When we heard the Creative Nail Design were about to launch Shellac, a soak-off hybrid that comes somewhere between a gel and a polish, plus lasts a whole 14 days without a single chip, we leapt out of our chairs and performed a little dance, much to the amusement of the next-door News desk. In fact, this latest entry into the fairly new category of soak-off gels has been five years in the making and CND the brand behind it, mixed fabulous one-of-a-kind shades for Marc Jacobs and Jason Wu AW shows this year. We were equally unsurprised however when we also heard that this treatment was to exist Stateside only. Cue sad face. But fear not intrepid beauty explorers, we hear murmurings that the mani should be available in Blighty come the beginning of June. Stay tuned to find out more!
