CND Shellac nail polish

Shellac in Tutti Frutti - Day 1

Have you heard of Shellac yet? Creative Nail Design (CND) came out with Shellac polishes, which cure under a UV light and are suppose to stay chip/smudge free for up to 2 weeks!

I've been dying to try this out. Lack of planning, had me calling around Saturday morning trying to find a salon near me that had an open appointment. I ended up at Studio 103 which is an adorable salon in Howell, MI. Nicole did my nails and they turned out flawless. Between each coat (base, 2 color coats and a top coat) my nails went under a UV light, just like gel nails, but with polish.

I was out the door dry (in 30 minutes!) and confident that I wasn't going to smudge them. Apparently the polish only comes off with acetone. No backfills, no fill ins, you just remove the polish with acetone when they grow out and you're good to go. No damage done to nails! It wasn't a full manicure, but included filing, cuticle care, buffing and polish, all for $25. This will be more than worth the price if this stays on for 2 weeks.

I mainly wanted them done for my the wedding I had the next day, on the 4th of July. The true test is if they last for 14 days. I'll keep posting pictures along the way. Let's see if it lasts!
