CND Vinylux and Shellac:

CND are the original creators of the SHELLAC brand. When applied correctly by a professional, this hybrid mix of polish and gel, can protect the nails and last up to 14+ days with incredible shine! Each coat is cured under a UV light, resulting in a completely dry nail immediately upon completion of the manicure. No more smudging your polish on the way to the car after your nail appointment! Removal is super quick (within 5 minutes) and when done properly, does not harm the nails at all.

At Luminescence, we don’t use just any ordinary polish. CND created VINYLUX to fill the gap between a standard nail polish and a nail adhesive, such as SHELLAC, Gel or Acrylic. VINYLUX is applied exactly the same as a normal nail polish, but without the base coat – so it also saves you time! All you need is 2 coats of colour and 1 coat of the specially designed top coat. This polish is dry within 8 minutes (yes, really!) and is chip resistant for up to 7 days. The polish is also designed to increase its strength when exposed to natural light. PLUS, you can take it off at home with normal nail polish remover!
