CND Vinylux Boho Spirit 2018 Collection

CND Vinylux Boho Spirit Summer 2018 Shades

In case you’re not familiar with this brand, CND VINYLUX Weekly Polish is a unique two-part system, a self-adhering Colour Coat with a built-in base coat and a superior Top Coat, which gives you seven-day chip-free wear. I have previously reviewed their Nude Collection which I still love & recently wore to my brother’s wedding.

There are four gorgeous shades in the new Vinylux Boho Spirit Summer Collection. I have three of them to try which is exciting. I’m missing the shade Offbeat which is a gorgeous bright coral pink & I might just have to get my hands on this shade to complete the collection. So this paired down 4 piece Summer collection covers all the bases (well I think so).

Vinylux Gypsy Boho Nail Polish 2018

Offbeat – a bright coral cream

Uninhibited – a rich salmon cream

Vagabond – a pale sandy yellow

Gypsy – a tangerine dream


This is the shade I have been wearing the most. It applies so well and is opaque in one coat but I do like to apply two just so the colour is more intense and rich. Orange is one of my favourite shades for Summer and I love how well this polish lasts on both my fingers & toes. It’s a WOW shade for sure and one I know will see me through the Summer.

NEW Vinylux long wear nail polish


This salmon pinky peach shade gives you a lovely light wash of colour.  It looks stunning on both fingers and toes and its subtle colour looks so sophisticated and is the perfect everyday Summer shade. It is a pretty creme finish.


I wasn’t at all excited about this shade at first and thought it looked a little flat, dull in the bottle but I just love it on my toes. It’s not a bold yellow but a creme pale sandy yellow and it isn’t a WOW shade but it is very much a pretty shade. Again it’s perfect if you have a tan and is an easy colour to wear.

Superior shine

The Vinylux Weekly polish Top Coat is incredible, it gives a high shine finish and the quality looks as good as a professional nail salon but best of all my nail polish lasted chip-free for almost the 7 days. This is no mean feat as I work with my hands crafting & they usually get scuffed so easily, but this topcoat meant my manicure remained intact with no unsightly chips for 6 solid days. I was very, very impressed. The high shine finish didn’t dull either. This topcoat is a serious winner and I am going to use it on top of all my manicures from now on.Vinylux Summer Boho Spirit Collection

So if you’re looking for that perfect polish so you can wear all the Summer sandals then I highly recommend checking out this Boho Spirit Collection from CND Vinylux & let me know if you get your hands on the pink (Offbeat) shade – I think this would look gorgeous with a sunkissed tan.

Vinylux™ – weekly, chip-resistant wear, fast-drying, two-step application, brilliant shine which lasts without the need for a base coat. Increased durability with natural light.

Rimmel Super Gel Beach Ready Collection* 

One thing I love about the warmer weather is wearing open toe shoes / sandals and having my toes painted a cute, fun Summery shade. Well it looks like Rimmel have me covered in that department. Their latest release are 5 vibrant Summer appropriate nail polishes quite aptly named the Beach Ready Collection.

Rimmel have had quite a few new product releases this year and for me many of them just haven’t lived up to the hype but I have been seriously enjoying these new Super Gel nail polishes. I do enjoy having my nails professionally done but like most people this just isn’t always possible and it can get very expensive so I’m always excited to try gel effect polishes especially when you don’t need to use a UV lamp to achieve that ultra glossy, long wearing mani. The new Super Gel polishes promise up to 14 day wear, chip resistant & no UV lamp needed.

Rimmel Super Gel Nail Polish

All 5 shades needed to coats but that made the colour very vibrant and opaque. No streaks and the formula was easy to work with too. I would say that I didn’t get 14 day wear on my fingers but I did get 10 days on my toes. I opted for the Pink – Sun Fun Daze shade and it was super pretty and had a glossy glossy finish but the wear time just wasn’t fantastic.

I wouldn’t recommend these if you needed to rely on your manicure lasting for 2 weeks but the Super Gel range have some beautiful shades and as a nail polish they apply well too. I have to say I’m looking forward to using the bright Orange – Coral Queen shade on my toes it will look so cute at the beach.
