12 New Shellac Shades Coming Soon !

Here they are... the new 12 Shellac Shades from CND ! The May 2010 launch of this hot new product & its first 12 shades was so overwhelming for Creative Nail Design that the release of their 12 Fall Shellac Shades had to be pushed back to their Spring Collection, March 2011. All of you have thoroughly enjoyed being "Shellac'd" and seeing the amazing results by this new innovative product. After about your 3rd or 4th Shellac visit with me, you will have the natural nails you have always dreamed of ! Several of my ladies have been know to shed a tear or two after revealing their own beautiful long natural nails. Shellac is the first of its kind, there truly is no other product like this out there in the world ! 

     Here's how is works. Shellac is applied just like polish, 1 coat of Base, 2 coats of Color and 1 coat of Top. Shellac can be applied over natural nails after a manicure or pedicure and over artificial enhancements after an acrylic or gel fill has been performed.  Each coat is then placed in the CND Shellac UV lamp for the required amount of time. Now seeing as how Shellac is a true "hybrid" (half polish/ half soak-off gel) it does seem to appear as though its hardening like polish but the only way this product will harden or fully "cure" is with the help of a UV lamp, it will not ever "dry" on its own. The application of Shellac looks easy enough to maybe try it on yourself (Shellac must be applied by a licensed professional, namely me, Linda Reyes and products are sold only through licensed beauty suppliers) but after having worked with it from day 1 I have found it to be quite fickle at times and have adapted a few many tricks of my own (to be kept secret, lol...)
     After each coat is applied and cured for the required amount of time 1 Base, 2 Colors and 1 Top, there will be a tacky residue. This is typical of all gel products and is called the dispersion layer. The dispersion layer or "tackiness" is removed with  alcohol to reveal the most fabulous shine ! And not only are your new Shellac nails incredibly shiny they are completely dry, really ! At the complete of your Shellac Manicure your freshly polished nails are ready to face the world and stay beautiful for weeks! There is no possible way to nick or smudge your Perfectly Polished Shellac Manicured nails !!
     I have priced Shellac according to my market and my local neighborhood and that seems to be much lower than most markets as even compared to neighboring Salons in the Downtown Orlando area. Fortunately for me my overhead / rent is low enough to allow me to pass on the savings to all of you.....

2012 in brief....

 I found this quite interesting and thought I would share it from Naja, Celebrity Nail Stylist and salon owner of Extremedys 2012 in West Hollywood, CA , thankx Naja

2012 in brief

2012The Mayan civilization of Central America was and is the most advanced in relation to time-science knowledge. Their main calendar is the most accurate on the planet. It has never erred. The Mayan fifth world finished in 1987. The sixth world starts in 2012. So we are currently "between worlds"

  1. Humanity and Planet Earth are currently going through a huge change or shift in consciousness and reality perception.
  2. The Mayan civilization of Central America was and is the most advanced in relation to time-science knowledge. Their main calendar is the most accurate on the planet. It has never erred. They actually have 22 calendars in total, covering the many timing cycles in the Universe and Solar System. Some of these calendars are yet to be revealed.
  3. The Mayan fifth world finished in 1987. The sixth world starts in 2012. So we are currently "between worlds". This time is called the "Apocalypse" or revealing. This means the real truth will be revealed. It is also the time for us to work through "our stuff" individually and collectively.
  4. The Mayan sixth world is actually blank. This means it is up to us, as co-creators, to start creating the new world and civilization we want now.
  5. The Mayans also say that by 2012

    we will have gone beyond technology as we know it.
    we will have gone beyond time and money.
    we will have entered the fifth dimension after passing through the fourth dimension
    Planet Earth and the Solar System will come into galactic synchronization with the rest of the Universe.
    Our DNA will be "upgraded" (or reprogrammed) from the centre of our galaxy. (Hunab Ku)
    Everybody on this planet is mutating. Some are more conscious of it than others. But everyone is doing it.
  6. Armstrong also says that two other galaxies will line up with ours at the same time. A cosmic event!
  7. Time is speeding up (or collapsing). For thousands of years the Schumann Resonance or pulse (heartbeat) of Earth has been 7.83 cycles per second, The military have used this as a very reliable reference. However, since 1980 this resonance has been slowly rising. It is now over 12 cycles per second! This means there is the equivalent of less than 16 hours per day instead of the old 24 hours.
  8. During the Apocalypse or the time "between worlds" many people will be going through many personal changes. The changes will be many and varied. It is all part of what we came here to learn or experience. Examples of change could be- relationships coming to an end, change of residence or location, change of job or work, shift in attitude or thinking etc."

Happy New Year GMMXLE !!

Wow ! It's another new year ! Happy 2011 everyone ! I have to say, this 2010 Holiday Season was one of the best in Years. I won the award for "Person with the most Holiday Cheer" ! What a difference a year makes ! This time last year I was in a wheelchair unable to take a step or even just lightly stand on my left foot to stabilize. When you think you will never walk again & then you do, everything is put into perspective ! From my August 5,2009 ankle fusion surgery It wasn't until mid March 2010 that I took my first step, thanks in part to the bone stimulator I started using in January up until this October. Nine months everyday for 30 minutes that stimulator was a part of my life. It helped, I am able to walk, although with a little crooked gangsta Those of you who have been with me though all the years, thank you ! Thank you for all of your kind & caring, sympathetic words of encouragement ! 
The Holidays were great, business has picked up wonderfully & I'm ready to rock & roll in this New Year 2011 !
I wish all of you a very Happy, Healthy & Prosperous 2011 in this New Years ! Lx
