CND Additives- Fall 2014 Modern Folklore Swatches

CND Additives- Fall 2014 Modern Folklore Swatches 0

Introducing, brand new for Fall 2014, the CND Additives Modern Folklore Collection.  Five stunning new pure pigments to add nail art and creative designs to your client's manicures.  I LOVE CND's Additives, and this new collection definitely doesn't disappoint!

Included in the Modern Folklore Collection is:

Ornate Halo: a glistening gilded golden yellow.

Rose Notion: a sparkling shimmering rose magenta pink.

Crushed Suede: a micro iridescent pearlized magenta/blue.  My personal favorite in this collection! It is so stunning in person, it is hard to put into words.  

Jade Rekindled: a glowing emerald jade green.

Plush Velour: a matte velvet navy blue.  I think this particular pigment would look incredible with a matte top coat. 

(all swatches shown here are over a black Shellac gel polish). 

All in all, I absolutely Love the Fall 2014 Modern Folklore Additives Collection.  I think the colors are absolutely stunning, and are quite different from all the other pigment Additives CND has already created.  As per usual, this Fall set is limited edition so I highly recommend picking up yours fast before it's too late!

CND Additives Review

CND Additives Review 0

I recently tried 2 of the Additives from CND‘s staple collection.  I could not be more pleased with these pigments.  I find Additives to be the easiest & most fun way to create an amazing gel ombre effect that will please All of your clients.

The creative possibilities with Additives is truly endless, & CND offers many suggestions on their website: https://www.cnd.com/pro-products/enhancements/additives/additives

I’ve said it before, and I will re-state it again, I personally am OBSESSED with CND’s Additives!! They are so unique, and no other nail companies on the market are making anything similar.  And I receive countless compliments and positive feedback from others whenever I use them in my manicures.

The 2 Additive colors I tried are:

Spectrum Shimmer: a chunky glittery pink/purple iridescent pigment.

Haute Pink: a deep rich hot magenta pink pigment.

For both swatches shown here, I buffed the Additive into the tacky layer of a black Shellac gel polish.
