This time Maestra and I reviewed CND creme base polish Raisin In The Sun and Copper Shimmer effect.
At first none of us was really into the base + effect combination. I just guessed it’s nothing new and I simply hated “old” CND polishes with their slow drying time.
But last month Maestra and I stopped at NailSpa in Ljubljana and discovered the whole new world. We played with different bases and effect like little children play with their most loved toys.
The owner of the NailSpa was kind enough to give us Colour Raisin In The Sun and Effect – Copper Shimmer to play with at home.
My greedy hands got them first. :D
I was impressed with the creme base. Brush is made with somebody like me in mind. I just can’t remember the last time the polish was so easily transfered onto my nails. I liked the fact that Raisin In The Sun is not “just” brown polish – it has this pretty reddish undertone you can see in little bit stronger light.
I butchered one of my kitchen sponges and applied Copper Shimmer effect with it.
I did plan putting Konad over the sponge, but I loved the manicure too much to alter it in any way.
Effects are not made just from shimmers, glitter or mica. Combination of different ingredients is what gives them power to give life to creme polishes.
I’m officially hooked. One of the effects is already mine and the other is on it’s way to me. I’m already plotting which polish will I use as base and show you what kind of a difference can effects make.
And here’s what Maestra has to say …
I totally agree with everything Gejba wrote. First I didn’t care about the effects either. I mean, layering isn’t anything new to the polish world. CND just used the idea and made a whole line based on it. What’s wrong with that? I’d say nothing, especially if it’s so well thought through. I mean, the effects I tried are really amazing. By combining and using creativity, you can achieve some great transformations. Gejba already showed you hers. Here comes mine …
… first Raisin in the Sun alone …
What do you think about the transformations?
