Arriving in stores and online this month, the CND Vinylux Garden Muse collection for summer 2015 is a treat for the eyes. A collection of 6 shades, it is available in the Vinylux weekly polish formula, or the Shellac power polish 14-day formula:
- Beckoning Begonia – a lilac with fine silver sparkles
- Crushed Rose – a dusty rose creme, my favourite of the bunch!
- Wisteria Haze – a lavender creme
- Lost Labyrinth – a metallic blue
- Reflecting Pool – a blue creme
- Butterfly Queen – a shimmery magenta with chunky sparkles
I’ve previously done an extensive review of the Vinylux formula here, and my views for this collection remain the same. The brushes in each of these polishes are a dream to use, and the polish dries super quickly and with the top coat, gives off a very beautiful shine.
The CND Vinylux formula is priced at C$11.95 and is available now at Chatters salons, Trade Secrets stores and select salons that use CND products.

Nail art look
I was invited by CND to experience a Shellac manicure using products from the Garden Muse collection and my nail artist, Denise, did this office-friendly yet still funky nail art on me. Using the Shellac version of Beckoning Begonia and on all of the nails except for the ring finger, which she used the Shellac exclusive Hot Pop Pink (the Shellac alternative for Crushed Rose). She then used a nail stamper to stamp a design on my ring finger using Beckoning Begonia, and finished off with some sparkles. I’m super loving this design for spring!
