CND Shellac Cleary Pink or Clearly Clear?

I Shellac'd my nails last night since I was leaving for Chicago today for work, and didn't want to worry about a chipped nail while traveling. I wanted to test a new color for you all, so I decided on Clearly Pink. I was a little disappointed. They should have named this color Clearly Clear. It is as clear as a top coat. I read on the CND site that it was made for those who can't wear color to work (ie interpreters, nurses). So I understand why they launched it with their second line, but be warned, its really clear.

I put one coat of Cleary Pink, and one coat of Romantique, to add color (along with base and to coat). Want to see more Shellac swatches? Check out my other Shellac posts!

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!

Check out the Shellac layering PDFs.


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