CND The Look for Fall/Winter 2011 Swatches, Photos & Review

CND The Look

CND’s The Look for fall and winter 2011 features two new colors and a new super cool sparkle effect.

The two colors are Midnight Sapphire (deep sapphire blue creme) and Dark Amethyst (deep plum creme). 24K Sparkle gives you a gilded gold leaf effect on whatever you apply it on top of. It works really great with these two deep creme colors.

The formula is really good with these. The two colors are super opaque almost in just one coat and apply very nicely. The Sparkle is thicker, but not hard to work with and you get a lot of sparkle!

CND Night Factory Fall 2010 Swatches & Review

CND has introduced a new limited edition duo-set called Night Factory for fall 2010. The set includes Urban Oasis and Teal Sparkle.

If you have been reading my site for awhile you know I love these CND Effects they keep coming out with. I think I now own about 10 of them and they are truly amazing.

The formula was spectacular! Urban Oasis (the creme color) applied like butter and I only needed one coat for complete coverage. Teal Sparkle is just as nice, one coat does the job!

Urban Oasis

Urban Oasis is a deep teal blue/green creme with a muted tone to it. On it’s own the color is really beautiful and is different from other teals I already own.

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.

CND Effects Swatches and Review

Good morning! It’s officially Halloween month yahooooooo!

Per a couple people’s requests after my CND Colour Effects series last week, I have swatched all the effects I have by themselves over my bare nail so you can see how they look on their own. Some you will be able to really see and unfortunately some are so sheer that you can’t tell much of a difference between them. But as you can tell from my swatches last week, they are definitely all different when put  over a color. These are all just one coat, using more than one coat didn’t make much of a difference. Check them out!

CND Ice Blue Shimmer

Ice Blue Shimmer is one of the ones you can see really well over a bare nail. It’s an opalescent pale blue shimmer.
