CND Open Road Collection & Swatches

1-cndThe CND Spring Open Road collection is a set of 6 chic Vinylux shades. To me, these muted shades scream spring! This was my first time wearing Vinylux and it won’t be my last!

Vinylux polishes are designed to last for a week. I am very hard on my nails. I wore these polishes for a week, and the colour did last. Towards the end, the polish at the very tips of my nails would chip off, but it was very gradual. The polish stayed glossy! So how do they work?

Deborah Lippmann Spring Reveries Swatches

1-IMG_0169It’s April! And it’s finally warming up! I finally feel like wearing these pale pastel shades. Deborah Lippmann has a new collection for spring! Spring Reveries has 6 limited edition shades.

This was my first time using Deborah Lippmann polishes, and I really liked them. The polishes go on thin and almost watery, so you have to build up the shade.

Once you do though, it provides good coverage and stays shiny. Removal is a breeze; they come off easily with one swipe of remover. On to the polishes!

OPI Sheer Tints

1-DSC_0906This spring OPI takes nail color to the next level with revolutionary Sheer Tints; the brand’s first-ever, pigmented top coats.  Sheer Tints by OPI offers a fresh take on traditional top coats with the introduction of 4 new vivid hues in Blue, Pink, Yellow and Purple.  An infusion of transparent color with high shine, these top coats can be worn alone, with a base coat for a playful sheer or layered over any shade to create an alternate finish for a progressive nail look.

I tried out I’m Never Amberrassed: (Liquid amber morphs into a veneer of yellow tint that is anything but bashful.) and Don’t Violet Me Down: (You can count on this crystal sheer amethyst.) (more…)

Taking Care of your Nails

I’m guilty of mistreating my nails. I constantly put on polish without a base coat, I let dark polish stain my nails and I neglect my cuticles.

This year I’m hoping to change all that by really taking care of my nails.

1-Feburary 20142Cuticle Rehab : This cuticle oil is packaged in a cool little tube with a brush for application. It’s just like lip gloss- but for your cuticles. This oil helps to restore moisture to your cuticles and it’s formulated with Jasmine, Rose extracts and Vitamin E.

1-IMG_0483Triple Shine Topcoat does exactly what is say. It delivers lots of shine. I love it’s thick formula and it’s extra wide brush. It’s an acrylic topcoat that dries pretty quickly and leaves nails shiny for days.

So shiny!
