CND Additives “Open Road Collection”- Spring 2014

CND Additives “Open Road Collection”- Spring 2014 0

Yes I know you always hear me boating and bragging about how much I Love and Adore CND's Additives, but this latest collection for Spring 2014 hits it out of the Park!!!! This is the ultimate collection, and if you have not gone to pick it up yet I highly highly recommend you do so ASAP!

The Spring 2014 CND Additives "Open Road Collection" comes with 5 highly prismatic pigments and glitters that I personally can not get enough of, along with a free silver toned smart phone wallet.  Although the free wallet is not my personal style, it will make a great gift I will pass along to someone else.

The Additives in the collection include:

Denim Geode (glitter): a multi-tonal holographic super fine silver glitter.

Emerald Mirage (pigment effect): a green/gold shimmer.

Amethyst Flash (pigment effect): a deep blue/ purple sparkle shimmer.

Copper Mine (pigment effect): a gorgeous bright shiny metallic true copper.

Desert Chameleon (pigment effect): a burnished terracotta with green iridescence. My personal favorite in this collection!!

(each swatch shown here I burnished the Additives into the sticky layer of a cured Shellac polish, and than covered it with top coat gel).

Zoya- Spring 2014 “Awaken”

Zoya- Spring 2014 “Awaken” 0

For Spring 2014 Zoya came out with a beautiful slightly pastel shimmery collection entitled “Awaken”. There are 6 shades in total, and they are the perfect transitional shades to the coming warm summer months.

The “Awaken” collection includes:

Dot: a pretty pale pink. Was initially released for fashion designer Zang Toi’s SS 2014 collection.

Brooklyn: a metallic sun kissed yellow gold. As with most metallic polishes, I found the formula to be a little streaky, so I would recommend using a ridge filler as a base coat.

Cole: a creamy peach. Was initially released during New York Fashion Week for Peter Som’s SS14 collection.

Dillon: a shimmering light sea foam minty green.

Rebel: a shimmering azure blue.

Hudson: a shimmering orchid purple.

Each coat shown here was 2 coats for full opactiy.

Each shade retails for $9
