"There's an electricity of unspoken attraction in the air for Summer 2016. Evoke a subtle, sensual femininity with the new Flirtation Collection from CND. A palette of soft yet bright shades teases at the imagination and makes this collection equal parts coy, confident, and playful.
"This season, sweet, creamy pastels are inspired by modern lace and embroidery for a delicate and refined glamour," says Jan Arnold. "The summer nail is a slim oval glazed with tender shades of coral and lilac, blushed with the spark of deepening allure. Flirtation's summer code allows you to be irresistible," according to the press release.
The Summer 2016 Flirtation Collection consists of the following Shellac/Vinylux shades-
Be Demure: a light cotton candy pink cream.
Pink Pursuit: a dusty rose pink cream.
Honey Darlin': a soft creamy buttery yellow.
Lavender Lace: a pale lavender with a fine silver shimmer running through it.
Aqua-intance: an aqua blue cream.
Sparks Fly: a semi-sheer watermelon glitter. In Vinylux the comparable shade is Desert Poppy.
and the following two shades are just part of the Vinylux Collection-
Date Night: a cobalt blue cream. Incredibly pigmented. A one coat wonder!
Skin Tease: a creamy beige nude. In the bottle there appears to be a semi faint shimmer, but it doesn't really come through once painted on the nail.
(all swatches shown here are two coats, and are taken outdoors in natural sunlight).
This is an awesome and highly wearable collection. I feel CND stepped out of their comfort zone this season and delivered some out-there shades that are subdued and super gorgeous. There are shimmers, a glitter, and brights.
I'm in love with both Date Night and Skin Tease, and WISH they also came in Shellac. The pigmentation of Date Night was out of this world insane amazing. And I am very grateful CND is making more nudes, like Skin Tease, because clients always request nudes, and in my opinion, you can never offer too many.
My personal favorites from the Flirtation Collection include- Date Night, Lavender Lace, and Aqua-intance.
Shellac retails for $15.95 per 7.3 mL (.25 fl oz) bottle, and Vinylux retails for $10.50 per 15 mL (.5 fl oz) bottle.
