What it is

CND Shellac™ is The Original Power Polish and the future of nail services. A true innovation in chip-free, extended-wear color, CND Shellac is actually a hybrid- half nail polish and half gel. This means you get the best of both worlds- a product that is thin and strong so it can be applied similarly to nail polish.

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

Nails are strengthened and enhanced with 14 days of durable color. The CND Shellac™ system includes an ergonomic UV lamp that is calibrated to perfectly cure the Shellac system for ultimate results. Only use the CND UV Lamp with Shellac. When clients come in for a re-Shellac, Shellac Remover Wraps make the process quick and easy. The innovative, custom-designed wraps limit exposure to acetone by keeping it pinpointed on just the nail.

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

CND Shellac™ has revolutionized the industry, and beauty professionals and their clients swear by it. CND Shellac is the original and the only Power Polish. Don’t accept “gel polish” substitutes that claim to be the same. Better science makes better products. The patent-pending formulation of solvents, monomers and polymers is why CND Shellac goes on like polish, wears like gel and removes in minutes.

No filing. No drills. Shellac is UV cured, so there's ZERO drying time. It's thin and flexible like polish, so it not only looks natural, but it provides strong natural nail protection. The results? Nearly four dozen glorious, high-gloss colors with a shine that's truly addictive! Leave the salon with a perfectly glossy, smudge and dent-free manicure.
