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.
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.
