  1. Melanie,
    Sometimes it is from a need for the Shellac to be more thoroughly mixed, sometimes from a thick application, and sometimes from the lamp as you can read here:

    Thanks, Holly. We do have the Shellac lamp, I wondered if the client was getting too close to the fan? or not close enough? I think part of it was the shaking.

    I have submitted my salon information to the Shellac Salon list. I have been on there and now my salon has been removed!!!! WHY? I think this is a great way to get referrals but I don’t understand why my salon is not listed now. I know that it looks like other salons have been removed also.

  4. Shauna says:

    I have gone back through the process and re-registered my information. I just need to know if that it something I will have to just continue to do from time to time? I love that clients can find the salon through this website.

  5. Melanie,
    If they bump on the back that can do it too, I had a client do that last night! Do make sure the hand is all the way in the lamp as well.

    Sometimes when the salon database is updated, not all of the information pulls through. It would not hurt to check for your listing occassionaly. Sorry for the inconvenience, mine has gone missing as well so I know how you feel!

    I put in my zip code looking for a salon in my town and 10 salons came up before the salon in my area. Why wouldn’t the same zip code pull up the closest salon according to miles from my home?

    • CND says:


      Our salon locator is currently not programmed to list salon in accordance to distance and closest to zip code – we are updating this feature at the moment and it should be available in a few weeks.

      Thank you
