CND | Holiday 2019 Crystal Alchemy Collection: Review and Swatches
For Holiday 2019, CND has released a luxurious five-shade collection inspired by Swarovski Crystals. Offering a dazzling range of jewel tones, the limited edition Crystal Alchemy Collection is available in the CND Vinylux (C$12.50 for 15 ml) formulation and the CND Shellac formulation. I've got reviews and swatches of the Vinylux nail colors to share with you today. To read on, click......

Divine Diamond:
A pewter silver shimmer, Divine Diamond is smooth and pigmented. The finish is not too streaky and two coats give a nice and even finish.

Rebellious Ruby:
This is a semi-translucent berry red scattered with iridescent shimmer flakes. As you can see, the formulation is sheer but not patchy. I used two coats for the swatches below.

Lovely Quartz:
Reminiscent of opal gems, Lovely Quartz is a pale nude with an iridescent sheen. The formulation is sheer and slightly patchy. I used two coats for the swatches below but the finish may have benefitted from a third.
