CND Swatches

Posted in Blue, Brown, Gray, sheer with tags on January 31, 2011 by ainamakeup

A few months ago I attended a trade show in Florida for work and snagged some CND goodies for $5 each!  Previously this I only had one or 2 of the CND Colour and Effect polishes, but now that I have a few more I have to say I really love them!  The color impact  so intense I could have gotten away with one coat, but in most of these photos I used two and in one case, 3.

CND Inkwell

Lovely dark blue.  It’s an almost black shade of blue.  Not necessarily unique but a great blue nonetheless.

CND Ashphalt

I can’t ever resist a gray and this one is definitely in my favorites list.  It was pretty much completely opaque in one coat.  Happy Happy Joy Joy!

CND Putty

I got this one hoping it would be a great nude for me.  This was the only one I used three coats with just to try and build it up a bit.  It’s still pretty sheer and I don’t think it goes with my skintone very well.

CND Raisin in the Sun

Ok, again maybe not such a unique color but this is a really nice dark chocolaty brown.  I like that it’s red toned but still a true brown.

I know everyone is talking about Shellac, and while I’m really looking forward to trying it soon, I have to say I really love these Color & Effects polishes.  You can get them at goindulge.com for $9.00 each.  Enjoy!
