CND Creative Play Playland Collection: Review and Swatches
Inspired by the whimsical and fun-filled carnival experience, the brand new CND Creative Play Playland Collection introduces eight brand new shades that are perfect for Spring 2017. Ranging from bright creams to sparkling glitters, the collection puts a brighter and more colorful spin to the spring nail trend. To see some swatches and read my reviews of each shade, click......

Hold on Bright!:
A juicy orange popsicle cream, Hold on Bright! is smooth and pigmented. The formulation is also very creamy and self-levelling. I used two coats for the swatches below.

CND Creative Play in "Hold on Bright!"; two coats with no top coat
Candycade:
This is a very sheer translucent white with just a hint of pink. The formulation is slightly patchy so I had to use three coats for a nice and even coverage.

Cherry-Glo-Round:
A hot and bold pink packed with iridescent shimmer flecks, this shade is slightly translucent but still nicely pigmented. I used two coats for the swatches below.

Look No Hands!:
This is a glitter top coat made with a clear base and a good sprinkling of pink and silver hexagonal glitters of various sizes. Below is one coat over "Cherry-Glo-Round".

Carou-celery:
A bright lime green with an almost neon quality, Carou-celery is very sheer. The swatches below required three coats but I was happy with the nice and even finish.

Amuse-mint:
A soft baby blue, Amuse-mint is surprisingly rich and pigmented. A light polish like this usually requires at least three coats but this was a simple two-coater.

Bling Toss:
This is a fun glitter topper similar to "Look No Hands!". Dispersed in a clear base is a mixture of silver and holographic hexagonal glitters of various sizes. Again, the formulation is pretty glitter-packed so you only need one coat for an even coverage.

Aquaslide:
This is a bright medium blue. The formulation is slightly sheerer than expected but two coats provided a nice and opaque coverage.
