    CND Shellac help

    I've had the same problem until I started using Young Nails Protein Bond as a primer. It really adds to the longevity and my clients' nails last 3-4 weeks without a problem. :)

    Products to tame hair while braiding etc

    Heya geeks, I'm looking for an alternative product to work with when I do bridal updos. I currently use Revlon Stylemasters Pure Styler 3, which I spray over hair before braiding and such. It helps with the flyaway, but I'd like to change it up since I hate the smell. I'm currently looking...

    Young Nails Protein Bond

    Hello geeks, I have a very hard time getting my hands on Young Nails Protein Bond, since I'm from Slovenia and we don't have a distributor here.

I have the CND Zuca trolley, that si designed to perfectly fit your lamp, and it comes with 2 see-through compartments for your polishes, glitter etc. It has a ton of additional pockets, so you can...

    Late to the game with stamping

    I love Bornpretty plates - I find the bigger plates work particularly well, whereas some of the smaller round ones are a hit and a miss. For stamping polish, I have quite a few from Moyra that are awesome, and the newer version of Bornpretty also work perfectly (the ones in the newer packaging)...

    Shellac needing 3 coats

    Aren't all three colors I mentioned marked as Opaque? :) I tried Creekside with Cream Puff underneath, but I still needed 2 additional coats od Creekside, because the first layer wasn't looking good. I imagine it would be similar to the combos you mentioned? I'll give this a go to see if I can...

    Shellac needing 3 coats

    Thank you for your suggestion! I just booked an appointment at the nearby salon that uses Lilly nails. I'm trying it on one finger to see if I can work with it. How hard is the removal with this? I would only use this is a gel polish, I don't do enhancements. Thanks x

    Shellac needing 3 coats

    Hello ladies! I've been doing nails with CND Shellac for the past 3 years. While I find most colors really do need only 2 coats, there are some I absolutely hate to use, because I always have to do 3 coats. These are the colors: Creekside, Salmon Run and Brick Knit. I tried asking for help...
