Happy hump day! Today I’ve got the CND Paradise Collection for summer 2014 for you.
This collection captures the lush tropical hues of a faraway island, which I wish I was on at the moment. It’s the Vinylux formula, which is meant to last a lot longer than normal polish when you use their Vinylux top coat. For me it doesn’t last any longer than normal polish, but it does work for other people I have heard.
Note: My bottle of Bicycle Yellow was super dried out and goopy so I couldn’t even swatch it. But it’s a bright yellow with green and gold subtle shimmer.
Electric Orange is a bright orange creme. Ah this is such a fantastic orange for summer. The formula was really good. It flowed very nicely and evenly and covered with two coats.
Lush Tropics is a bright green creme. This is another really great shade. It’s bright, clean looking and super creamy. This was two coats.
Cerulean Sea is a bright sky blue creme. Yet another really great shade with a great formula. This was two coats.
Tango Passion is an intense purple metallic with pink and blue shimmer. This is a really pretty jewel-toned shade but I feel like it’s more of a “fall” shade than summer. It does get a little brush-stroke-y but covers with two coats.
Sultry Sunset is a medium pink metallic with silver shimmer. My bottle of this one was also a little old feeling and goopy but I managed to swatch it. This too had a slightly brush-stroke-y finish but covered with two coats.
You can find these for $9.99 on their website.
