CND Shellac aftercare advice

Shellac™ Colour Stability:

All cosmetic formulas, including the Shellac™ formula, are regulated to cosmetic approved ingredients. Unfortunately, some pigments that are approved for cosmetics are more likely to fade than others. Just like when wearing nail polish or other cosmetic products, you may experience slight fading when wearing some Shellac™ colours over time.

Not all Shellac™ colours will fade, but some colours have a greater tendency to fade than others. In general lighter colours are less colour stable than darker colours. Negligee, Romantique, Strawberry Smoothie and Rosebud are most common colours that may show signs of fading within the Shellac colour range. These lighter shades have one thing in common – pink. The pigmentation used to create pink is more prone to fading. The good news is that even through Shellac™ pink may fade when worm over time, they do so at a much slower rate than nail polish under the same condition.

Shellac™ is generally less chemically resistant than gels, liquid & powders or other enhancement products. Some pigments in Shellac™ can be easily attacked by chemical exposure during daily activities such as bathing, house cleaning, laundry, gardening, car washing, swimming, etc. Sun light exposure can also make colours fade faster. Heat and humidity have less effect on fading, but can accelerate fading when combined with chemical or sunlight exposure.

Shellac™ should not limit daily activity, however to minimise fading and maximize long-term wear of Shellac™ please follow the following guidelines.

      • Wear gloves when you work with household products that contain solvents and/or strong oxidising agents (such as chlorine, bleach and strong detergents).
      • Minimise the time in swimming pools (in which water contains chlorine) and public Jacuzzi (which contain even more chlorine and high temperature). Rinse hands thoroughly after swimming and using public Jacuzzi to make sure the chlorine is removed.
      • Minimise sun light exposures, especially right after spending time in swimming pools.
      • Choose hand lotions carefully, Stay away from lotions that include strong active ingredients such as tanning lotions and skin bleaching lotions. Mild lotions such as baby lotions are good choices.
      • We highly recommend using CND SolarOil™ twice a day to keep your nails nourished and conditioned. CND SolarOil™ is a rejuvenating blend of jojoba, rice bran and sweet almond oils infused with the power of vitamin E, penetrate deeply into cuticles and nails to prevent them from becoming brittle and to promote healthy nail growth. CND SolarOil™ has a long and prestigious history; it has been present in the world's finest salons for over 30 years.
      • Please do not peel or pick a chipped or lifted Shellac™ colour applications from your nail. This may cause damage to your natural repair. Please get them checked by a professional for possible repair or removal.
