CND Vinylux: Holiday 2014 Gilded Dreams Collection Swatches & Review
Hi wonderful people! You read the title of this post correctly… today I have a small HOLIDAY collection from CND for you. Hol-i-day. I can’t event fathom the fact that the holidays are encroaching on us already. Doesn’t it feel like 2014 just started? So I suppose this post is kicking off the beginning of the holidays and even better yet, it’s kicking off holiday collections! :)
“Grand Gala” has gold and pink shimmer in a metallic golden base. I thought this might be a duochrome but it’s more like equal parts gold and pink shimmer so it looks more pink or more gold depending on the lighting. This is 2 easy coats.
“Dazzling Dance” is a purple and steel blue duochrome with holographic microglitter and pink shimmer. This reminds me a lot of Butter London “Knackered” which was never particularly my favorite… pretty but not my cup of tea. “Dazzling Dance” is rather sheer but I wanted to showcase it on its own first. I did 3 coats.
I then tried 2 coats over Rescue Beauty Lounge “Purple Haze”.
“Chiffon Twirl” is a silvery and rose gold foil. Now this is a polish I can get behind. I love rose colored anything. This polish is perfection. 2 coats but a definite one-coater.
While I do like “Chiffon Twirl”, this collection didn’t wow me. “Dazzling Dance” was a major thumbs down for me. If I had to choose between it and Butter London’s “Knackered” I would definitely go with the BL counterpart. As for “Grand Gala”, I did like it more than I expected to. I liked that it wasn’t a duochrome but it’s still pretty meh and I can’t see myself reaching for it again to wear. Here’s to hoping CND’s Winter collection is a little better! :)
