When Did Red Nail Polish Begin?

April 18, 2012

Red is a classic nail color that really hasn’t gone out of style since the beginning of nail coloring. Its timeless appeal makes it still a very popular color today.

History of Nail Coloring

The art of coloring nails, hair, and skin dates back to as early as 3000 BC. Ancient Egyptians used essential oils, bark, blossoms, and kohl as makeup. They began dipping their nails in henna to dye them a rich, warm red. Queen Nefertiti and Queen Cleopatra took this beauty dedication to a new level by wearing lavish makeup designs and signature scents of essential oils. Chinese, Greeks, and Romans followed suit and also used their own form of cosmetics, including staining or dying hair and nails.

Modern Nail Coloring

The early 20th century sparks a whole new attitude in America. Celebrities with beautiful hair, flawless skin, and meticulously manicured nails were now in the public eye. Radio advertising boomed in the 1920’s and cosmetics were one of the largest sources of revenue. In 1932 Charles Revson of Revlon marketed the very first nail polish. Early formulas were similar to automotive paint. This was the beginning of manicures as we know them today. Women soon had an array of colors to choose from.

And Now…

We have so many options to choose from! Not only do we have traditional nail polish that comes in nearly every color you can think up, we also have other products such as CND’s Shellac that has improved our beauty processes. The first 12 colors of Shellac of course included this classic red color, which they named Wildfire.

Shellac Removal Safety

April 6, 2012

How is Shellac Removed?

The removal process for Shellac is possibly one of its best Shellac safety features. Shellac is removed using either cotton balls or special remover pads soaked in acetone, then wrapped around the nail and covered in aluminum foil. The exposure of acetone to the skin is minimal using this method. Nail technicians should not soak the client’s nails in acetone as this is overly drying.

Is Acetone Safe?

Acetone is actually a very safe chemical when used properly. Ventilation is important when using acetone as inhalation in large quantities can cause irritation. As long as there is enough air flow in the room then there aren’t any known health concerns. Our bodies actually produce a small amount of acetone through normal metabolic processes. Acetone is highly flammable and should be stored with caution.

Will My Nails Be Damaged?

If done correctly, your natural nail should have NO damage during the application and removal of Shellac. The removal process includes 10 minutes of soaking in the acetone cotton or remover wraps. The Shellac then flakes off and any residue can be removed with a cotton pad and acetone.

Shellac Is Safe!

As long as the application and removal process is done by a trained professional, Shellac is safe to apply and remove. Always remember to use CND Solar Oil to keep your natural nails as healthy as possible!
