Hi

What does everyone think of the new shellac colour cityscape. I got it last week and must say when i tried the colour out on my own nails i wasnt impressed, its not as nice as i taught at all. Anyone know any nice layering to make this colour look nicer for clients?:D

I put mother of pearl over the top and it's lovely, also with moonlight and roses over, very pretty.

Don't you just LOVE how versatile Shellac is :D.

I had a client who had Tropix on her toes for holiday, but then realised that it slightly clashed with her peachy coloured sandals. So we put a layer of Hot Chilis on top and all was well again :hug:

It is one of my most favourite colours with a thin black free edge (like the ones you did, Ceri!). I also sometimes add a black half moon as well. PURE CLASS

I agree with Jen ... How can anyone not like this colour? Beautiful painting too Jeni as always. X

I don't like it on myself either!! I love the colour in the bottle but it is too cool-toned for my skin and I just can't pull it off. Although I tell others it looks great on them (if it does!!) I can't really wear blues or silvers so it sits waiting for others to choose it :)

It's one thing to not liki a colour on oneself .... But it is silly for anyone to let that opinion influence one not to recommend it to others!!

I would never wear Cocoa on its own, but it's one of the most popular colours in the salon; so many of our older clients love it! I wouldn't omit having that colour on my rack just because I personally wouldn't wear it.

Hey Geeg, i really want to try doing a half moon with these 2 colours.. I just want to know, do you use those reinforcement tapes to get a perfect moon? If so are you appling tape over Cityscape after cure? How does this work? Sorry questions!

Jen, is that Cityscape on it's own you have here, or something layered over it giving the shimmer?

It is layered with silver VIP for a bit of depth.

I just paint them on with a small brush and Blackpool ... so much quicker and less hassle than using any kind of form.
