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.

Mavala Nail Polish

These polishes come in the sweetest little 5ml bottles, the brush is quite long and fairly thick I found the polish easy to apply. For the first four polishes two coats made the colour opaque and streak free but with the Silver Chrome & Pink Gold shades, I’d say apply 3 coats for the best coverage. This collection does finish glossy but I did apply my beloved Orly Top Coat to prolong my manicure & I got 6 days without chipping whilst wearing the Copper Violet Shade.

Mavala Nail Polish

There is a lot going on with this collection in a good, it is unusual and the colours have a real pop to them. Mavala polishes are very good value for money at only £4.75 each. Mavala pride themselves on being free from harmful ingredients such as parabens, formaldehyde, toluene, camphor, cellophane, animal ingredients and heavy metal.

Which is your favourite colour from the collection? I instantly fell in love with the Copper Violet shade, its such a deep rich colour, I can’t stop looking at it when it’s on my nails. I also predict that the Rose Gold shade will be a big hit.  

Mavala Nail Polish is available in John Lewis, Mavala website and larger Boots stores at £4.75 each.
