I've received these CND samples to review
SpaPedicure Marine Salt Scrub and Colour & Effects nail polishes in
Raspberry Parfait #519, Eclectic Purple #536, Plumville #534, and Violet Shimmer #558
When I received these beauties all I could say was "Wow I LOVEEE THEM!"
They were essential needs for any girls and/or women.
Style finishes off with eclectic nail colors and arts
to add more perfection: we need scrub to polish and make our feet and hands gentle/smooth
this is Raspberry Parfait #519 the one marked in star
and Violet Shimmer #558
CND says that this is just like how we get dressed up
"Colours are the clothes-Effects the accessories."
So play it however you'd like to get dressed up in your own unique and personal styles
the one I've got is the Shimmer category for "more dramatic" effects.
the Raspberry color was very adorble and sweet reminding me of sweet 16
it's bright enough but not like HOT pink if that makes sense to you? ;)
it had been picked as allure's editors choice award
I can get the feel why this has claimed the winner throne and marked the best color.
the violet shimmer was very romantic.
it had this aura that made the colours appear way different than just the colours by themselves.
with this effect ON, the colours become mysteriously beautiful like in the fairy tale mood
This is the Plumville #534 the one on the very right from the third line from the very below
My grandmother applied this color for her pedicure with me
this color was more mature plum shades than the brighter ones
sophisticated and very charming
this Eclectic Purple was very feminine and attractive to me
and I loved all of these bottle shapes
they were ergonomically designed so they were easy to reach to and hold in palm of hand with comfortable grip
There are 50+ colors to choose from at www.cnd.com
The brush made it so easy to apply and that's why my grandmother & I liked them even more
the brush made the full, even, and smooth coats of application
the colors of course were all so gorgeous
and if you want darker and the colors to last a little longer, two thin coats are needed
but I applied once and they looked so great!
they dry really fast and CND's benefits are the 3 frees-no toluene, formaldehyde, or DBP (Dibutyl Phthalate)
*Turn bottle upside down & roll between your palms to blend the colors
Colour- .33 fl oz bottle $9.00 / $11.30 CA
Effect- .33 fl oz bottle $11.00 / $13.80 CA
First off I wanted to apologize that I hadn't had my digital camera or DSLR with me to provide higher resolutions, but with that strong lighting my galaxy s was best I could find!
my grandmother took these photos while I was still painting and drying my nails
afraid of getting them marked by wrong movement
so the above picture is with the colour & effect altogether
pinky, middle: Plumville
ring and index: eclectic purple
thumb: raspberry parfait
FIRSTLY the smell is awesome
I think I can fall asleep right away at this hour (it's 7:52 PM here) after I've just washed off my scrub
SECONDLY the color:
this is also purple + blue-ish beautiful shades
I feel like I'm at the beautiful ocean
able to see the clear water to see the fishes and lively animals swimming across my feet
THIRD: the polish
it wasn't too rough as I'd expected from the "Salt Scrub"
I had to stir the contents before use and then to scrub it all over my foot, calf and shin (dry your foot and lower leg!)
It instructed for me to massage for about 3-5 minutes. I did it for about I think.. 2-3 minutes
but still I got the best results I could.
LASTLY the finish feel
and after I've used it says on the paper that it can be used all over my body as well
tomorrow the first thing I'll do is to put this in my personal locker at the spa I go to daily
it is so smooth and today I've got my new platforms and walked in that 4 inches all day long
so i had a tired feet
now i don't see that rough lines occurring from wearing heels
but instead i've got such gentle and grease-less touch of skin
it sure had exfoliated out my dead skin cells
just love so much about these key ingredients of Mineral and Dead Sea Salt, Sunflower Seed Oil and Vitamin E
the price is $43.50 US/ $52.40 Canadian for 18 oz
