Real Style Tries CND Vinylux Nail Polish

CND changed our lives when they introduced the Shellac manicure that doesn’t chip for 14 days. We thought it couldn’t get any better, but CND has done it again and released their new Vinylux Weekly Polish System that will give your manicure another needed boost.

Vinylux is a new type of nail polish that promises to not chip for 7 days, yet unlike other quality manicures, this one you can do at home! It promises to make your salon bill smaller and fit in with your busy lifestyle.

We were surprised to see that Vinylux nail polish has no base coat. The polish itself is a mixture of a base and colour. It adheres to your nails, but doesn’t stain and helps you skip that annoying first step. You just apply the nail polish onto your clean nails. Next you have to apply the special Vinylux top coat. This gives your nails a great high gloss shine and dries in less than 10 minutes. We didn’t believe that a nail polish could dry so quickly without the use of UV lights, but we promise you it really works.

While Vinylux nail polish is supposed to last 7 days, our chipped in 5, but the best part is because it is an at home polish, I could touch it up and keep on going. Vinylux also comes in 40 of the same shades as your Shellac, so you can touch up your salon manicure to make it last longer if you don’t have time. It also removes with regular nail polish remover, so you don’t have to shell out more money.

While we still love the Shellac manicure, Vinylux gives those of us who want more variety in our nail another option. It’s less of a commitment, but still the high quality you want in your polish. We say stock up on a few Vinylux bottles for those tough times!
