Hello lovelies,

 

It's piCture pOlish Monday again and I'm reviewing the gorgeous Monroe! I hope you didn't miss previous piCture pOlish Monday posts, you can check them out here and here.

 

Monroe is dark berry red jelly with scattered holographic particles. The shade is deep and shiny in the shade but colourful and sparkly in the sun. It is well-pigmented for a jelly formula. I'm wearing two thicker coats which provided me a good coverage. It applied easily and dried average probably due to the thicker coats. I've applied topcoat.

I've used earrings as a decorative prop which are from Talullah Tu. They are Silver Layered Chain Crystal Earrings, really nice and sparkly. I'll be packing them up for my holiday!

 

 piCture pOlish is available at their website or at many international e-shops.

Hello lovelies,

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!

CND polishes can be purchased at your local nail salon, just visit www.lovecnd.com, fill in your postcode and find the nearest salon.
