Hi I did a search but couldn't find anything. Was just wondering if anyone knew a combo to make grey shellac? Not too dark but not as light as a dove grey. Thanks :)

Cityscape is a beautiful dove grey so no need for layering or Cream Puff with Asphalt :)

You don't mix CND Shellac it has to be layered.
So 2 coats of bottom colour cured inbetween then 1 coat of layering colour finishing with the Top Coat as usual.

Have you done a training class as there is lots of great tips and advice on getting the best from the product?

You never mix CND Shellac colours together... If you do you will have curing issues.

If you want to create a different colour you would layer them one over the other. Lighter over darker.

Thanks guys haven't got cityscape yet but will try other suggestions on a tip and see what they look like. If not I might have to just put another order in to sweet squared

Cityscape is the colour you are looking for and an extremely popular choice ... It was the colour I had been waiting forever to get along with Rubble the mushroom beige colour. I wear that one most of the time right now ... Even bought a new car recently in the same colour without realising it! :green: very classy.

Actually I don't agree on that one. You would start with the darker colour and add a layer or two of a lighter colour over it to get a lighter effect. Easier, in my opinion, In this case to just buy the colour you want as it is available .. Lord knows everyone keeps asking for more colours so you might as well get them when they are available ... Especially a colour you will get asked for allot, like this one.

Cityscape is defo worth buying. My clients all like different colours. I have ones that prefer the pinks and reds, and others that usually stick with the dark colours, but most of them have all had Cityscape on and love it.

since op asked for one that wasn't as light as dove grey,even though cityscape is beautiful, it might be a bit light for her. What about Rubble?

You can make it a touch darker by layering it over Asphalt. Do a really, really thin coat of Cityscape over Asphalt or even sponge it over the top that would look lush!
Sorry EMJZ Rubble is a mushroom taupe not a grey in any form.:hug:
