I got these beauties quite some time ago. These are all oldies but goodies. They are from a CND‘s discontinued line. You all of course know by now about their new line with 50 creme shades and 15 effect. But I won’t babble about the new line today. I’d like to show you three really lovely shades today. The names are: Black Platinum, Knight’s Armor and Eskimo Kiss.

CND - Black Platinum, Knight's Armor, Eskimo Kiss

All have frosty metallic finish. That means that the brush strokes are visible. I’d recommend careful application and straight strokes with these. But brush strokes aren’t so visible that they would bother me. Otherwise, I didn’t have any application issues.

I’m going to write some more about Eskimo Kiss, which surprised me the most. I thought, it would be sheer, but it’s really not. It’s quite the opposite, it almost needs only one coat to be totally opaque. I did two coats, just to be sure.

From the pictures you can see, that Eskimo Kiss is a little duo-chrome. It shifts between silvery-white and pinky-peach shade. It’s a wonderful shade and works well with Konad as well!

  1. DESPERATELY seeking bottles—want to hoard as many as I can—of Knight’s Armor (discontinued). If anyone knows where/how I can get it, PLEASE reply! Thanks and Happy New Year!!!

  2. :nails: Love the Konaded nails. I’m not to fond of frosty white nails. Good that you can use this for Konad. I came across a website GoIndulge, I think that was it. They have the old CND polishes for $3 each. I didn’t notice if they shipped internationally. Sorry I didn’t think to check. I think TransDesign still has plenty of the older shades.

  3. You’re right. Eskimo Kiss is special and a rare white I’d wear. I love almost every (old) CND polish I have, but the dry time is killing me. I mean, I figured out what they need to dry, but they really need special treatment and I’m not a huge fan of that. I hope the new line is better. I have to try them out.

  4. It’s rare to see a whte shade that’s not plain white and opaque in one coat! A great find :)
    You did a very pretty konadicure with it too. I love that Ciate paintpot color :wub:
