CND Sweet Colour and Sugar Sparkle Effect Swatches and Review

Bonjour! (Good morning in French)

Today I am showing you a spring 2010 preview. Yep that’s right, the spring stuff is now officially being rolled out!

As you know I have shown a lot of the new CND Colour and Effects recently. Those were all part of their core line. The two I am showing today will be limited edition. Check them out!

CND Sweet

Sweet is a poppy pink creme. My camera made this look a wee bit more coral than it is in real life. It’s very pretty, vivid and perfect for spring. This was two coats.

Sweet with the Sugar Sparkle effect is really pretty in real life. The effect is filled with odd-shaped and different sized silvery flat “sugar” chunks. I haven’t yet tested it over anything else, but I’ll wager it looks spectacular over purples and blues also.

Now here I did Sweet with the Sugar Sparkle Effect and their Super Matte top coat. The “matteness” isn’t as obvious with this as I thought it would be, but if you look at the regular picture above and this, you can tell a slight difference. I will test out the Super Matte top coat with other polishes later and show those you can get a better idea.

These won’t be available until March or April of 2010 and will be limited edition, and I believe sold together. The price is $20.00.

What’s the verdict, do you like this pink or effect or combo? Have you tried their effects yet and if so, which ones?


It’s Saturday, any big plans? I don’t have any, we aren’t feeling up to snuff in my house so it’s probably going to be a very low-key weekend.

    I keep hoping they’re going to bust out some NfuOh style flakies over here! I only like the effect, so I don’t want to buy them together :(

    This is such a pretty creme color, the perfect spring coral-ish shade. I definitely want this for spring.

    I’m with Rachel – I like the effect, but if they’re sold together for that price, I won’t be getting anything.

    Very pretty shade of coral and I like the sugar coating. I won’t buy this since I have plenty of other shades like it.

    Hi! I was just reading up on some earlier posts made on the CND polishes and where to buy them. I work for a beauty supply company and my recommendation would be to check your local salons. A lot of them retail nail polish even if they don’t do nails there. They might even have them at a lower price than I’ve seen online. If your salon doesn’t carry them, they may be able to order in the colors that you want. It doesn’t hurt to ask! I hope this was helpful to somebody!
