Shellacâ„¢ -- The Latest In Nail Glamour

CND (Creative Nail Design), a leader in professional nail, hand and foot beauty, introduces the first hybrid nail color, after nearly five years of development. Shellacâ„¢ Hybrid Nail Color, says CND, is chip and smudge resistant and cuts drying time. The company says the product applies like polish, wears for 14 days of high-gloss shine, and is removed in minutes.



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 "three-Free" - no formaldehyde, toluene or DBP.

Shellac launches in a range of 12 shades, from French pinks and whites, to red and rich darks. The formula is thin and flexible like polish, so it looks natural, and provides nail protection with a resilient mirror finish that resists dullness and chipping.

Removal, CND says, is easy. No soaking, drilling or filing is necessary. Nails are wrapped in individual Shellac Remover Wraps -integrated cotton pads that limit finger and skin exposure to acetone by keeping it pinpointed on just the nail.

CND says, "Ten minutes of time in exchange for two weeks of perfect color is all it takes."

Shellac is a professional salon service launching globally in May 2010. Information, www.cnd.com.
