Hey everyone! Today I have swatches of CND’s new collection called The Nude Collection. The collection consists of four creme polishes in nude tones.
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. All my swatches are painted on bare nails and finished with one coat of the Weekly Top Coat.
Uncovered is a nude pink cream polish. I’m wearing three coats plus top coat.
Unlocked is a grey-pink creme polish. I’m wearing two coats plus top coat.
Unearthed is a taupe creme polish. I’m wearing two coats plus top coat.
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!
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.

Cashmere wrap is a nude creme polish that covers in two coats.
Mystic slate is a grey creme polish that covers in two coats.
Alpine plum is a pale lilac metallic polish that covers in two coats.
Radiant chill is a rose gold metallic polish that covers in two coats.
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.
I’ve mentioned before that I easily get very dry hands, even more so during fall/winter. Therefore it’s important for me to moisturize my hands after every time I’ve washed them, and at work is no exception. These are all the products that I keep in my workspace.
Since I try a lot of different hand care products all the time, the products vary every now and then. But right now this is what it looks like. Plus at work is a really good place to try new stuff.
Right now I have three hand cremes, but I usually have two. It’s always good to have options. And besides two of them are small sizes, so they’ll get used up pretty quick.
I have one cuticle oil, one mini bottle of Seche vite for emergencies, a nail scissors, two mini crystal files (the one from Essie is a bit rougher than the one from OPI) as I said options are always good. And lastly I have two different lip balms depending on what scent I want, pink grapefruit or mint.
What products do you keep at your desk?
