Today I'll be reviewing three CND VINYLUX™ polishes. I have tried CND polishes in the past and was happy with them (especially with the Effects) but the Vinylux range is completely new to me.
About CND VINYLUX™ Weekly Polish System:
• VINYLUX™ is a revolutionary weekly polish system offering durable, high-shine and week-long wear
• Innovative system includes a self-adhering colour coat that eliminates the need for base coat, and a top coat that becomes more durable when exposed to natural light to ensure no chipping or scratching for at least one week
• In consumer testing of hundreds of manicures, more than 80 percent of clients had no chipping after seven days
• VINYLUX™ dries completely in just eight and a half minutes compared to standard nail polish that dries in 15-20 minutes on average
Sounds interesting right? So let's check out some colours..
Daring Escape - medium blue green/teal with silver shimmer. I find this shade to be very interesting colour-wise and the silver shimmer adds certain depth to it. It applied well and two regular coats provided perfect coverage. The drying time was fast but I did apply topcoat as well.
Decadence - dark red half-jelly, half creme red. This is the colour for me, I love vampy reds and even better when they are jelly-ish! The formula was good with jelly qualities (or rather disadvantages) - it applied well, dried rather average but the pigmentation wasn't perfect. I am wearing two coats which provided very good coverage but it's not 100%.
Tutti Frutti - fuchsia pink base with blue shimmer.Perfect Summer shade, that's what I think! The pink is bright, shimmery and fun. The formula was on a thick side which caused the application to be a bit difficult but not impossible to manage. The pigmentation was very good and two coats were fully opaque. It dried average to fast and I have used topcoat.
I've applied the CND VINYLUX™ Weekly Top Coat over each colour. The formula is fast drying and nice flowing, it's not thick as Seche Vite.
Overall, the polishes proved to be a very good quality. I didn't wear any of them longer than 4 days but they did indeed lasted for those four days without chipping, maybe the topcoat helped as well. My absolute favourite is Decadence because I just love that colour!
