CND’s Vinylux Craft Culture collection

CND has stopped removing colors from their Vinylux line up for a while…and stopped having one repromoted shade per collection. (Not that this is necessarily a bad thing, because it did spotlight some of the “original lineup” polishes that folks may have overlooked.) The palette is fairly autumnal for a “summer” collection. There’s a good mix of foils and cremes, with one duotone pearl added to the mix.

CND’s Vinylux Craft Culture collection

This kit contained:

  • Brass Button
  • Brick Knit
  • Denim Patch
  • Fern Flannel
  • Hand Fired
  • Leather Satchel
  • Oxblood
  • Patina Buckle

My favorites are Denim Patch and Fern Flannel, for the colors; and Patina Buckle, for the duotone effect. I also like Brass Button and Leather Satchel. Oxblood was a little bit on the thin side, and I couldn't get full opacity and even application after two coats - which is unusual with Vinylux polishes. Hand Fired and Brick Knit are fine formula-wise, but they're a little too orange for my preferences. I probably won't reach for the colors very often (though...Hand Fired is a deeper orange, and a foil finish. I like it better than I though it would.)
