CND Shellac is a cross between nail polish and gel. It's to be applied like regular nail polish but is cured using a UV lamp. Polish application lasts at least 2 weeks.
Shellac Application Instructions
- Remove shine and rough ridges from nails using pink buffer (optional)
- Clean oil/dirt off nails using polish remover and a lint-free pad (soap and water can also be used).
- Apply one thin coat of Shellac UV Base Coat to one hand and cure for 10 seconds under a UV lamp. Repeat on the second hand.
- Apply one thin coat of Color to one hand and cure for 2 minutes under a UV lamp. Repeat on the second hand.
- Apply a second coat of Shellac color polish to one hand and cure for 2 minutes under a UV lamp. Repeat on the second hand.
- Apply Shellac UV Top Coat to one hand and cure for 2 minutes. Repeat on the second hand.
- Remove sticky/tacky film left on the nail with a lint-free pad soaked in 79% or 99% Isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol can also be used).
Nails will feel wet/sticky when finished, be sure to remove this sticky layer of film using Isopropyl alcohol or rub alcohol to harden nails.
Isopropyl alcohol is not included in the Shellac Kit as it has high alcohol content. This product can be found at your local drug store. Rubbing alcohol can also be used if you have this at home.
Shellac Removal Instructions
Shellac can easily be removed using Shellac Remover Wraps or pure 100% acetone.
- Place each finger in a remover wrap.
- Soak the pad on the wrap with pure acetone.
- Place wrap under the finger and the soaked cotton pad over the nail.
- Secure wrap tightly.
- Leave for 10 minutes and apply pressure to the nail.
- Pull the remover wrap off the nail using a twisting motion.
- Use pure acetone and a lint-free pad to remove any leftover residue.
- Pour pure 99% to 100% acetone into a small bowl.
- Soak your fingers in the acetone for 10 minutes.
- Pull fingers out and wait a couple of minutes (polish should start cracking/peeling).
- Peel and push off polish using an orange stick (wooden cuticle stick).
- To remove the remaining polish, soak a cotton ball or pad in acetone and rub it over the nail.
