CND | Spring 2022 Rise & Shine Collection: Review and Swatches
For Spring 2022, CND released a new, five-shade nail polish collection that adds a much-needed dose of color to the dreary spring weather (at least in here in Vancouver). With a sunny palette that promises to add a spring to your step, the Rise & Shine Collection is available now in both the CND Shellac and Vinylux formulation. I have swatches and reviews of the five Vinylux shades to share with you today. To read on, click......

Among the Marigolds:
A cheery warm yellow that leans almost orange, Among the Marigolds is surprisingly not terrible to work with. I say that because almost all yellow polishes are a pain in the butt. They tend to be super sheer and streaky but this shade is decently pigmented with a smooth finish. Nevertheless, I still required three coats for an even and opaque coverage.

Mind Over Matcha:
This is a light yellowish green with a decently pigmented formulation. Unfortunately, the polish has more viscous consistency so the finish is rather streaky. I used three coats for the swatches below yet the finish is still not great.

Oceanside:
A beautiful light teal blue, Oceanside is creamy and pigmented. I used two coats for the swatches below. This is probably my favorite shade from the collection, although I am always a sucker for blues.

Poppy Fields:
This is a bold bright red. As is expected with most reds, the formulation is smooth and pigmented. I actually only used one coat for the swatches below but you can certainly do two to ensure full opacity.

Violet Rays:
A fun plummy purple, Violet Rays is nicely pigmented and creamy smooth. I used two coats for the swatches below.
