"Retreat to the peaceful harmony of nature with the new Spring 2015 Flora & Fauna collection from CND. Colors and styles are inspired by watercolor impressions of luminous landscapes.
“This season’s trends are all about unplugging from today’s digital world and embracing the simpler things. Sun-bleached tones and dreamy watercolor paintings emerge from the perfection of nature,” says CND Co-founder and Style Director Jan Arnold. “Nails are easy and softly squared – as wearable and simple as a barefoot stroll through the grass while finishes play with matte and shiny effects,” according to the official press release.
CND's Additives are in my opinion one of their most versatile and innovative products to date. They can be used in so many different creative ways, the possobilites are literally endless. They can be blended with nail polish, acrylic powder, or gel (my personal favorite). I personally love to do ombre fades with them over gel polish. For the pro's out there, CND's site offers tons of wonderful step-by-steps on very cool creative looks you can achieve with them; check it out here: http://www.cnd.com/pro-products/enhancements/additives/additives
CND Flora & Fauna Additives Collection includes:
Hydrangea Bloom: a glistening light blue with silver shimmer undertones. (pigment effect)
Dream Lily: a fine holographic pink glitter. It truly pops in person, and looks amazing when layered onto darker shades. (glitter)
Nectar Glaze: a glistening light pink with silver shimmer undertones. Think of this as the pink alternative to "Hydrangea Bloom". (pigment effect)
Silver Ponyfoot: a shimmering silver gunmetal. (pigment effect)
Hummingbird: a fine iridescent glitter, that reflects shades of green and pink. When layered over white you get a very snowy Holiday effect, but when you layer it over black, or a dark color, the magic really starts to happen. Hands down my most favorite in the collection! It is so gorgeous in person. I would personally buy the entire kit just to get this shade alone.
(all swatches are shown on either a white or black gel background to demonstrate different effects).
As you all well know I am a Huge huge fan of CND's Additives, and this latest limited edition offering is no different. I personally am obsessed with CND's Additives, and if you haven't ever tried them for yourself, I highly recommend you find your local distributor and get some.
