We welcome the new CND Additives with arms wide open!

Remaining calm was not an option when our set of Additives arrived. We haven’t stopped playing with them and the incredible looks our team have come up with are to-die-for.

Additives are a cosmetic grade of pure pigments that can be used to create nail art with zero drying time. Blending Additives with CND Shellac will give you a long wear manicure with crazy-cool nail art that remains shiny for up to two weeks and is pretty much bomb-proof! Here are a few looks that we created at a CND press launch a few weeks ago.



CND has been an industry leader since the early 80’s and the co-founder Jan Arnold is pretty much my idol! They take time in research and never piggy back on what other products brands are creating. When CND Shellac launched in 2010, it changed the manicure for EVER. No more drying time or chipped manicures. Shellac is a power polish that is hypo-allergenic and 3-free (no formaldehyde, toluene or DBP) and is cured/dried under a U.V light in minutes.

This fall 2012 CND will be launching six new “Winter Wonderful” shades of Shellac. So far out of the six, my favourite would have to be “Midnight Swim”. It’s a deep, rich navy that has specks of tiny red shimmering glitter so when the light hits it, it almost has a bit of a holographic effect. Nice? I can honestly say that I am pretty excited about the launch of these six new shades and we hardly can’t wait to get our hands on them at Tips Nail Bar!
