Oh nail color. I have a love/hate relationship with you.
I love how my hands look with nail color on them but with the amount of abuse my hands take at work a polish typically lasts me about a day before it chips. I know what you are thinking “so use a gel polish” well, I am not a fan of gel polish. (Gasps from Gel polish aficionados) Gel polish did some heavy duty damage my nails a couple years ago plus I feel “trapped” in it. Gels basically hold you hostage until you can get back to the salon to have it removed properly. #NobodyHoldsMeHostage
Enter a pretty awesome solution from the nail experts at CND: Vinylux.
CND Vinylux is a two-step weekly polish system. Unlike gel manicures it can be applied (and removed) at home without any special UV equipment.
It’s a gel-like hybrid that comes in a crazy good variety of shades and doesn’t require a base coat – you just swipe on two coats of color and then finish with the CND Weekly Top Coat.
The polish is 5-Free (Formaldehyde, DBP, Toluene, Formaldehyde Resin and Camphor) so no chemical nasties!
Vinylux is also long wearing! It should last you about a week (hence the weekly polish part of the name) without chipping or flaking and it fully dries in about 8 1/2 minutes.
Right now I am OBSESSED with two super chic shades: Asphalt and Field Fox (pictured above and below). Field Fox is a perfect nude and Asphalt is the ultimate gray/black hybrid. It’s my new Fall 2016 go-to shade.
