CND’s Vinylux collection

CND debuted their gel-hybrid line in April 2013. The collection launched with 57 “core” colors…and rapidly began expanding as additional seasonally-themed collections were added (I’m not sure if they’re going to be limited edition or not, except for the Gilded Dreams collection which had “Limited Edition” blazoned all over it.)

I tried a few other gel-hybrid and “long-lasting” polishes before trying these out. I knew CND only as “the additives and layering-effects” company, so I totally missed the boat when these first came out. They work wonderfully for me! I can get four solid days’ wear before I notice any tipwear. And while I have had a handful of instances of peeling, that was often the nail itself rather than just the polish.

I love how, on CND's site, they list whether a color is opaque, semi-sheer, or totally sheer. It made my initial choices a little easier to make, knowing that I was getting an opaque pink or a solid white.
