How to Apply and Remove CND Shellac Luxe

by Staff Writer | December 14, 2018

1. Apply the color. Shake the bottle vigorously to blend. Seal the free edge and apply an extremely thin, translucent layer of CND Shellac Luxe to all five nails. Cure for one minute in the CND LED Lamp. Seal the free edge and apply a second thin layer of color for coverage and cure for one minute.

2. Apply the top coat. Shake to blend. Seal the free edge and apply a layer of CND Shellac Luxe Top Coat to all five nails. Cure for one minute in the CND LED Lamp. Remove the top film with a plastic-backed, lint-free pad saturated with 99% isopropyl alcohol. Condition nails with SolarOil Nail & Cuticle Care.

3. Remove in 60 seconds. When you’re ready to remove Shellac Luxe, thoroughly saturate the cotton pad of the CND Foil Remover Wraps with Offly Fast. Starting with the pinky finger, place the pad on the nail and tightly wrap all 10 fingers. Set a timer for 60 seconds. Firmly press on the top of each nail, massage and twist the wrap from the nail while encasing the product within the wrap. Gently remove any remaining product with an orangewood stick. Remove residue using a plastic-backed, lint-free pad or a stiff manicure brush moistened with Offly Fast.
