CND’s Vinylux Grand Gala (177)

This color is a bit more on the sheer side. It isn’t totally sheer, like Dazzling Dance; but it took me more coats to get full opacity (and for the pink duochrome to really show well.) This shade has some similarities with Swanky Silk and Pink Cosmo, but they’re not exact dupes. If you’re looking for subtle duochrome, any of the three shades will work for you. But if you’re looking for the longest-wearing formula that requires the fewest coats for full opacity, Grand Gala is the best choice of the three.

The entire Gilded Dreams collection is both limited-edition, and released in both Vinylux and Shellac formulas - so whichever version you prefer, you can get.
