Nail polish and I do not get along and haven’t for a long time. It baffles me to this day how anyone can keep a manicure past 1 hour because I sure can’t. I don’t consider myself ‘rough’ on my nails either.
I was excited to try CND’s Vinylux, which boasts an impressive one week long wear.
When applied with CND Vinylux Topcoat, Vinylux shades lasts for a week on the nails. Vinylux is a simple two step process that requires no base coat and is applied like regular polish. First, apply 2 layers of colour then apply Vinylux Topcoat. With natural light exposure the Vinylux Topcoat gets more durable resulting in a week long manicure.
Clean nails with ScrubFresh (which I don’t have but did scrub my nails and wipe them dry thoroughly).
Apply 2 coats of Vinylux Weekly Polish.
Finish with 1 coat of weekly top coat.
This did not work for me as instructed…..and I found out that I was not the only person who had this issue.
check this post out for some up close photos.
I wanted this to work so badly…..because let’s face it, Shellac, Artistic, Gelish is not the kindest on the wallet.
After some googling, I discovered that a base coat helps the Vinylux last longer but not necessarily holding up to the week long wear claim on the package. I like this set but not enough to go back and buy full size bottles. I’m disappointed!!!
Anyone else have a different experience? Does your Vinylux last? Is it just a base coat? What am I doing incorrectly?
