Earlier this month at Cosmoprof I had the chance to see the new CND Shellac shades hitting salons this fall, you can see my Shellac mani here. I’m happy to see CND release a glitter and I’m hoping we’ll see more of this in the future, it would be great to see something like their Effects for Shellac. Hopefully this is the beginning of that.
Here are the shades being added to the lineup from left to right:
- Zillionaire – sheer multicolored glitter.
- Moonlight Roses – opalescent pink.
- Studio White – semi-sheer soft white (french manicure option).
- Asphalt – concrete gray.
- Hotski to Tchotchke – vibrant teal.
- Purple Purple – iridescent azure violet.
Don’t let the image here sway you on some of these, the shades are really gorgeous in person. The bottles are a little deceiving. Purple Purple is definitely a purple and doesn’t look as blue as the bottle looks and Hotski to Tchotchke is not as neon as it looks. You can see more of Purple Purple and Hotsky to a Chotchke at Plastic Diaries and you can see more of Purple Purple, Hotski to Tchotchke, Zillionaire and Asphalt at Temptalia. These shades will be hitting salons next month.
I didn’t know this before but you can apply color on top of Shellac without damaging it when you remove the color. I tried this with my recent manicure and I was surprised at how easily the nail polish came off, as if the Shellac base made it easier. This made me think about using Studio White to protect my nails while some of the damaged parts continue to grow out. This way I could start swatching!
Any of these new shades inspiring you to get Shellac’d? Let me know in the comments.
