Kristina Saindon uses CND Shellac to create this colorful design.
PEP the natural nail. (Perform a manicure. Eliminate surface contaminants. Purify the nail plate with ScrubFresh.) Apply a thin layer of Shellac Base Coat and cure in the CND UV lamp for 10 seconds. Apply two thin layers of Shellac Cream Puff and cure each layer for two minutes.
Dip the tip of a dry CND Gel Flat Oval Brush into CND Additives Yellow and burnish a stripe down the right and left side of the nail. Using CND Additives Medium Green, burnish a stripe down the nail next to the yellow stripe. The Additives will adhere to the tacky layer of Shellac. Apply a thin layer of CND Top Coat and cure for two minutes. Do not remove the top film.
Using a striping brush and CND Shellac Hot Pop Pink, draw two stripes down the right and left side of the nail. Cure for two minutes.
Dip the tip of a dry CND Gel Flat Oval Brush into CND Additives Titanium Pearl and lightly burnish over the entire nail. Apply a layer of Shellac Top Coat and cure for two minutes. Wipe with 99% isopropyl alcohol to remove top film.
