NAILS | CND Chic Shock Goes Leopard Print

Just this past Tuesday I had the pleasure of previewing the new Spring CND Chic Shock collection and receiving a Chic Shock manicure of my own at the always cute Onyx Aesthetics Studio downtown. Usually I am rushing back to work so I rarely get a real manicure done, but not today! Today I had the day off and all the time in the world to enjoy getting pampered and I have often said that I don't let other people do my nails, but not only did I let Linda, owner and founder of Onyx, do  my nails, but also some nail art!

What is exciting about this new four polish collection is that there is a new formula AND brush! The new Caring Complex formula contains keratin, jojoba oil and vitamin E with an extra wide curved brush to hug the nail curves just right. When they told me this, I was like, "There is nothing to fix! I liked the brush and the formulas!" I thought CND couldn't make either better, but they did! The extra wide brush is wide, but not clunky and the formula was perfectly self-leveling and opaque.

After shaping my nails, we started off with two coats of the pastel purple creme, Gummi*, followed by random spots of all of the other shades: Taffy*Candied* and Jellied*. Linda then used black acrylic paint and a fine brush to outline the spots and voila we had leopard print!

We sealed this work of art in with CND's Long Wear Top Coat and that was it! My first nail art done by someone else! Linda did an awesome job and I love wearing this manicure so much! The new formula looked so smooth upon application and I cannot wait to try my hand at some Easter nail art with these!

Thank you to the CND team and Onyx Aesthetics Studio for having me and for giving me an awesome manicure! The CND Chic Shock collection is available now.
