|CND Shellac, Cocoa. 2 coats.|
Cocoa is a really nice opaque tan cream, not too light, not too dark. The bottle makes it look a little orange and dark but on the nail its much better. I think this would look universally flattering on all skin tones. The formula on gel polish tends to be a little thicker than regular polish but if you slow down your application a little you will find it flows nicely onto the nail. I did get some bubbles in there but I think it was due to the hot weather we were having back in May (an unusually warm spring).
In November we will be heading out for a camping trip and I plan on using my Shellac again then; I love that it gives my nails an extra layer of protection from breakage; camping tends to be rough on my nails. Especially when handling guns.
I only had this on for 7 days but it held up beautifully, no tip wear, no chipping, and the glossy finish stayed intact and unscratched.
