CND Shellac Polish – Fall 2011 Swatches & Packaging Info

Hi Everyone, I know you’ve been patiently waiting for Shellac swatches and I want to say Thank You.  I have been swamped at work but started them thanks to a little help from friends (Hi Ingrid!).  Look for back on this post in the next few days.  In the meantime, here is a bit of a teaser:

Studio White: This soft white makes for the most natural French ever!  It is also very easy to work with compared to Cream Puff.  I just got it in and have done 5 french so far.  Very pretty.

Zillionaire (over pinky nail): glitter with red, blue and gold flecks.

Asphalt: Just like the CND Asphalt polish.  I recommend stocking up on retail if you are a nail tech, because your clients can buy a bottle for toes or for extending wear.  This is a hothothot color for fall/winter!

Hotski to Tschoske*: Oy, I think I spelled that wrong.  But it is a very bright teal. *hotski to tchotchke

Moonlight & Roses: This is like Beau on steroids.  Same white frost bits but with red/pink sheen.  It really makes a glow to the nails and looks fab with studio white (see above too).

Purple Purple: Photographed blue here, but a gorgeous dark purple.  I liked it much more than I thought I would.

Check back for swatches.

First Asphalt! 8/24

There are changes to the packaging front & one side this fall 2011.
I always tell my clients that the term Shellac is now used for a 2 week manicure in the way Kleenex is to tissues or Xerox is to copying. It’s treated as a catchall! If it isn’t CND, it isn’t the patent pending Shellac. Looky what’s on the cover of the boxes now!

The miniscule color identifier is on the bottom of the front. The sales clerk and I didn’t realize it was there.

The other change is to the side of the box. They’ve removed the fantastic large print stating the color. It was so easy to confirm you had picked up the right color, and it was probably easier to stock. Life goes on.
