Today I have a slightly atypical post for you - a review on a topcoat! (PS: I received it in a Goodie Bag at a Nail Polish Convention that I attended. Not a review for the company, just my experience in this post.)
Here is the subject in question:
Admission: I have had this bottle, untouched, for at least a year. I am a polish blogger - when do I want a WEEK's worth of wear when I re-do my nails multiple times per week?
The answer is when I take the time to do an awesome, intricate mani that came out (almost) as well as I had hoped!
I did this mani for Mother's Day, but had to do it a few days before. I was shocked that I actually liked it and wanted it to stay intact, so I thought it was a perfect time to try out my CND Vinylux Weekly Topcoat.
Well. Not only did this not hold up for a week, it didn't make it for four HOURS before it chipped, massively, on my cinderella hand. Seriously! I waited plenty of time for it to dry and I was literally only doing normal things, like getting my makeup on for dinner. I wasn't washing dishes and I am not rough on my hands at all. Furthermore, my HK Girl stands up to chores, like washing dishes, and stays put and chip free for my entire mani.
In sum, the CND Vinylux Weekly Topcoat is a big old FLOP from me. I know that topcoats work differently on all of us, considering factors like body temp, oils in your skin, how rough you are with your hands, and more, but safe to say, this one is not for me!
Have you had a different experience with this topcoat?
Tell me about it in the comments!
