CND Spring 2018 Chic Shock Vinylux and Shellac-BEAUTYGEEKS

Wheee!!! Springtime! And not just Spring, but the Spring shades you’ve been hankering for! Who’s got ‘em? CND Vinylux has, in their 4-shade Chic Shock Collection for 2018.

CND Vinylux Candied 273 – Chic Shock Spring 2018 (above). That’s 2 splendidly easy coats for a most perfect pastel pink. Is it just me or is anyone else craving Cadbury Mini Eggs now?

CND Vinylux Taffy 274 - Chic Shock Collection Spring 2018

CND Vinylux Taffy 274 – Chic Shock Spring 2018 (above). This one was a tiny bit patchy in 2 coats, so I did 3 thin ones to get that perfect result. Slap that Long Wear Top Coat over it to pop big shine and maybe even extend your wear.

CND Vinylux Jellied 275 - Chic Shock Collection Spring 2018

CND Vinylux Jellied 275 – Chic Shock Spring 2018 

CND Vinylux Jellied 275 – Chic Shock Spring 2018 (above). Don’t freak out, but that’s a 2-coat pastel yellow. How? I’m going to put it down to the new brush. I mean the Vinylux brush was good before, but now it’s super-fantastic!

CND Vinylux New Brush 2018

CND Vinylux pre-2018 brush (left) vs 2018 brush (right). The easiest way to show you the new brush is put the Top Coat ones side by side. Not only is the brush-actual different, but the length of the wand is different too. I never, ever had issues with the old brush, but until this switch, I never knew it could get easier to use Vinylux. Kudos to Revlon for taking a good product and making it even better.

CND Vinylux Gummi 276 - Chic Shock Collection Spring 2018

Oh! I should mention that I first saw the new brush in late 2017, but for 2018 there’s also new bottle ink. It’s a nice, simple update that suits this brand perfectly.

The CND Chic Shock Collection (in both Vinylux & Shellac) is available March 2018 from all your usual retailers.

You feelin’ this lovely little pastel collection for Spring? I know I am! Let’s chat!
