I think to start, that should be enough, until you start to see a profit. Although saying that, you can NEVER have too many shellac colours

take a look at the sweet squared shellac kits, they are great value if you are starting up from scratch and need all the pep products + lamp etc.
Some of them come with pre-selected colours and I think some let you choose your own.

If you join the Shellac Lovers group there is a great thread that helps you out choosing colours, I found it really helpful. It doesn't have the latest colour collection so I would add in maybe one of those so you have another dark - midnight swim is my favourite!

Lol, you are likely to be inundated with colour recommendations now! And everyone has different preferences. ;)
If you want to find out the best-selling colours then I'm sure the fabulous people at Sweet Squared will fill you in - you can contact them on 08452106060. & Top Tip: they also do amazing package deals containing the CND UV Lamp, preparation products, base and top coat, popular colours etc - BIG saving to be had setting up this way. :)
It would also be worth getting in touch with your local EA Jeni Smith at Creative Academy Cambridgeshire. She has ALL the colours (if you want to see them in the flesh) and also offers a 3-hour, CND-approved and insurance-recognised Shellac course for qualified manicurists - and the great news is it costs less to do the course than I charge for 2 Shellac manicures. WELL worth doing.

Finally, ENJOY!! CND Shellac is fabulous. :)
