New romantic shades CND Bridal Nail Polish – Yes I Do Collection available in CND Shellac, CND Vinylux, and CND ShellacLuxe. A popular request is for sheer, glowing, natural nails. CND Bridal collection is an edited collection of bridal colours and also a perfect option for bridesmaids to complement the bride. CND Shellac Luxe Bouquetis often a good place to start when looking at neutral, pinky polish shades which can be recreated with gel colours. You can play around with layering shades like CND Shellac Luxe Forever Yours, Veiledor White Wedding or look at Naked Naivete and Nude Knickers if you want a more solid but still subtle pink. Any nail technician should be able to create a colour for you by layering shades if you can’t find one you want. If your dress is white, look for a warmer pink and if it’s ivory, either cool or warm undertones can work. Red nails can look good if you’re looking to add an injection of colour to a more pared-down look, but also works with the Fifties of Sixties-style shorter dress. Think about incorporating your “something blue” into your beauty look. You could wear it on your toes or as an accent nail like your wedding ring finger. Blue is also a good option for your bridesmaids if it works with their dresses. There’s no need to match your toes to your hands either, and red can work well with silver or gold sparkly shoes which are often hidden under the wedding dress.
Should I consider gel nails?
Yes! Not only is the glossy finish unbeatable, but they’ll also last for your honeymoon too. Gel nails are a highly risk-averse option. Why? You can rely on there being no smudges or chips – a big no-no for any bride-to-be – and you won’t have to bother with drying time in the salon because they are instantly dry after curing in the lamp. Every minute counts in the days leading up to your wedding day so any time-saving treatments are valuable. Gel and gel-hybrid treatments like Shellac or Gelish are quick and applied to your natural nail so you won’t spend hours having carefully sculpted enhancements unless you need or want them of course.

Thinking of doing it yourself gel manicure at home and not sure what products to use and how to apply it? Great, because I’d like to show you the how-to and tips for doing gel polish at home.
Doing Gel Polish at Home? Really?
The idea of getting your gel nail polish done at home is very reasonable since applying gel nail polish is getting way easier now and it will save you money in the long run.
No more electric drill or strong-odour chemical because gel polish nowadays is just like regular nail polish in the regular bottle without the painstaking steps. There are tons of brands of gel nail polishes to choose from. Esther’s Nail Center offers just the popular ones such as CND Shellac, Gelish, Daisy DND Gel, etc.
Shellac or Gel Polish?
The first thing people usually ask is which brands of gel polish I should choose. In my opinion for doing gel nail polish at home, each brand has its own pro and contra. CND Shellac requires no buffing on nails (so it’s more gentle) but costs more. Gel polish, such as Gelish or Daisy DND, have a lot more colours to choose from and certainly more affordable. But there is more buffing process involved in the application and removal process so it’s rather harsh for the nail. CND Shellac tends to stay for 14 days or more on nails. Compare that to Gelish that stays up to 21 days.
One best way to find out is to try them out. You may go to a salon and see what and how the nail technician does your nails. Then see which one stays longer on your nails as everyone has different nail condition. Some people have a better application with one brand while not on the others.
Gel Nail Polish at Home Step-by-step
What You Need
Basically, what you need for doing gel nail polish at home are listed below. It’s recommended to use gel polish as a system to ensure the optimum result.
Gel base coat such as Gelish Foundation Base Gel
Gel top coat such as Gelish Top It Off
Nail cleansers such as CND Scrubfresh or Gelish Cleanser (blue liquid)
Gel nail polish such as Gelish Soak-off Polish or Daisy Gel Nail Polish
UV light 36-watt or LED Lamp
Nail bonder such as Gelish phBond
Gelish Structure Gel – optional, only if you have weak and peeling nails
Cuticle Oil – important to use it daily
Lint-free nail wipes or Cotton ball
Fine nail buffer block – Gelish recommend using 100/180 nail buffer but we like to use a fine nail buffer because it’s less coarse so less harsh to the nails.
To make things easier, you may purchase a Gelish Starter Kit that includes nearly all products above (except structure gel, cuticle oil and nail wipes). This kit is a great choice for everyone who wishes to do gel nail polish at home.
Prepare nails by cleaning the nails or removing old nail polish.
Push back the cuticle and clean the surrounding nail plate.
Shape the nails with 180/240 grit nail file.
Buff nail lightly with nail buffer block.
Remove the dust and wipe the nail with Nail Cleanser using a lint-free wipe.
(Optional) Apply a coat of nail bonder. Wait until it dries. Why nail bonder? Read the tips below.
Apply Gel Polish Base Coat in a very thin application and seal the edges of the nails. The key to successful application is to apply in a very thin layer. Make sure the gel doesn’t touch the cuticle. If it does you can wipe it off later with a wood cuticle stick.
Cure (by placing all fingers) in the UV Lamp for 1 minute or LED lamp for 30 seconds.
Apply Gel Polish Color in a very thin application from cuticle to free edge. Be sure to seal the edges.
Place hand in a UV light for 3 minutes for dark colours or 2 minutes for light colours. Or 30 seconds for the LED lamp.
To even the coverage, repeat step 9 & 10 as necessary.
Apply a thin coat of Gel Polish Top Coat from cuticle to free edge.
Place hand in UV Lamp for 2 minutes or 30 seconds for LED light.
Wipe off the tacky surface with nail cleaner and lint-free nail wipes.
Massage cuticle oil to the skin surrounding the nail.
Check out these video tutorials on Gelish application.
Tips for Applying Gel Polish at Home
Shake, shake, shake your polish before application to make sure it mixes well. A good shake to make your application easier. Invest in a good nail polish shaker.
The purpose of applying nail bonder is to ensure optimal performance by increasing the bonding between natural nails and gel polish. If you feel that your application doesn’t last as long as it should be, try using a nail bonder.
Get yourself a nice and handy cuticle oil, like CND Solar Oil or Gelish Nourish, because you often need to keep the nails moisturized as using gel polish can be dehydrating.
Any brand of 36-watt UV Lamp or LED light works. The professional LED light that can cure 5 fingers at the same time is preferable. With UV Lamp you have to change the bulbs regularly and takes more time to cure. With an LED lamp, you don’t need to change the bulbs, it last longer and cures in a shorter amount of time.
If you are concerned with UV Light exposure you can apply sunblock on hands or wear the UV Lamp fingerless gloves before application.
If you find out that your gel polish is thick, use gel polish thinner before application. This is a recommended product to save your gel polish life.

Creative Play is CND’s latest line of nail polish to hit the salon scene with 80 bold and vibrant unique colours, ten gorgeous finish types, and this line is more in line with the traditional nail polish segment. The new line is produced with creative consumers in mind, the consumers who love and enjoy switching up their nail looks frequently.
Forever changing nail colour and textures, mixing colours, and creating stand out in the crowd looks. These nail polishes are just as unique as the consumers who wear them. Additionally, the 80 colours within this line are entire, brand-spanking’ new to CND. So what’s the difference between this new line, Creative Play, and other CND lines?
There are a few notable key differences, both pros and cons for consumers and salon owners when determining whether or not to give it a try, or choosing between Creative Play and Vinylux. But we assure you, the pros far outweigh the cons and some may not view the cons as cons at all. It’s all comes down to how you look at it, what you prefer, and what you expect from a nail lacquer.
About Creative Play
This exciting new line features 80 beautiful bold, vibrant, unique colours like Glittabulous, Sea the Light, Orange You Curious to name a few. It also features ten different unique texture styles, including can you believe, four different glitter styles. The ten textures include cream, shimmer, metallic, satin, pearl, metallic glitter, multicolour glitter, holographic glitter, micro glitter, and transformer.
The line is of the traditional lacquer segment. It’s a 3-step system, but it’s fast-drying, and it is “7-Free.” What does 7-free mean? Creative Play is formulated with the elimination of 7 ingredients which include toluene, camphor, formaldehyde, phthalates (DBP), formaldehyde resin, and xylene and methyl ethyl ketone (MEK).
Because the original lacquer itself designed with the standard wear of traditional polish, it is recommended to combine this coat with the base coat and the top coat to increase the longevity of your new creative look for a finish that’s flawless and chip resistant.
Another perk of this set is that its brush is designed with 400 bristle ends, which ensure smooth and even lacquer distribution for a polished manicure look as with other CND brush lines. So, there is no difference in the brush.
Regardless of which line you go with, you’re guaranteed a top of the line brush. A few cons, this line cannot be combined with the Shellac line, whereas the Vinylux line can, and it is a 3-step system versus the 2-step ease-of-use compared with Vinylux.

As you may already know, Vinylux is known for the fact that this is a hardcore upscale classy and fun line that can get your nails through the week minus the need for a base coat without chipping or breakage. Also unique to this bold line of nail lacquer is its strengthening capabilities.
Traditional polishes tend to weaken over time, resulting in a finish that’s prone to chip and break. But not with Vinylux polishes. With this line, your polish does the reverse—it strengthens over time. Click Here to learn How To Apply A Perfect CND Vinylux Polish
As mentioned earlier, this is a 2-step system requiring two coats of lacquer and a top coat. The polish takes about 8 minutes to dry. A base coat is not needed as there is already one built into the polish, so your nails are protected! Depending on the health of the nails, Vinylux promises to deliver beautiful manicured nail results for one week without chipping or breaking; then it’s time to freshen things up or to remove the polish and go with a new look for next week.

Who says you have to choose?
Why choose between the two? Each line has its own unique set of benefits and capabilities. If you opt to fill your salon with both edges of lacquer, you have the best of both worlds. Creative Play is 3-steps, but it’s fast drying, and you have loads of colours and fun textures to choose from—and we mean fun. Check it out here for yourself.
The Vinylux line is also fun and fast, but it’s more sophisticated and chic. It takes 8 minutes to dry, yes, but it only requires 2-steps. The Vinylux process is quicker than the 3-step Creative Play process! With both sets, you have versatility depending on your mood as the master manicurist.
