CND Vinylux Polish

Wednesday, October 22, 2014

It's no secret that I'm obsessed with nail polish!  In fact, when i was pregnant with my twin girls and on bed rest, nail polish was my savior.  It was my one form of indulgence in my otherwise state of repose.  So it's no wonder that over the years, I've accumulated quite the collection.  I love finding new formulas and innovations when it comes to nail lacquer.  While I'd heard of CND, i had never actually tried any of their nail polishes... until now. CND generously sent a few shades for me to try and i have to say, i was sooooo impressed with the formula!  The CND Vinylux polishes along with top coat are designed to last 7 days chip free! This is every girls' dream no?  Well, I've been diligently testing out all of these gorgeous hues and have to say that for the most part, this is the case. I found however that some lasted longer than others.  Before i get into that, here's how this works!  You can skip the base coat (yay).  Begin by applying your choice of CND Vinylux hue.  When dry, apply the CND Weekly top coat polish to seal the nail polish in.  Exposure to natural light actually activates the patent-pending ProLight technology to deliver week long wear.  Personally, i like to change my nail polish several times a week, but i also love the option of being able to keep it on longer and chip free for weeks where I'm too busy to switch things up.  Or if I'm feeling a bit under the weather as i was this past week and simply don't have the energy to change my polish.  The formula of every single CND polish i tried is incredibly rich and applies beautifully.  In some cases, one coat was plenty, although i always prefer two.  So here's the thing, on me these polishes did not last a full 7 days. Keep in mind I'm a mommy of twins and when I'm not swatching lipsticks and mascaras, i also do laundry, housework, have a full time job that involves lots of hand washing etc.  I seriously put my nail polishes to the test!  However i will say that these lasted on me way longer than many others. This makes me excited because it's nice to know that when i need a nail polish to last me a little longer, i can simply reach for one of these beauties and know that I'm good to go!
