CND Chic Shock

Hi everyone! Today we’re gonna take a closer look at CND’s new spring collection called Chic Shock. The collection consists of four bright pastel shades that are inspired by the South Korean k-pop culture.

As you can see the bottles have gotten a makeover, I think this new design looks very luxurious and stylish!

The Vinylux polishes all have a built in base coat and there is a special Vinylux Weekly Top Coat to make the manicure last for 7 days. My swatches are painted on bare nails and finished with one coat of the Weekly Top Coat.

Gummi is a light lilac creme polish that covers in just one coat! (Though I’m wearing two in this picture)

I also did some nail art designs using these polishes.

Here I used all four shades plus a white special topper, Spot it White from Dance Legend, to create a mix between a smoosh and fluid nail art. I think they’re quite fun to make and every nail always turns out unique!

I’m glad to report that these polishes water marble, and quite well I should add. I started with a white base (CND Creme puff) to make the water marble pop and finished with a holographic top coat for some extra sparkle.

For my last design I used Gummi, Jellied and Candied to create this wave-y design. The design is actually inspired by a pedicure on the press info that I received with the polishes.

I really, really like this collection! The shades are perfect for spring and I’m really impressed with how pigmented they are for being such light shades.

Unmasked is a nude beige creme polish. I’m wearing two coats plus top coat.

At a first glance I thought my favorite from the collection would be Uncovered, but Unmasked surprised me quite a bit. This nude beige goes so well with my skin tone and I love it even more together with the copper glitter!

CND Glacial Illusion

Hello guys! Today I have swatches of CND’s new winter collection called Glacial Illusion.

CND is a brand that is relatively new to me, previously I’ve only tried their cuticle oil. The Vinylux weekly polishes are, as the name suggests, ment to last on the nails for seven days. I have not been able to try how well they last yet, but it sounds like these will be perfect if your going away on vacation and don’t have time to paint your nails.

The Vinylux polishes all have a built in base coat and there is a special Vinylux Weekly Top Coat to make the polish last for 7 days. All my swatches are painted on bare nails and finished with one coat of the Weekly Top Coat.

Winter nights is a dark blue creme polish that covers in two coats.

Ice bar is a pearl polish with pink iridescent shimmer. I’m wearing three thick coats. As you can see it doesn’t build up well on it’s own, but it’s amazing as a topper.

I aslo did some quick nail art with a few of these polishes. Maybe they’re too simple to be called nail art, but it gives you an idea of how you can easily use these polishes to make your manicure a little more interesting.

Here I painted one coat of Ice bar over two coats of Winter nights. See how amazing Ice bar is as a topper!? I think it will look amazing over any darker shade.

Here I made a simple ruffian design using Radiant chill and Winter nights. Since the Vinylux polishes have a wide rounded brush this design is so easy to make, you don’t need any tools.
