Loving the campaign’s tag line: “Unravel the mystery of innate desires and express glamour with CND’s Shellac Forbidden Collection!”
Looking at the new CND Shellac’s collection, I can totally relate! You may remember a previous post on CND Vinylux new collection for Fall/Winter? See here if you haven’t. Well, I am SO very pleased to say, the same sultry, deep & sexy colours are now available in Shellac form!! YAY!
I recently attended the CND Shellac Forbidden Collection launch at the beautiful JW Marriott Marquis and was treated to my very first CND Shellac manicure!
First of, I had to chose a colour… gosh that was hard! With 6 different ones to chose from, all featured on the runways during New York and London Fashion Weeks, I took me a while to pick not 1 but 3 colours – Dark Dhalia, Tinted Love andNight Glimmer (the first one as the main colour on 4 out 5 fingers, the second for the ring finger on each hands and Night Glimmer as a French-manicure style tip).
In terms of manicures, I probably tried out everything and, up until a few months ago, I was a huge Gelish advocate! A manicure that lasts for 3 weeks? Yes please! However, it kind of took its toll on my nails, rendering them very brittle and fragile.
Chatting to the lovely CDN Vice Presitent, Denise Dente, I was assured the CNC Shellac was different! It does not damage your nails, is easy to remove and lasts as long as a Gelish manicure does.
The whole process only took 35 mins which is amazing! The first coat takes about 10 seconds to dry and then the next 2 coats take 2 minutes each and you’re done!
2 weeks later, my Shellac manicure is still going strong with very minor chipping and the colour is still very shiny. How amazing!!
The CND Shellac manicures & pedicures are available across all leading spas and salons in the UAE including my favorite De La Mer Day Spa for AED120 or AED230 for a mani-pedi combo)!
