CND Creative Play Sunset Bash Collection: Review and Swatches
Today marks the first day of summer and to celebrate this special occasion, I wanted to share with you the new CND Creative Play Summer 2017 Sunset Bash Collection. Featuring a handful of refreshing pastels and sparkling blues, the collection is inspired by the perfect summer soiree. To see some swatches and read my review of each shade, click.....

Barefoot Bash:
A pale lavender pastel, Barefoot Bash is pretty nice and pigmented. I used two coats below for a mostly opaque coverage.

Shady Palms:
A fresh minty cream, Shady Palms is on the sheerer side. With that said, the formulation is smooth and buttery. I used three coats for the swatches below.

Skymazing:
This is a pastel periwinkle blue filled with subtle iridescent shimmer specks. The formulation is on the sheerer side so I used three coats for the swatches below but you can probably make do with just two.

Party Royally:
A unique medium blue, Party Royally is a nice and pigmented cream. The finish has a slightly latex-matte finish but it's definitely still a cream.

Express Ur Em-oceans:
Hands down the most dazzling shade, Express Ur Em-oceans is a glitter polish with a translucent blue base. The polish is packed with blue, gold, and green glitters of various sizes, providing a very three-dimensional effect. Unfortunately, the polish is quite sheer and you need at least three coats for a nice and even coverage. The dry time is also incredibly long, so you will definitely need lots and lots of patience to work with this one.
