CND Vinylux Summer Paradise Collection – Cloudy Day, Sunny Nails

I was very fortunate that CND supplied me with three beautiful Vinylux nail shades from their Summer 2014 Paradise Collection to play with – Lush Tropics (a bright matte green), Electric Orange (a bright matte orange), Bicycle Yellow (a bright yellow with yellow sparkles), and their Weekly Top Coat (Shown below. I bought the CND ScrubFresh Nail Surface Cleaner myself for $20 CAN and the artist’s brush and cotton pads are mine too.) So I gathered everything below together to create some nail art on this rainy afternoon.

Now it’s time for the fun!

First I moistened a cotton pad with CND ScrubFresh Nail Surface Cleaner and removed all the dirt and oil off my nails so the polish will adhere better and therefore last as long as possible. I am also enjoying my jasmine green tea which I am addicted to.

Next I painted all of my nails with Electric Orange except for the ring finger because I want it to be a different accent nail. I ended up doing three coats to make my nails really pop!

Then it was time to do my accent ring fingers with Bicycle Yellow which I also did three coats.

Now the nail art begins. I’m no nail artist by any means, but I had to try something cool. I took some plastic wrap and dotted some Lush Tropics on it. Then I grabbed my nail brush and painted some horizontal lines on the Bicycle Yellow nails.

Then I cleaned my brush off with polish remover and took some Electric Orange and dotted it on the plastic wrap. Grabbing my art brush I painted orange lines between each of the green lines.

Actually this nail art for me was super easy. You should really try it yourself!

Now to seal the deal with CND Vinlux Weekly Top Coat which adds a ton of shine and helps make your mani go the distance!
