CND Vinylux

This is the latest in mani-tech!  It is supposed to be a long-lasting "regular" sort of polish, that gets stronger with natural light...letting it look fab for an entire week.  Unlike gel polishes, it doesn't require all sorts of shenanigans to remove it or change it.  It also doesn't have to be cured using UV or LED lights.  The process is much faster either in-salon or at home, since you don't use a base coat, either.
1. Start with clean, dry nails.
2. Dehydrate nails with CND ScrubFresh or nail polish remover. Just swab a bit over each nail bed.
3. Apply two thin coats of color. This is Black Pool #105.
4. Finish with one coat of Vinylux Weekly Topcoat. This one is the clincher...its "innovative technology creates long-lasting wear and durability with exposure to natural light over time."
This is the finished look...the color is rich and pure, and just so shiny!  It was very fast to apply, though I couldn't tell if my "thin coats" were too thick.  This applies quite opaquely, but I didn't have to wait very long to apply the second and top coats.  I think I'm kind of obsessed with this already! I will take pictures throughout the week to see how we go along!!!

Cheers to quick, fab nails!
