CND Spring 2017 New Wave Collection: Review and Swatches
With shade names like Jelly Bracelet, Banana Clips, and Blue Eyeshadow, the CND Spring 2017 New Wave Collection is combing some 80s nostalgia with a dash of futuristic brights. I've got swatches and full reviews of all six shades today so to read on, click.......

Banana Clips:
Yellow nail polishes are notoriously difficult to formulate so although Banana Clips is not the worst yellow polish I've ever tried, it's also not the best. The texture is very smooth but the coverage is sheer and patchy. Even at three coats I was unable to achieve a perfect coverage and the polish was not very self-leveling either. I wouldn't recommend this as a wear-alone kind of polish but it could definitely work for nail art purposes.

Banana Clips, three coats with no top coat.
Blue Eyeshadow:
A medium blue cream, Blue Eyeshadow is smooth and nicely formulated. One coat was a little sheer but the polish evened out with two coats.

Blue Eyeshadow, two coats with no top coat.
Video Violet:
This is a deep lavender cream with a slightly sheer formulation. I used two coats to start with but a couple of nails needed a third coating for a completely smooth and even coverage.

Video Violet, two to three coats with no top coat.
Pink Leggings:
This is a simple hot pink cream. The formulation is buttery and pigmented. I used two coats for the swatches below.

Ecstasy:
A sizzling hot pink with a beautiful lavender sheen, Ecstacy reminds me quite a bit of the shade Tutti Frutti CND released last Spring. The formulation is on the sheerer side but with two coats I was able to get a very even and mostly opaque coverage.

Ecstasy, two coats with no top coat.
Jelly Bracelet:
Perhaps my favorite out of the collection, Jelly Bracelet is a juicy orange sprinkled with a dash of super-fine golden shimmers. Like Ecstacy, this shade is on the sheerer side but the coverage is very good with two coats.
