There is only ONE TRUE Shellac and that is CND. Bluesky is a knockoff brand.

That is kind of like asking the difference between a Louis Vuitton you see at LOUIS VUITTON, and a Louis Vuitton you see for sale on a street corner.

The latter is a complete knock off, and actually breaking the law.

Get ready, Stacey Lee, you're going to see a lot of knock off "Shellac" products on the market. I had a client this weekend that was duped into buying what she thought was real Shellac. Problem was, her Shellac was spelled with a "K" at the end.

Would you please pm Mr Geek (Sam) and let him know where you saw this?
It really helps to get the fakes of the street when the suppliers of the real thing know as much info as possible

Thumbs down blue sky shellac - 01-10-11, 06:46 PM

i bought one colour, the base coat and top coat of this not realising it was different from the proper CND, i tried it on myself and 3 other memebers of my family before trying it on my customer. we all have different uses, one has a horse, her's peeled of the 1st day, one is a "normal housewife" 2 peeled of the 2nd night and the rest lasted a week, mine, chipped, i am a trained nail tech and data processor, but worse of all, my mum had such a bad reacation to it that the skin on her fingers literally ripped and bleed within 2 days of application, so badly that i had to VERY CAREFULLY file them off as they are so swollen and sore i dearnt' but acetone anywhere near them. when i wanted to contact the company to tell them, the only address on the bottle is china! this obviously wont happen to everyone, it didnt happen to the rest of us, but it definately doesn't even last a week so i have ordered the proper CND which i will test on myself before my family and clients

FYI Bluesky is currently selling on EBay. It's a fake rip off & shouldbe reported.

It's so sad that you had to learn the hard way... This is why we should ALWAYS buy from authorised distributors and give the likes of Fleabay a WIDE berth for our professional products. :hugs:

I have some of this on my desk - it smells unbelievably gross and nothing like CND Shellac. Here's the rule of thumb.... are we ready???


IF IT DOESN'T SAY CND ON THE BOTTLE IT'S NOT SHELLAC!!!



PS - you can GUARANTEE real CND Shellac if you are buying from your contracted authorized UK distributor - or any CND distributor in your given country!! Sweet Squared LLP are the authorized CND distributor partner in the UK. HTH's
