I was floored when I came across this story about CND’s Shellac nail polish, which guarantees a chip-free manicure for fourteen days. Check out the results of the user-test:
Apparently, the polish goes on just like any other manicure (base coat, two polish coats, and a top coat), but the difference is that each hand is dried under UV light while the other hand is being worked on.
Check out her polish after a few days (during this time she washed dishes and cleaned the bathroom with bleach):
Here are her nails after she scraped them along a brick wall in an attempt to chip them… still no luck:
By Day 14, she had zero chips and her nails had grown significantly!
Normal nail polish remover won’t even get rid of these puppies, but ten minutes in the nail salon with their special acetate wraps will do the trick!
I am totally blown away by CND Shellac! This mani will cost $40-$45, but with the hassle-free, long-lasting color, it just may be worth it…
What do you think of CND’s chip-free polish? Would you throw down some extra cash for this kind of guarantee? Anyone think they might be tired of the same nail color after two weeks? And how often do you get manicures (either professionally or at home)?
