The Secret Behind Jennifer Hudson’s Nude Nails

Wed, December 21, 2011 3:59pm EST by 2 Comments

At the VH1 Divas Celebrate Soul event in NYC Dec. 18, the singer managed to match her manicure perfectly with her creamy beige dress. If you think the shade is too good to be true, you’re right!

Jennifer Hudson is actually wearing a shellac manicure from the Red Carpet Manicure Gel Polish Pro Kit! It looks like more and more celebs are getting on the shellac bandwagon. This type of manicure lasts for up to two weeks — much longer than regular polishes — making them popular with celebs on the go. Jennifer’s manicurist, Elle Gerstein, tells that she used the shade “It’s Not a Taupe” from the kit. Have YOU ever tried a shellac manicure?

At first, the polish seems a bit intimidating. LED lights? Long lasting formula? It’s actually perfectly safe as long as you use it and remove it as directed and there are now at home versions that you can do yourself! Shellac mega-brand CND even provides how-to video tutorials on their website to eliminate guesswork.
