If you’ve been following along for a while, you’ll know that CND makes my favourite nail polish formula – the Vinylux. I’ve spoken about them countless times in the past on the blog. I love how long wearing the formula is (they usually can last up to 2 weeks without chipping), the seamless and flawless application, as well as its lack of a strong nail polish scent. Once in a while I would go try out another nail polish brand and it would literally stink up my entire house, so I’m thankful that CND can deliver such a beautiful formula without the pungent scent.
Now that we’re in the swing of fall, CND has released a fall-appropriate Treasured Moments collection, featuring five gorgeous shades that were inspired by the memories of childhood and growing up.
The shades are:
- Baby Smile – the most perfect peachy nude shade
- Secret Diary – a rich violet
- First Love – a creamy raspberry red
- Cap & Gown – an olive green
- B-Day Candle – a rich orange
I had the absolute pleasure of getting my nails done at Onyx Aesthetics Studio in Gastown, which not only is a CND salon, meaning that they use exclusively CND products, but is also the only nail salon I go to for special occasions where I need to absolutely trust the esthetician (for example for my engagement photos!). Whenever I get nail art done on my hands, I generally let the artist have free reign on the design. I’m absolutely in love with the Picasso-inspired art that the artist created on my nails. She used Baby Smile as the base, and accented with First Love and B-Day Candle. It was such a treat and I couldn’t stop staring at my nails.
You can purchase CND products at Onyx if you’re in Vancouver. Alternatively they can be purchased at your local salon, Chatters salons, and Trade Secrets stores.
