I think you all know I am a huge fan of CND’s revolutionary nail treatment, Shellac, and I know I am not the only one. However, I have been surprised recently to learn that many Shellac lovers didn’t know the colours could be layered to create new colours. It is one of many great things that Shellac can do for your nails, so today I wanted to share with you this special Colour Layering guide.

Do you remember when Jelly Belly used to include little recipe guides in their packs of jelly beans? I sure do. It was my favourite thing about Jelly Belly’s. I would sit there and pick out the flavours required to make some crazy delicious dessert, and then act all shocked when it tasted exactly how it said it would. The Shellac Layering Guide brings up those very emotions for me.
