You may laugh when you see the photo, but I took it in December and I wanted it to be festive, as this post was supposed to go live about a month ago. But then, life got in the way, and I had to take a break from my blog, because of my busy schedule. So let’s pretend it’s still the holiday season, and move on. 😛 This is the winter 2018/2019 collection by CND, called Night Moves. It’s a collection filled with shimmering shades, that were perfect not only for the holiday season, but all winter long. The shades I received from the brand for testing are: Kiss of Fire #288, which is the red one, the one I wore on my nails for Christmas and looked amazing, Soiree Strut #289, which is the shimmery champagne color, and then After Hours #291, the silver one. I’ve talked a lot about the quality and the durability of CND nail polishes, which is always top notch, so I’ll just leave you with the presentation of the new collection. Enjoy your weekend!
It’s not the first time I’ve tried CND nail polishes, you know that, since I’ve already reviewed them in the past. But today we’re going to talk about the new CND Vinylux Spring collection, called Chic Shock. The collection is full of pastel colors, with names such as Candied (pastel pink), Taffy (pastel blue), Jellied (pastel yellow) and Gummi (pastel purple). I received Candied, Taffy and Jellied, along with their amazing top coat, and I thought I’d try them on, all at the same time, to give you my full review. You definitely need 2 coats of each, for the color to look pigmented, and not patchy. For Candied and Jellied, I actually applied 3 layers. Taffy was a bit easier for me, since I got the color I wanted, from layer 2. They’re perfect for spring, and I’m sure they’re going to last long too, since they’re long wear nail polishes that last on the nails for 7 days. Have you tried any of these?
The new Glacial Illusion collection of CND for Winter 2018, is full of icy-cool shades, which I personally adore. It includes 6 colors, as always, with names such as “Ice Bar”, “Cashmere Wrap”, “Radiant Chill”, “Alpine Plum”, “Mystic Slate” and “Winter Nights”. “Ice Bar” is a shimmery translucent pink, “Cashmere Wrap” is a nice pink/beige, “Radiant Chill” may look copper but it actually has rose gold hues, and gives a nice mirror effect, “Alpine Plum” is an icy lilac shade (which I’d love to add to my collection), “Mystic Slate” is icy grey/blue, and last but not least, “Winter Nights” is a nice deep night blue. The last one gives a pop of bold color to the whole collection and makes a nice combination with practically any color of Glacial Illusion. As you can see from the photo above, I received the colors “Winter Nights”, “Radiant Chill” and “Cashmere Wrap” of the collection, along with their famous top coat which I love. They’re all very pretty, but I personally loved Radiant Chill which I’m currently wearing on my nails.
I have reviewed this collection in one of my videos, but I realized, that I haven’t done it on my blog where I also write in English. So let’s review the new Rhythm & Heat collection of CND. I received these nail polishes some time ago, and I tried them on in the next couple of weeks. Starting from left to right, the coral one is #244 Mambo Beat, and it’s the best one among the 3. You only need one coat to have a nice non-sheer color, but you have the perfect coverage with 2 layers. #245, Sugarcane is the next best one. However, you definitely need 2 coats of this for a full coverage, and non-sheer result. Finally, with #249 Shells in the Sand you definitely need 3 coats of nail polish to have the desirable result but the color does look perfect in the end. CND’s Vinylux top coat is a classic you must own. It makes your manicure last longer, makes your nails shinier, and helps your nail polish dry faster. Have you tried any of these? What’s your opinion?
A few days ago, I went shopping for sales, and for a birthday present for a friend, and I came home with these. Some nail polishes, 2 gold rings, and a hair donut. I don’t know if you’re familiar with this item, but it’s used to create nice hair buns. This one can also be used open, for different hairstyles.
