Hi beauties! So excited to be able to share the CND Craft Culture Fall 2016 Vinylux Collection with you today!

The CND Craft Culture Vinylux Collection consists of 8 rustic shades, while the Shellac Collection consists of 6. I have to say that I am definitely noticing a theme forming this fall; grunge/rustic/vintage, which personally I find perfect – rough yet so chic!

As always, I’ll let you guys read the press release before we get to swatching:

“Embrace the beauty in raw imperfections, earthy colors and weathered textures with the new Craft Culture collection from CND. Hand-crafted artistry inspires a rich, one-of-a-kind palette that reflects authenticity, warmth and ruggedness.

This season, smoky red oranges, deep reds and weathered blues capture the unique character of custom made goods. These rustic tones give the Craft Culture collection a rich depth for timeless style. The nail silhouette is short and tight with industrial finishes, evoking the heritage of artisanal craftsmanship and honoring the enduring quality of artisan’s work.” CND Press Release

So what do you guys think? I love the inspiration behind this collection from denim to the patina and copper feel of aged metals. These shades mesh beautifully together and the formulas were amazing as always. Vinylux literally never disappoints me. 🙂

My picks? Patina Buckle and Leather Satchel

My tips? Start with ultra clean, bare nails – I like to use CND ScrubFresh to ensure this.

CND Vinylux nail polishes retail at $12.95 CAD at beauty salons across Canada (Chatters, Trade Secrets and Nail Polish Canada online as well). Be sure to check out CND Canada and @CNDCanada for more information and nail inspiration.
