CND Vinylux Craft Collection A/W 2016

by ,

I’m hard on my nails (or hard as nails, as Mr TBI would say). Either way, I need polishes that can withstand my heavy-handed ways. That’s why I’m a big fan of CND Vinylux.

For those of you new to Vinylux, it promises seven-day, fast-drying wear – and actually delivers on its promises unlike most nail polish brands. In fact, I will often get over a week on nails and two or three weeks on toes. It really is that great.

This season, CND has created a range of rustic, autumnal tones – the Craft Collection – with a few party favourites thrown in for good measure. My current obsession is the divine Oxblood shade (deep red).

According to CND Co-founder and Style Director Jan Arnold, the A/W 2016 nail silhouette is “short and tight with industrial finishes, evoking the heritage of artisanal craftsmanship and honoring the enduring quality of an artisan’s work”. So there you go.

In the gallery above (from left) are Brass Button (gold); Leather Satchel (bronze); Oxblood (deep red); Fern Flannel (glitter dark green); and Dark Diamonds (glitter black).

Finally, for best results, I’d recommend wearing the polishes with the CND Vinylux Top Coat (not pictured).

So ladies have you tried CND Vinylux? What are you autumn or party nail favourites?
