CND Vinylux Intimates Collection: Review and Swatches

CND Vinylux Intimates Collection: Review and Swatches
Among some of CND's most popular shades, the Intimates Collection was once exclusively available in the CND Shellac formulation. For Fall 2017, however, the brand is finally making the shades available in the Vinylux formulation. Because I am all for easy-to-remove, non-gel regular nail polishes, I've got some swatches and review of all four shades to share with you. To read on, click.....

Nude Knickers:
A beautiful cool-tone nude, this shade is quite sheer and patchy. I used three coats for the swatches below and the finish was still slightly uneven.

Satin Pajamas:
A gorgeous soft tan cream, Satin Pajamas is sprinkled with a healthy dose of subtle silver shimmers. The formulation is also pretty sheer. I used three coats for the swatches below.

Rose Bud:
This is a soft medium pink. The formulation is decently pigmented and smooth so I used two coats for the swatches below.

Married to the Mauve:
A deep mauve plum, Married to the Mauve is surprisingly sheer for such a dark color. You can do with two coats but the finish won't be completely opaque.

Overall, I'm a bit disappointed with this four-shade mini collection. With the exception of Rose Bud, all the colors are sheerer than expected. CND usually puts out very rich and pigmented polishes so I would recommend looking into their other collections (see Fall 2017) if you are looking for shades that require at most two coats for an opaque coverage.

Availability:
CND Vinylux is available at select salons worldwide. The brand can also be found at www.tradesecrets.cawww.chatters.ca, and www.nailpolishcanada.com.
