Review on new CND shellac polishes, Xpress 5 topcoat and additives

12 months ago

Hi everyone!

So I`m a big fan of gel manicures because of their long wear and the way the manicure still looks shiny and fresh for 2 weeks. It goes without saying that I was excited to have the opportunity to review some polishes from CND once again. This time, I`ll be talking about the SHELLAC® Brand 14+ Day Nail Color that were released in two different collections. The two collections are called Contradictions and Aurora.

The Contradictions collection was released for Fall 2015 and includes colors that make me think of New York. There`s a deep red, a metallic champagne and a beautiful dark blue with flashes of green..just to name a few.

The Aurora collection was released for Winter 2015 and includes colors that really would make you think of an aurora borealis. There`s a beautiful semi-sheer purple with different sizes and colors of glitter, a cream pink, a light blue with silver glitter and a dusty rose metallic. The colors in this collection will be incorporated into the current range and will be available after the season is over so you will still be able to get your hands on these!

The SHELLAC® Brand 14+ Day Nail Colors are $15.95 each.

Out of the 4 colors I got, I`ve gotta say that Nordic Lights is my favorite because I don`t have a polish like this in my collection. To me, it`s a unique color that`s perfect any time of the year (but particularly for the holiday season).

I also went to my local SalonCentric store back in August to redeem a coupon that I got in my email for a free base coat, any shellac shade and the new Xpress 5 topcoat. What makes the Xpress 5 topcoat so special is the fact that it soaks off in 5 minutes with no damage o your nail so you`ll be able to switch up your manicure in no time. It came out along with the new LED lamp that CND released back in August. When you use an LED lamp, you can easily get your manicure done in under 10 minutes. The price for the Xpress 5 topcoat is about $12.95 for .25oz

Additives are a fun way to do some simple nail art that`ll make you look like a pro! You can either apply it all over the nail to add a pop of color (which is especially great for those who have a limited amount of colors), you can apply it randomly all over the nail and put top coat in random places to seal the bits that are covered with the additives or you can add effects pigments over polishes that have no shine. The possibilities are endless with these products! The price on these can start at around $10 each.

All in all, I`m really happy with the products I got and I look forward to adding to my collection and creating beautiful manicures. The next time you go in for a gel manicure and the salon offers CND SHELLAC® Brand 14+ Day Nail Color, you should definitely try out some of these shades and ask your nail tech if she can create some cool nails using the additives.
