HI all!

Ok so I am deciding on the next four colours to get
I already have 8
Cream puff
Negligee
Strawberry smoothie
tutti fruiti
Tropix
Hollywood
Masquerade and
Rock Royalty

the next four colours I am trying to decide on are:
Black pool (definite as I need a black)
iced cappachino (for layering)
Zillonaire (for sparkles)
hotski to tchotchke
and Purple purple

I would love to buy them all at the moment but I can only get 4...! it is nearly winter here so would like some dark and vibrate colours and also some good for layering!

so if you were to leave one of these colours off the order which one would it be or what other four would you recommend?

I have looked at the colours guide in the shellac lovers group and it helped me with my first choices just hard to pick the next four!

Thanks :)

Do you iced coral for layering or do you definitely mean iced cappuccino? I would get iced coral.

If I was to leave one off of your list it would be hotski, I've only used it twice but now we are getting into the Summer months in UK it may get used more.

Out of those I would leave Hotski, mine has only been used once on myself and once on a client. Wish I bought something else!

I agree with leaving hotski. In our salon it isn't a very popular colour at the moment :)

thanks for this! so you all think that hotski should be left out on the next order? do you think the other three are good choices then?

Thanks in advance :)

I use hotski a lot but if you're getting blackpool and iced coral you can layer them and you do a get a turquoisey colour which doesn't have the same depth as hotski but would do for now.

My must have colours are red baroness and hot chilis - both really popular all year round.

What age are your client base?

If they are younger, Hotski could well be popular especially on toes

If they are older I would go with the Iced Cappucino as that seems popular with 40+ers (hate to pigeonhole tho lol)

Purple Purple I have never used (but then my clientele is mainly older)

Hmmm maybe if I get it and put it on my nails as I hadn't had anyone use strawberry smoothies but then I put it on my nails then had my next 2 clients want it.... So I def do think we are our own best advertising :)

Hi not a nail professional but my mum is a nail tech and im a huge shellac lover, had every colour but my favourite is wildfire!! Its the shiniest, glossiest red ever (the one they use in the posters). My mum does nails in my hairdressers and wildfire is def one of her bestsellers as it suits everyone

Sure we are! People always ask oh what are you wearing? Then they want it!
