Shellac Nail Polish for Christmas

Merry Christmas! Christmas Eve marks the beginning of the holiday season in Spain (two weeks). So this is the perfect occasion to apply for the first time the CND© Shellac© nail polish that lasts 2 weeks. I have relied on Icaria, the Spanish aesthetic centers chain where VII Desayuno Blogger was held. At that blogger event I was gifted with a coupon for a manicure with CND© Shellac© nail polish. Two days ago I went to one of its beauty salons and had this amazing treatment applied (thanks, Patricia). I was very impressed by the process, that I describe below. I usually paint my fingernails with an Yves Rocher polish, which I also use as a top coat on my toenails. I had been longing to paint my fingernails in black, though I had never dared to. Finally, I did and I'm very happy with the outcome. Maybe black short nails are not usual for festive season, but I love them!

6 STEPS to apply CND© Shellac© nail polish:


VERY IMPORTANT: In between every coat a UV or LED lamp must used to cure your nails. 

1. Prepare your nails.

2. Apply the Shellac base coat.

3. Apply 2 coats of Shellac color polish.

4. Apply the Shellac top coat.

5. Clean your nails with Isopropyl alcohol.

6. Apply cuticle oil.


As I said above, I had my nails done two days ago. I must admit I'm a bit worried about how to remove the polish. At Icaria I have been offered to had it removed. However, I would like to do it myself. I have been told that there are diverse ways to remove the polish. So far, I'm going to try the simple method below.


6 STEPS to remove CND© Shellac© nail polish:


1. Soak a cotton ball in 100% acetone and put it on your nail (repeat with every finger).

2. Wrap every finger in plastic film.

3. Wait for 20 minutes.

4. Remove the cotton balls and plastic film.

5. Use a wood stick and 100 % acetone to clean up your nails.

6. Apply cuticle oil.


Let me know if you have tried out this manicure. Thank you for reading this article. I hope you have found it interesting.

Happy Holidays!

Manicura Shellac en Navidad


¡Feliz Navidad! Nochebuena marca el inicio de las fiestas en España (dos semanas). Así que esta es la ocasión perfecta para ponerme por primera vez el esmalte semipermanente CND© Shellac©. He confiado en Icaria, la cadena de centros de estética donde se celebró el VII Desayuno Blogger. En ese evento me tocó un vale para una manicura CND© Shellac©. Hace dos días acudí a uno de sus centros para que me hicieran esta manicura (gracias, Patricia). El proceso, que os describo a continuación, me impresionó mucho. En las manos suelo pintarme la uñas con un barniz transparente de Yves Rocher, que utilizo como capa protectora en la uñas de los pies. Hacía mucho que me apetecía pintarme las uñas de negro, pero no me había atrevido nunca. Bueno, ahora me he hecho la manicura en negro y uñas cortas. Estoy muy contenta con el resultado. Quizá no es lo más habitual para las fiestas, pero me encanta. 

6 PASOS para aplicar el esmalte semipermanente CND© Shellac©:


MUY IMPORTANTE: Entre cada capa hay que utilizar una lámpara UV o LED para fijar el esmalte.

1. Prepara las uñas.

2. Aplica la capa base Shellac.

3. Aplica 2 capas de esmalte de color Shellac.

4. Aplica el esmalte protector Shellac.

5. Limpia las uñas con alcohol isopropílico.

6. Aplica aceite para cutícula.


Como os he comentado, me hice las uñas hace dos días. Tengo que reconocer que me preocupa un poco quitarme el esmalte. En Icaria me han dicho que me lo quitan allí, pero prefiero hacerlo yo misma. Me han dicho que hay varios métodos. En principio, voy a probar el siguiente, que es muy sencillo. 


6 PASOS para borrar el esmalte CND© Shellac©:


1. Empapa una bola de algodón en acetona pura y póntela sobre la uña (repite con cada dedo).

2. Envuelve los dedos con film plástico.

3. Déjalo actuar 20 minutos.

4. Retira el film y el algodón.

5. Utiliza un palito de madera de manicura y acetona pura para eliminar los restos de esmalte.

6. Aplica aceite de cutícula.


Comentadme si habéis probado esta manicura y gracias por leer este artículo. Espero que os haya parecido interesante. 

¡Felices Fiestas!

  10. To have a manicure is always such a nice thing and even better when it was a gift! I love your nail polish and also that you wear short nails. Maybe because I do mostly the same? I wish you a wonderful Christmas time, dear Jasmine!
