A lovely smelling oil! I used this for a long time but didn't notice too much of a difference in my nails and cuticles. I did refill the bottle with pure jojoba oil so I guess it wasn't a total waste.

First time I had a manicure done with Shellac in 2008 or 2009. It lasted for three days before it started separates from my nails. Half of it would be attached while the other half would be hanging off. After that experience, I thought I'd never get a gel manicure and I will definitely never try a Shellac again. Long story short in 2011 I was back to gels. Japanese pro gels that really lasts.It's impossible to find those in American salons, so my relocation from Asia left me no choice but to try a Shellac again. After two years of on-off relationships with Shellac, I must say we can't be friends. It doesn't separate from my nails so badly as nearly 10 years ago, I guess formula has changed since then, but I have bad looking polish cracks in 7 to 10 days, and by day number 12 or 14th Shellac doesn't want to be fully attached to my nail plates. My manicure doesn't look half as good as it looked with Japanese Presto. I used to have thinner gel coats, more opaque colors and way longer lasting manicures. For a week of flawless nails, I rather use a polish than to soak my hands in acetone for 15 minutes.

Purple Purple is my first CND polish. The name is misleading, as I bought it thinking it was a metallic duo chrome polish, shiftiting from blue to purple. However, on the nail, I couldn't catch any purple, it just looked like a metallic blue polish. The only time it looked purple was on a cotton wool pad when I went to remove it. So, this polish was not what I expected, but very pretty in its own right (I especially liked it topped with INM Northern Lights - light, holo top coat).The brush is very similar to Essie polishes - very thin. I have a wide nail bed, so I prefer wider brushes. I must confess that I didn't enjoy working with this polish. I found the formula a little tricky, but this could be the metallic finish, which is often more difficult to apply. Also, by the end of day 2, I had a couple of tiny chips. On the positive side, this polish only needs 2 coats (possibly 1, if your application is better than mine) and it dries fast.For the reasons mentioned above I would not be repurchasing Purple Purple, but I wasn't put off trying other Vinylux polishes.

I am a nail tech, and a client actually recommended this polish to me. She swore by it, so I decided to try it out. I bought 2 shades "Negligee" which is a seer iridescent pink and "Masquerade", which is a very deep reddish/purple. I used negligee first. When I say it's sheer, I mean VERY sheer. It would be a perfect base for a french manicure, but I wanted a little more coverage, so I think I ended up using 3-4 coats and finishing with the top coat. The color was very pretty. I was a little hesitant to go without a base coat, as it's SO ingrained in me as a nail tech to ALWAYS use one, but I wanted to test this out the way it was recommended to be used, which is why I chose the light color. The polish went on beautifully, dried relatively quickly, and added a nice hard shell to my nails. Even with the extra coats it didn't look sloppy, bumpy, or take too long to dry. The polish was still perfectly intact 5 days later when I removed it (because I had a manicure appointment). There were no chips, not even any wear at the free edge, which is always my problem. In the past I have used the sally Hansen's no light gel polish, and I liked that, but this is SO much better. It's a neater-to-apply formula, it lasts twice as long, and it doesn't crack, like the Sally Hansen. If you want a Gel-like manicure without the expense or hassle of soaking it off, this is the product for you.

Awesome top coat! Super shiny and stays shiny until you take it off. Fast drier bc I never need drying drops with it. The best thing is it does not smear nail art, specifically stamping nail art. Glad I finally bought this and I wish I had of tried this years ago bc I would have saved so much time and money on finding the perfect tc. Well be a repeat purchaser for sure.
