It’s been awhile since I’ve done a nail review, so I thought this would be a good time to feature one on my blog. I was actually approached by a local salon here in St. Louis that specializes in Creative Nail Design (CND) Shellac Nail products. After doing some research about the product, I thought I would give it a try!
Shellac is the only product on the market that guarantees 2 weeks no chipping on natural nails. The salon, Marino’s, is the only salon here in St. Louis that has Shellac products and its nail technician, Maggie Reynolds, is a pro when it comes to application.
The Shellac mani is a hyrbid nail procedure and is similar to a gel nail application. This product works best on natural nails but can also be worn on artificial nails as well. Not only does it last for two weeks without chipping but there is no drying time. THAT is something that really interested me because I always find a way to mess up my nails when I leave the salon, even after I thought they were dry.
The Shellac Nail product would be perfect for the woman who is on the go who doesn’t have all day to spend getting her nails done. The application is fast and easy and before you know it, you are out the door.
The only drawback I found with CND’s Shellac was the colors were limited. As a person who loves to try “different” and “unique” colors , the Shellac colors were basic and conservative. The color I found most intriguing was Wildfire, a bright and bold red color.
Also, the finish is amazing! The shine is something I have yet to find in other products. This finish is to die for even two days after it has been applied.
Below are some pictures of my nails which Maggie did a wonderful job with. In fact, I plan on visiting her in the future to get more nail services done.
If you are in the St. Louis area, Maggie can be found at Marino’s Salon in Creve Coeur. Please call her at 314-302-2993. You can also visit the salon website HERE. To learn more about CND’s Shellac Nails, click HERE.
