CND Shellac, Meet a Cheetah

My latest obsession is UV gel nail polish.  It's p-h-e-n-o-m-e-n-a-l.  The problem is that I only have three colors right now because there's a shortage in the market. I need MORE!

Now normally, you are not supposed to use gel polish with any other formulation of polish.  I took a risk and decided to layer CND Shellac in "Tutti Frutti" with a black Konad cheetah design.  It worked!  No peeling, chipping or bizarre reactions so far. 

This is the manicure I gave Sarah last night.


  1. I love this. I've been wanting to do a cheetah print on my nails lately but I'm not talented enough to free-hand it. I've gotta get that konad plate!

  2. Did you just cure the coats of gel polish for 2 min and then place the konad design on sticky cured gel polish?? Im confused, wouldnt the gel polish smudge with the pressure of the stamp?
