"CND’s new Fall 2015 Contradictions collection, featuring CND® SHELLAC® brand 14+ day nail color and VINYLUX® Weekly Polish.
Turn up the contrast with the new Fall 2015 Contradictions collection from CND. Textures and tones collide for an unexpected elegance: leather and lace, street and chic, metal and pearl.
“This season’s trends celebrate an unexpected clash between gritty street elements and elegant details for a dynamic combination of glamour and grunge,” says CND Co-founder and Style Director Jan Arnold. “Nails evoke an edgy narrative with blackened pigments and heraldic ornaments. Enhanced almonds in purple and red are deepened and oxidized with smoked pearl and steel finishes” according to the official Press release.
I've previously reviewed the Contradictions Collection in Shellac, which features the same shades except for 2 which are exclusive to Vinylux. To see my review and swatches of the other Contradictions Collection hues, check out my previous blog post: http://www.merricures.com/blog/cnd-fall-2015-shellac-contradictions-collection-review/
The 2 exclusive Vinylux shades for Fall 2015 from the Contradictions Collection are:
Grommet: a metallic pearly dark gunmetal with blue undertones. I am obsessed with this shade. I am wearing it on my toes as we speak. I have already received countless complements on it. I wish CND made this shade in Shellac!! Hopefully in the future they will 😉
Couture Covet: a deep navy blue creme.
(all swatches shown here are two coats, and most images are taken outdoors in natural lighting).
I really like these new shades. I wish CND made them in Shellac as well, particularly Grommet. Both shades painted on smoothly, evenly, and easily, with zero brush strokes. I also found them to be heavily pigmented, providing complete coverage in two coats. I highly recommend them. If you are only going to buy one of them I would recommend Grommet.
