How to Remove CND Shellac Luxe Gel Polish


Shellac Luxe

Taking a client’s old gel polish off is usually one of the most time intensive parts of a gel manicure or pedicure, but CND is trying to change that with their new Shellac Luxe polish. And after testing it out, we can tell you—it really is a game changer.

Here’s how it usually goes: a client comes in looking to get a gel manicure or pedicure. They pick their polish and settle in, but before the process can get started you have to remove any existing gel polish on their nails. Between soaking, scraping, and rinsing, the process can take upwards of 20 minutes, and the mani or pedi hasn’t even started yet!

Shellac Gel Polish from CND offers a better way. Brand new CND Shellac Luxe can be removed in just 60 seconds—10x faster than standard gel polishes. The gentle and efficient shellac removal process won’t damage nails, and the polish itself boasts a 14+ day wear and comes in 65 amazing shades.

So what do speedier polish removals mean for you? Happier clients, more efficient service, and the ability to accept more clients. It’s a win all around.

It’s the unique chemistry of CND Shellac Luxe that makes it so much easier to remove. The polish features an open cross-link structure that allows the remover to permeate faster down to the natural nail, gently easing the color coat off of the surface.

The removal process is super simple for technicians of all skill levels. We’ll break it down below.

How to Remove Shellac from CND

1. Start with a clean slate. Before you begin, have the client wash their hands with soap and water, then thoroughly dry them off.

2. Massage. Give client’s hand a gentle massage with CND’s COOLBLUE hand cleanser. This refreshing, water-free cleanser will smooth and soften hands before the polish removal.

3. Wrap fingers with CND Foil Remover Wraps. Wrap all ten nails, starting with the pinky. For each nail, saturate the cotton side of the foil remover wrap with CND’s OFFLY FAST, then place the cotton pad under the free edge of the nail and tightly wrap it around. Squeeze the wrap to ensure a tight fit.

4. Wait 60 seconds. Once all nails are wrapped, set a timer for 60 seconds. That’s all the time it will take for the remover to work.

5. Remove wraps. Use your thumb to firmly press the top of each nail and slide the wrap up and off. Twist and massage the wrap as you remove it to ease off polish. If any nails still have a significant amount of polish remaining, re-wrap and wait another 60 seconds.

6. Gently remove any leftover polish. The foil wraps will take care of most of the polish, but if any remains use an orangewood stick to push polish in direction of nail plate growth. You can also use a dry sponge.

7. Clean, and done. Dampen a lint-free pad or a stiff manicure brush with CND’S OFFLY FAST and clean off nails for a totally polish-free nail bed.

That’s it!
