CND | Spring 2018 Chic Shock Collection: Review and Swatches
Just in time for Easter, CND is introducing its Spring 2018 Chic Shock Collection inspired by mouthwatering candy treats. Featuring an updated formulation that infuses keratin, jojoba, and vitamin E, these new polishes also have a revamped brush applicator that's wider and easier to use. To see some close-up swatches and read my review of the new collection, click.......

Taffy:
A pretty robin's egg blue, Taffy is the perfect spring color! The formulation is creamy, pigmented, and not at all patchy. Two coats give a nice and even coverage.

Candied:
This is a light baby pink. The formulation is a bit sheer in comparison to the other three shades so I needed three coats for the swatches below.

Gummi:
A super lovely soft lavender, Gummi is the most pigmented shade out of the collection. I still needed two coats for a fully opaque coverage but the application is smooth and even.

Jellied:
This is a pale pastel yellow. Shades like this tend to be gloopy and patchy but Jellied is smooth and creamy. I used two coats for the swatches below.

The Chic Shock Collection isn't particularly original in terms of shade selection for spring but the overall formulation is very impressive. My personal picks are "Taffy" and "Gummi. If you are a fan of soft pastel polishes, definitely check these out!
