Hello everyone I hope you're well. I wanted to share an amazing package I got full of CND goodies!
|CND To the rescue!|
CND has been known for it's amazing manicure products. Personally if I know a salon uses them, I naturally trust the salon. So let's get right into the products because I am excited.
First thing is first, cuticles! In this package There is a good amount of products to ensure that my cuticles are moisturized & healthy looking!
Cuticle Eraser isn't exactly what I thought it was going to be, I thought it was going to be more like my Sally Hansen Cuticle Remover. You know the type of gel that you add to around your cuticles & it breaks down the dead skin. Well this isn't like that at all. It's more of a super concentrated lotion that also has Alpha Hydroxy Acid which is basically a micro exfoliate, which means it's very gentle on your cuticles.
The emery board isn't something I'd use, I only use crystal files on my nails, however my husband uses it.
Scrub Fresh is fantastic prep product, you apply some on a cotton pad & swipe it over your nail & it'll clean your nail plate of any oils, moisture on the surface. Which will improve the application & wear length of your manicure. I do want to let you know that if you leave it in the sunlight the liquid goes from glue to clear.
Solar Oil is a very conditioning cuticle oil, I've used this on & off for years. It has a beautiful almond oil like scent to which which is rather nice. It's very moisturizing, while at the same time offers vitamin E as well as Jojoba oil. A lot of people thing that the harder your nails are the less likely they are to break however it pressure is applied they'll crack, but if your nail is moisturized they'll bend & not snap. Plus your cuticles will be very soft & moisturized which means they won't crack or peel. Fantastic when applied naked nails or after a manicure.

To be honest, these are my first Vinylux polishes. I've always just looked over them because I'm always feel that they don't really stay on trends. However a lot of mainstream brand don't often dabble in crazy finishes because usually they're over looked my ordinary people who just buy a polish every now & then. However I am seriously reconsidering my thoughts on this line because they are extremely durable, & long wearing, but that just makes me want them to be more creative within this line. Plus all of the ones I have only needed two coats to be fully opaque.

I'm not sure if it's the Vinylux Weekly Top Coat nail polish or the top coat which makes the nail polish so long lasting but either way I can to give both equal credit. Also, if you check out CNDs website they're 100% honest when it comes to how long the top coat will take to dry (8 1/2 minutes) unlike most companies that will say anything for the sale. So I appreciate that. It also keep my manicure super shiny! Hasn't dulled or chipped yet!
Man does the Rescue RXx smell delicious, almost like cotton candy which makes it very pleasant to use. I don't really have an issue with peeling or white spots, however I feel like using it will just be like a catch net in case I do bang my nail on something. Preventing things like that from happening is just important as reversing them when they do. Know what I mean?

Before trying these products I never really paid attention to CND, even tho I know they're pretty popular in the nail industry. However I believe that I'm gonna have to keep an eye out for their products, because I would love to try more of them. & I need to pick up a few more Vinylux polishes because I've never had a wear this good!
