CND has launched a new ShellacPro Certification program, with the goal of certifying 12,000 nail professionals this year. The company will no longer be certifying salons, but rather individual techs. This hands-on training is hosted throughout the U.S. at local distributor stores, salons, and special events. “CND ShellacPro Certification is the natural next step to continue supporting our devoted nail professionals across the United States,” says Jan Arnold, CND cofounder. “This program will make certain that every Certified CND ShellacPro is well-versed on the system to ensure clients consistently receive superior Shellac services.” You can become a ShellacPro by attending a certification event or Master Painter Class listed on After successfully passing the certification quiz, you will receive directions on how to complete the process online. Benefi ts of certification include a listing on the CND Salon Locator, welcome kit, quarterly merchandising materials, and free samples of CND products.
