NAILS | Green, Green and More Green! #ManiMonday

Two weeks ago, CND Canada had their seasonal event to launch their latest summer collection - Rhythm and Heat to get us thinking about sun, sand and the tropics. It's set to snow yet again in Vancouver so thoughts of warm weather might seem like cruel torture, but my favourite nail polish shades have always been the ones for summer. Neons, brights and holos are my soul and this collection has got me all hot and bothered!

In Vancouver, CND always partners up with Onyx Aesthetics Studio to provide either Shellac or Vinylux manicures and because I change up my polish so much I always opt for Vinylux. I went to see the preview on my lunch break so I only had an hour, but still wanted to be spoiled with a manicure so I had the nail tech paint my nails a solid coat of the gorgeous green CND Vinylux - Palm Deco*.

You know I can never have a plain manicure unless it's holo or glitter so I had to dress this baby up with CND Vinylux - Sugar Cane*, a pale chartreuse creme, that was quite opaque in just one coat! Usually shades like this can be super streaky, but not this one! It's a hard colour to pull off alone though so I think this will be one reserved for nail art. Or Shrek. I added my trusty gold tape and trimmed it to fit creating the final touch for this taping French manicure. One thick coat of CND Vinylux Top Coat* gave me some extra shine as well as prevented the tape from dislodging.
