CND Shellac Fall 2013 Forbidden Collection Review/Swatches 0

For the Fall 2013 season, CND has come out with 6 new shades that will have your fingers Falling into the winter season wit ease.

Steel Gaze: a multi-color, multi-faceted metallic pewter.  Falls more in the silver than gold side of the color spectrum.

Tinted Love: a rich opaque dark raspberry red

Dark Dahlia: an opaque blackened plum. Almost looks black, but is a very dark and deep purple.  Reminds me of OPI’s famed Lincoln Park After Dark.

Burnt Romance: a rich rusted brown tinged ruby red.

Night Glimmer: also a multi faceted metallic deep chocolate brown/ grey shimmer.

Blue Rapture: a dusty and muted Dodger blue.

All swatches are 2 coats, cured in a UV light for 1 minute.

Sally Beauty Supply launches ASP At- Home Gel Manicure Kit!!

The perfect do it yourself, at home kit than includes everything one needs to perform a salon quality gel manicure at home ($33); that’s less than a single gel manicure in a salon.

The kit does not come with the LED curing lamp, however, I do highly recommend one invest in one for a few reasons.  There is zero exposure to damaging UV rays with an LED Lamp. LED Lamps also reduce curing time from 2 mins to 30 secs.  This particular lamp works great, and comfortably fits all 5 fingers, and costs around $59.

My personal favorite aspect of this kit was the informative 12 minute long step-by-step instuctional DVD.  It shows you exactly how to use all of the kits contents, and even how to remove the gels safely without harming your nails.

I have tried other at home gel polish kits in the past and always found them to perform sub par.  The gel wouldn’t cure, the color started to chip and peel after a few days, or it took half an hour of soaking off to remove.
