CND Vinylux & Shellac Garden Muse Summer 2015

A bone-chilling spell is upon us this February, however that isn't stopping us from thinking about the warm weather that's hopefully gracing us with it's presence in the next few months.

CND (Creative Nail Design) is soon-to-be releasing their summer collection, Garden Muse. With colours that call forth memories of beautiful flowers and blue lagoons, one can't help but think that the warm weather is just around the corner.

After braving the near minus 25 weather, I was able to see this collection first hand; and I was not disappointed.

CND is known for their Shellac brand. Said to last 14+ days, this formula requires a UV light to cure and is 3 free. CND is also known for their Vinylux Weekly Polish System. Also 3 free, this system lasts only a week, however does not require a UV light, which means you can save yourself a trip to the salon by doing this at home while watching movies with your girlfriends.

Garden Muse will be available March 2015 in both Vinylux and Shellac. All Vinylux colours are new, however Crushed Rose and Reflecting Pool are the already available Hot Pop Pink and Water Park in Shellac shades.While not sure about Hot Pop Pink, Water Park is a metallic finish instead of cream finish.

A friend of mine chose Wisteria Haze while I choose Water Park (If I had known that it was a metallic finish, I wouldn't have picked it). I'm completely in love with her choice of Wisteria Haze. While I'm not a light purple-y person, I need this colour in my life.

A few colleagues of mine always seem to have perfect manicures and credit CND Shellac for it. So my current manicure is a Shellac manicure and I will be reporting back to let you know how well it held up!

Looking for some summer inspiration?
