CND Vinylux Nail Polish

Without question, my favourite nail polish brand is CND and it has been for a good few years now.  Whenever I go and have my nails done, my brand of choice is always CND and it has got to the point now where my manicurist doesn't even ask which brand or shade - I am that predictable.

CND Vinylux is described as being the ultimate, long-wear lacquer and chip-resistant polish which stays as good as new for seven days. It has its own built-in base coat, so there is no need to apply one beforehand and it stars the brand’s innovative ‘Pro-light Technology’, which hardens through exposure to natural light – meaning your manicure becomes more durable with time. I was kindly sent two shades from the Nightspell collection and both are shades that I would wear all year round and a Weekly Top Coat too, which is amazing. I am not someone who is a huge fan of bright pastel shades, I am definitely a Berry nail kind of girl. 

Berry Boudoir is a beautiful rich berry metallic which needs just two coats to really shine. I like how the brush is not too long but it fans out to cover my entire nail really well. For me, using a nail polish needs to be straightforward and the wrong kind of brush can ruin it all.

Two coats of Boudoir Berry is just enough to ensure the colour coats the nail well and gives it a shine.  Once applied it dries in just a few minutes and I always wait a good 10-15 minutes before applying the weekly top coat.

The second shade is called Lilac Eclipse and it is best described as being creamy light berry shade. Again it features the same brush as Boudoir Berry, so the application is a breeze and texture wise, I did find this one to be just slightly thicker, but you do still need those two coats to ensure you have full nail coverage.

Again, once the polish has dried, I add the Weekly Top Coat and allow around ten minutes for drying time. It does actually dry much quicker than the time I allow, but I am a bit of a clutz when I polish my own nails and always manage to smudge at least one nail, so I am always cautious having gone to the effort of doing my own.

The Weekly Top Coat is described as being a quick-drying, this clear glossy top coat protects your Vinylux nail polish with mirror-like shine.

You only need to apply one, generous coat of Weekly Top Coat to protect your colour and create a high-shine finish.

As I have said, CND is my favourite nail polish. I use my hands a lot for work, I am always typing somewhere on something and can also be found sticking my hands into the photocopier to remove jammed paper, changing cartridges and even dealing with other bits of machinery which often ruin nail polish and manicures. With CND, what I have found is that it is more durable than most and it doesn't chip, even at my most clumsy. It is also easy to remove and doesn't require industrial strength nail polish remover to shift it, the Cutex one I use removes it all in one simple swipe of the nail.

You can find these three products and many more from the CND catalogue via Cult Beauty where prices start around £9.

  7. I don’t wear a lot of polish. I’m so terrible at doing them myself but lilac eclipse is a beautiful shade! I can imagine it would look especially nice in the spring and summer time x
