CND launches Shellac Luxe with 60-second removal time
CND has developed a gel polish which it claims can be removed in 60 seconds.
Billed as “the fastest gel polish service on the market”, Shellac Luxe is a two-step application that claims the same minimum 14-day wear and high-gloss finish as original Shellac but a faster removal time.
There are two products in the new service – a self-adhering base and colour coat in one called simply called Gel Polish, and a Top Coat. Both contain “micro pores” that allow gel polish remover to penetrate quickly using the wrap removal method.
The system has also been created with natural nail health in mind, with the components designed for treatments such as oils and repairing products to permeate the nail plate before application.
There are 65 shades of Luxe Gel Polish including 15 new and 50 existing Shellac colours. Luxe brushes have over 200 bristles and a curved shape for smooth and precise application, says the brand.
“At CND, we are always pushing to improve the speed and quality of our services. New CND Shellac Luxe is a step-change for the industry. It’s a premium service that taps into the things we know our nail professionals and their clients are looking for: faster appointments and kinder treatments,” commented CND co-founder and style director, Jan Arnold.
CND Shellac Luxe launches to salons in late July 2018, priced at £18.95 per 12.5ml colour.
