CND Vinylux- “Open Road Collection” Spring 2014

CND Vinylux- “Open Road Collection” Spring 2014 0

Introducing CND’s latest collection of week long wearing Vinylux polishes for Spring 2014 called the “Open Road Collection”.  The collection is comprised of 6 earthy and beautiful shades that are the perfect pedicure complement to the Shellac collection of the same shades, or for the customer who prefers polish as opposed to a gel manicure.

I love this collection and found the formula incredible.  All shades covered completely to full opacity in two coats, and there was zero streaking.

The collection includes:

Sage Scarf: a rich sage green.

Desert Poppy: a shimmering fiery orange coral.

Sun Bleached: a pale buttery yellow

Clay Canyon: an earth toned dark dusty rose.

Powder My Nose: a very clean milky nude.

Mint Convertible: a mint green colored apple.

(All swatches shown here are 2 coats, and are sealed with a top coat).

JESSICA Spring 2014 Collection

JESSICA Spring 2014 Collection 0

Introducing the brand new Spring 2014 collection of brights from the folks of Jessica Cosmetics International.

The collection consists of 6 bright “ocean” inspired shades, that I found all to be highly and impressively pigmented. Each shade could cover to full opacity with a single coat, but out of routine habit, for the swatches shown here I did 2 coats.

Conch Shell: a neon Barbie pink.

Sharktooth: an opaque bright white.  I am presently wearing this on my nails as I type. 🙂

Starfish Glow: a bright neon magenta pink.

Ocean Bloom: a hot fuchsia.

Tropical Sunset: a vivid red coral.

Monsoon Melon: a creamy orange melon shade.

Cuccio Colour Veneer Pastel Collection Spring 2014

Cuccio Colour Veneer Pastel Collection Spring 2014 0

I recently got my hands on the la

test collection for Spring 2014 from the folks of Cuccio and I LOVE it!! The collection is comprised of 6 highly pigmented and beautiful pastel shades that will definitely satisfy even the pickiest of salon customers.

The colors include-

Pinky Swear: a pretty pastel pink.

Quick as a Bunny: a light cement gray.

Life’s a Peach: a creamy pastel peach. Reminds me of peach flavored yogurt from when I was a kid.

In the Key of Lime: almost a pure chartreuse.  It is a perfect cross between yellow and lime green.

Mint Condition: a pastel green mint. Reminds me of the melt-away mints from my childhood.  One of my favorite shades in the collection.

Under a Blue Moon: the perfect cornflower blue.  This is my personal favorite color in the collection!  It reminds me a lot of Essie’s highly popular “Bikini so Teeny,” but this is so much better because it’s gel and will not chip.

All swatches shown here are 2 coats, each cured for 30 seconds in an LED lamp.
