Layering CND Shellac with Lisa of the Beaute Box

A couple of weeks ago, I was treated to a free CND Shellac by Lisa of The Beaute Box at the Melting Pot Girls Night Out. Lisa and I took the opportunity to try some layering experiments:

Layering Shellac

  • First Finger - Two coats of Rock Royalty, one coat of Iced Coral. The Iced Coral brings out the green gleam.
  • Middle and Ring Fingers - Two coats of Rock Royalty, one coat of Tutti Fruiti. Gives a nice semi-magenta purple hue.
  • Ring Finger - Two coats of Rock Royalty, one coat of Tutti Fruiti, one coat of Iced Coral. And now it looks a little like RBL Scrangie to me. 
Are there any other layering ideas with Shellac you have tried?

 If you are in the Dayton area, I recommend The Beaute Box for all your Shellac needs.


  1. I haven't tried Shellac at all--I am not a salon person. Of course I wasn't a gym person, either, and now I'm there regularly going through my circuit on the weight machines.

    I love the layering, especially the first combination.

  2. I haven't tried Shellac. I'm always afraid someone else just won't file my nails correctly and they'll fall off or something. LoL

    I love the combo's tho.

  3. KarenD - That's the great thing about Lisa's Beaute Box business here. It's not like a salon at all. It's like going to a girl friend's place who has all the stuff. Plus she's also mobile if you don't want to go to her. I hope more businesses start doing that. Makes it much nicer.

    Lisa - I can honestly say I've never had a problem with it (this is my third Shellac). Usually my nails are better filed than when I do them myself. I'm sure if you found the right person they would let YOU file your nails and they can just apply the Shellac for you.

  4. Olivia - Thank you. It was mostly Lisa's magic, though I suggested the Iced Coarl :)

  5. To get an amazing navy, try two coats of black pool with one coat of negligee applied over. To get a great looking bordeaux color, apply one coat of decadence over fedora. It looks fabulous
