Virgin Atlantic named CND’s Shellac shade “Wildfire” the official nail color for its flight attendants. Siren-red Wildfire Shellac coordinates perfectly with their uniforms and promises two-week, round-trip wear with no chipping, smudging, or dulling. And Shellac is not just for the flight crew — Virgin also now offers free manicures in its Clubhouse lounges to first- and business-class passengers. It has added Shellac to its service menu as an upgrade option in its Clubhouse at Heathrow and Gatwick. The service includes a take-away pack with Solar Oil, one package of Shellac remover wraps, and a bottle of acetone, along with consumer marketing materials.

 Shellac was the number-one requested paid service in the London Virgin Atlantic Business lounge less than two months after being launched on May 1. As a bonus, the flight attendants all say that they have had amazing compliments on their nails and are all really happy to be wearing Shellac.
