Duplicating CND Additive Sizzling Sands

From the moment I saw CND Additive in 'Sizzling Sands,' I knew it was going to be popular.  It was part of the Paradise Collection of Additives which is probably my favourite set so far.

For those who weren't only to get their hands on it, I wanted to see if I could find an alternative of it and also for the people like Mandi Whorton who have managed to completely finish their pots of it already!

As I used acrylic powder in my The Perfect Peach Shellac Shade, I have had someone ask me if it's okay to use with Shellac.  A while ago, amazing nail technician Gigi Rouse herself openly advised that as there is not a white Additive, she sees no harm in using a little white acrylic powder.

As I explain in my video, the acrylic powder I used doesn't seem to be a true acrylic product as when I mix it with acrylic liquid to try and form a bead, it doesn't set.  Therefore I do believe that this particular shade may have only been designed to mix with other colours, and Shellac!

I really had fun filming my little experiment!  Here's the video!

 

I think that the alternative I've found is pretty close, I'm really happy with it so I hope this helps!
