All about: VINYLUX - perfect polish with the wear of a gel


CND seriously revolutionised the nail salon industry when they brought Shellac into the world a couple of years ago, a brand name that’s now synonymous with seriously hot shades and a picture perfect result that lasts. When I started getting gel/polish hybrid manicures and pedicures I quickly became hooked, and now CND are poised to do it again with a new product called VINYLUX.
VINYLUX is what they are calling a “Weekly Nail Polish” that uses no base coat and a topcoat that gets more durable with natural light exposure. Did you get that last bit? As in, technology that gives long lasting, high gloss wear with no UV/LED exposure and it removes like regular nail polish so they whole shebang can take place at home?
I was sold straight away, but wanted to know - how the hell does it work? VINYLUX Weekly Polish comes with a Weekly Top Coat, they are a system that is uniquely designed to work together. Exposure to natural light secures the patent-pending ProLight technology, creating an enduring, long-lasting polish. ProLight creates a powerful network of cross-linked polymer bonds that build resistance to chips and enhance durability with exposure to natural light over time. Clever stuff.
So unlike gel polishes, you can change it when you want to, and unlike regular nail polish, not because you have to. It’s easy to use as well, just apply two thin coats of VINYLUX Weekly Polish and then one coat of VINYLUX Weekly Top Coat. Around eight and a half minutes later you are totally good to go. This top coat then creates an outer shield that protects your manicure from scratching, denting, chipping and dulling for up to a week of wear (I’ve had longer), way longer on your toes.
According to the company VINYLUX is best removed with CND Shellac Nourishing Remover or Acetone, and using quality cuticle oil like SolarOil will enhance wearability because it improves the health of the nail and keep everything looking tidy and sleek.
I’ve been using the shade Fedora (above) for a while now and have to say that the results are seriously good. And after having gel/polish hybrid products on my fingers and toes for well over a year now it is a joy to be able to take a break from the salon visits - and the natural nail damage - and have a play with colour all on my own.
VINYLUX is launching with 62 colours too, and I reckon one will definitely not be enough!
For a stockist near you have a peep here.
