Soke off Gell from CND You say!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :Love::Love::Love:

Geeg!!! what say you? :eek::Grope::hug:


This is what I have found on it.

Shellac™ truly is a hybrid of traditional nail polish and UV gel polish. Unlike soak-off gels it comes in a polish bottle and unlike traditional polish it cures/dries under a UV lamp. Though what I really liked is there is NO BUFFING. There is absolutely no damage to the natural nail in the process. So how does it work?

Shellac paints on like polish – base coat, color, top coat – and is cured in a UV light so there is zero dry time. The colors are hypo-allergenic, and “3-Free” – no formaldehyde, toluene or DBP. Shellac will launch in a range of 12 varieties of shades, from pretty French pinks and whites, to siren red and rich darks. The formula is thin and flexible like polish, so it not only looks natural, it provides strong natural nail protection with a resilient mirror finish that resists dullness and chipping, even during the most rigorous activities.

It sounds fantastic. If it goes on like enamel then I wouldn't expect a course unless you don't know how to work a uv lamp.

The answer to your question is this ...........

Naturally CND will only be selling to trained professionals.
If you have a valid training certificate from any recognized source OR if you hold your Level 3 manicure and pedicure, then you can purchase Shellac without training ... it is that easy to use ... but don't think for an instant that its simplicity lessens its effectiveness. It never alters its original appearance in over 2 weeks and it never lifts or chips ... It's flexibility with the natural nail is awesome and you never see a stretch mark of any kind; it stays perfect. Being a hybrid gel, it is completely dry on curing. No matter what system you use, you can buy Shellac from CND.

Naturally being CND we will be offering a 2 hour free class with the purchase of the professional kit to anyone who wants to partake of it (there are always hints and tricks to be learned with anything new).

Both the free training and a kit will be gifted to you when you attend the EVENT in May!!! Now how can any nail tech worth his/her salt and who cares about their career turn down the opportunity to partake of that and get to meet and listen to Doug Schoon??? :lol:

Brisa gels are for strong enhancments.

So, No .. Shellac is completely different it is a gel polish ... it is perfect for those however who can grow their own natural nails or for those who have had enhancements removed to keep their nails strong and flexible. The base , the colour and the top coat layers are a perfect alternative for those who want to grow their own nails and keep them a bit longer.

How much will the full kit cost?
Speak to Sweet Squared after the EVENT or attend it and learn more.

I just rang sweetsquared about it, as I figured the price of a ticket to the event would be worth it if all 12 colours etc were included. They seemed a little unsure. As the event is Saturday and Sunday I can't go anyway as I am in salon Saturday. They were also unsure if I could buy the shellac without a cnd cert. Which I am NOT gonna do.
Hopefully they will supply it.

If you read my post, that is the correct information ... I think you can take that as not being unsure.
