According to Dr. Robert M. Sayre, Ph.D., of Rapid Precision Testing Laboratories one of the creators of the SPF rating system: “UV Nail Lamps are safer than natural sunlight or sunlamps.”  Dr. David Valia, Director of Research and Development for CND, compares the exposure from a UV lamp to that of indoor fluorescent lighting. He explains, “The amount of energy from a UV lamp during a nail service would be roughly equivalent to the amount of UV exposure one would experience during a typical day of exposure in indoor fluorescent lighting.”

April 2012 – As the snow melts and the temperature rises, awaken clients’ senses from a winter of hibernation with three new floral Scentsations lotions from CND.


April 2012 – CND presented its annual company awards to outstanding employees in March. “The members of CND’s team are a true inspiration to their peers and the nail industry as a whole. We honor them for a job well done,” says CND Co-founder, Jan Arnold.


April 2012 – CND celebrates Wanda Ruiz as the recipient of its prestigious 2011 Education Ambassador of the Year Award, the highest honor a CND educator can receive. Wanda joined CND in 2006 and is not only part of Team CND, an elite group composed of the top Education Ambassadors across the country, but she is Team CND’s longest-standing member.


AdAge declares CND Shellac Power Polish as one of the Hottest Brands of 2011, hailing CND for revolutionizing the market with no-chip nail color. CND Shellac, the only two week manicure that is safe for natural nails and comes off in only ten minutes, is a winner among Nail Professionals and industry media alike. Lauded for its patent-pending formula, packaging and enticing color range, the prestigious industry awards for this miracle manicure speak for themselves.

Methacrylates have been safely used in nail products for decades. The Cosmetics Ingredient Review has determined Methacrylates safe as used.  As of August 2011, CND Shellac does not contain the chemical Methyl Pyrrolidone (n-MP). Prior to that, several original CND Shellac color formulations used a raw material that contained trace amounts of n-MP in the solvent. The amount of n-MP in the final formula was below 0.1%, well within safe harbor limits of California’s Prop 65.
