Get Shellac Certified
Don't Shellac without your seal! CND is launching the CND Shellac Salon Certification Program to assure clients that the service they're about to receive has the manufacturer's stamp of approval.
"The implementation of [the program] will ensure the ultimate experience for clients and will provide a great incentive to nail professionals to provide exemplary Shellac services," says CND co-founder Jan Arnold.
Want to get your salon certified? A CND rep will visit your salon to review protocol and provide education. Register online at cnd.com.
