CND Vinylux-the Forbidden collection

*This post contains products sent for review.  I like to state this first out of respect for my readers. This does not change my opinion of the products.*

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.

Directions:

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.

WELL.

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?

This contest could change your (beauty) life! Open to Canada AND USA!

Oh girls…..I must tell you about probably one of the most awesome giveaways ever.

NailPolishCanada.com is giving away a lifetime supply of Shellac.

Yes you read correctly.  Let me bold the same sentence for more impact-as if you needed any….

NailPolishCanada.com is giving away a lifetime supply of Shellac!

Real quickly…if you don’t know what Shellac is (although I constantly rave about it)

CND Shellac is a cross between nail polish and gel. Shellac is applied like regular nail polish and then cured using a UV lamp. 

Shellac lasts much longer than your regular manicure; up to 14 days without chipping or peeling. Dry time is instant, making the application process fast and ensuring your polish doesn’t smudge.

The giveaway/entry (and contest rules) form is here and all you have to do is state why winning would impact you for better or for worse.  It won’t take you more than 5 minutes because I know if you’re still reading you’ve already come up with 13741385 reasons why winning would make your millenium!

 

Good luck everyone!
