Do you get frustrated when your polish chips after just a few days? Are you one of those people who can’t commit to gel-polish because you want to change your color more often? If you answered yes to both of these questions, there’s an exciting new product launching on May 1 that I think you’ll love.
It’s from CND (the innovators behind Shellac power polish) and it’s called Vinylux. Billed as a Weekly Polish, Vinylux breaks the traditional nail polish formulation and is applied as two coats of color and a special Vinylux Weekly Top Coat (no base coat required).
Says CND co-founder Jan Arnold: “For more than 60 years, the nail industry has essentially used the exact same lacquer formulation. Now nails can be free from traditional polish and embraced as the ultimate fashion accessory with new Vinylux, a revolutionary weekly polish system that allows women to flaunt their unique nail styles for an entire week.”
Vinylux will launch with 62 fashion-forward colors (I’m partial to the greige tones of Svelte Suede and Rubble as well as Studio White and Black Pool). Shellac fans will be happy to know that 30 of the company’s popular Shellac shades will be available in Vinylux.
The Weekly Polish goes on just like regular polish (no UV curing) and according to the company it dries in about eight and a half minutes. The cool part is that the patent-pending Pro Light Technology in the Vinylux Weekly Top Coat is formulated to become more durable when exposed to natural light, so it actual strengthens its resistance to chips as your nails are exposed to ambient light throughout the week.
And when it comes time to change your color at the end of the week, all you have to do is simply remove the color with acetone-based polish remover (no soaking or wraps are necessary).
