CND Vinylux Spring 2016 Art Vandal Collection: Review and Swatches

Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links and the products featured were provided for review.
It's always a bit crazy how early brands release their Spring Collections but with colors this pretty, I am not complaining! Inspired by the audacious vibrancy of artistic creations, the CND Spring 2016 Art Vandal Collection ($11.95 CAD) is filled with cheery brights. To see some swatches and my review of each color, click......

Mauve Maverick:
A soft lavender pink, this shade is surprisingly pigmented with a smooth and easy-to-work-with formulation. I only needed two coats for the swatches below.

Irreverent Rose:
This is a rich and buttery warm rose pink. The formulation is fabulous, two coats and good to go!

Tutti Frutti:
A crazy hot pink, Tutti Frutti has a pretty lavender sheen. This particular shade isn't too unique, but the formulation is opaque and easy to work with. I used two coats for the swatches below.

Magenta Mischief:
This is a purple version of Tutti Fruitti, a pretty magenta filled with a violet sheen. The formulation is rich and pigmented; I used two coats for the swatches below.

Digi-Teal:
This is a gorgeous sky blue cream with a barely noticeable sheen. The formulation is a tad sheer but I managed to obtain a mostly opaque coverage with two coats.

Art Basil:
A dusty teal green, Art Basil is scattered with beautiful flecks and soft gold and pink shimmers. The formulation is smooth and even but not as pigmented as I'd have preferred. With that said, two coats gave a good coverage.

Sienna Scribble:
This is a unique light ochre brown with a sienna-green frost. The formulation is very smooth and easy to work with. I used two coats for the swatches below.

Untitled Bronze:
Definitely the most unique shade from the collection, Untitled Bronze is a shimmery white silver packed with dusty red shimmers and red sparkles. The formulation is slightly sheer but I got away with two coats.
