CND vinylux gilded dreams collection swatches and review holiday 2014 on BeautyJudy

I am kinda flabbergasted that I’m posting about a holiday collection, while I’ve still got some fall stuff to share as the week goes on!

But here we are! And I always love a good holiday collection – there’s usually a lot of glitter and metal!

CND introduces the Gilded Dreams collection for holiday in both its Vinylux and Shellac formulas, and there is no shortage of bling in this three-piece color collection!

“This holiday season, nails are luminous with glittery palettes on sleek almond shapes, magically iced in rose gold, icy blue and silvery pastels,” says CND Co-founder and Style Director Jan Arnold in a press release. “Marie Antoinette meets Cinderella with our Limited Edition Gilded Dreams collection…”

The Shellac colors are the same as the Vinylux, but I’ve got the Vinylux set to share with you today!

So how about swatches?!

Grand Gala:

Grand Gala is an interesting duochrome – it’s subtle in the sunlight but the beige pearly polish shimmers pink and golden in the shade. It’s an interesting holiday neutral! Shown here in two coats, it applied slightly brush stroke-y but not too bad.

Chiffon Twirl:

Chiffon Twirl is a beautiful rose gold foil. It’s my favorite of the three. Two coats and it was perfection. It applied perfectly. Just all around, a great nail polish!

Dazzling Dance:

Dazzling Dance made me swoon when I first saw it. It’s It’s a blue-purple base with a strong pink duochrome shimmer and even a hint of green shift, too. It’s packed with scattered holo micro glitter. My swatches of this one alone are three coats. I was so bummed this wasn’t opaque on its own! I need to find a dark purple to layer this one over but I also showed it layered over a CND and LVX polish, and I like it over Peony out of the two above!

Featured benefits of the Vinylux Weekly Polish system includes: a self-adhering Color Coat that eliminates the need for Base Coat; Top Coat becomes more durable with exposure to natural light due to ProLight Technology™; dries in just 8.5 minutes and provides week-long chip-free wear.

The holiday collection will be available closer to the season in-salon with Vinylux Weekly Polish services range from $20-$35, depending on location; VInylux and the Vinylux Weekly Top Coat retail for ~ $9.90 per bottle at select salons. I’ve also seen CND Vinylux at local beauty supply shops, as well. Also – for Shellac and Vinylux salon services, visit the Salon Locator on cnd.com to find out what salon near you provides them.

So what do you think of Gilded Dreams? I think Chiffon Twirl is a must-have, with the other two a close second!!
