds
1 coat of Gotcha - cure for 2 minutes
1 coat of Strawberry Smoothie - cure for 2 minutes
Shellac top coat - cure for 2 minutes

This looks a lot like Zoya's Barbie shade. It may be very Spring/Summer, but will sport it for 2 weeks in the Fall nonetheless.




CND Shellac Layering - Nude!


-->
With Shellac being such a hit, CND came up with a layering chart to help create new Shellac colors based on ones that are already out. There was a need for more color options, fans were getting antsy, and the CND came to the creative rescue.


When I first tried layering with my BFF and manicurist extraordinaire, Tina, it looked horrible. I think it had something to do with our Fedora bottle being a little old. I tested Iced Cappuccino and Romantique last night and it came out okay. It created a nude color, which Shellac doesn’t really come in yet so it was fun to create a new, unique color. Plus, I’m traveling to Boston today for a work conference so I needed something neutral to last all week…perfect!

Tina just placed an order for Asphalt and Moonlight and Roses, both new Shellac colors. I'll be providing swatches soon!
