Polish Name: Desert Poppy (Week Long Wear) by CND Vinylux

Brand: CND Vinylux
Collection: Open Road Collection (Spring 2014)
When applied with CND Vinylux Topcoat, Vinylux shades lasts for a week on the nails. Vinylux is a simple two step process that requires no base coat and is applied like regular polish. First, apply 2 layers of colour then apply Vinylux Topcoat. With natural light exposure the Vinylux Topcoat gets more durable resulting in a week long manicure.
Colour matches the Shellac version well (which I love). Takes ages to dry, so you have to have the time to invest. Doesn't last for 7 days. Stays on/chip free for less time than some polishes I own, but longer than others... so pretty average wear.
I love this colour. I get so many compliments on it. I don't get 7 days chip free wear out of Vinylux on my hands (I get much longer than that on my feet). I use the system for the fast dry topcoat, so I haven't taken any stars away for it not lasting 7 days on my hands. The formula is very nice, and 2 layers of colour gives me a very opaque finish.
This is a soft tangerine color with a hint of gold. I didn't like it so much at first but after wearing for a week it grew on me. This shade would probably suit any skin color. Soft and feminine color, perfect for the spring/summer months.
I love this polish. It went on easily and uniformly. The color looks amazing and with the top coat, it stays on for days without chipping. I just love the CND Vinylux system!
