I wanted to love CND Vinylux. I really did. And there were a few things I really did like.

1. No base coat is required, in fact, you are not supposed to use a base coat.

2. I *love* that this was dry, enough to rub my nails without damage, in just 8 1/2 minutes. I painted them about an hour before we went out for dinner and it was nice not to have to worry about denting my polish.

3. The polish applied easily onto the nail with great pigmentation.

4. Even though no base coat was used, I got absolutely no staining, and it was super easy to remove using my normal method- the scrubby tub.

But I did not like the chips that started appearing on day 4. To me, they were bad enough that it had to be removed. I can get wear similar to that with my regular base and top coats......

I'm going to give Vinylux another try with a different shade and see what kind of results I get. But I was definitely disappointed in the wear time of this mani.

Pin It!
