CND 2018 Boho Summer collection

CND Boho Summer 2018 nail polish
It's a little late to be posting about a summer collection, but with the weather so gray and dreary right now, maybe a bit of brightness couldn't hurt? The Boho Spirit collection from CND this summer hit just the right mix of brights and subtler shades for me. Available in both long-wear Vinylux and Shellac (CND's gel range), there's Offbeat (bright magenta), Uninhibited (pinky peach), Gypsy (orange), and Vagabond (muted pale yellow).

Gypsy's orange is a bright and true orange, bordering on almost neon. This shade fits in equally as well in a cheerful summer mani as it would in a fall look. It's the kind of brightness that makes cameras photograph kind of wonky (the below picture is a bit more accurate imo).

This was a surprise favourite for me and I wore Gypsy for almost a week (!!!) which is shocking for me since I often change out polish by day 3 or 4. I was really impressed by how well the polish, paired with the Vinylux top coat, held up, as it didn't chip at all!

Despite its name, Uninhibited is a rather demure pinky peach. It's slightly pinker and more muted than China Glaze Peachy Keen or Essie Serial Shopper. This was my other favourite in the collection.

Aside from the chip resistant, long wear, I also really like the CND brush. It's wide but not too dense (i.e. doesn't 'hold' too much polish), and the slight curve cut into the brush fits the curve of my cuticles perfectly. Of all nail polish brands, this is one of my favourite brushes.

I am certain I swatched Offbeat and Vagabond but seem to have lost the photos :(  Offbeat is a deep pink, deeper and warmer than e.l.f. Bubble Gum Pink or Essie Perfect Mate. Vagabond was a muted, buttery yellow, like a slightly deeper version of Zoya Jacqueline or CND Honey Darlin'.

Overall I really liked this collection - all polishes applied well (though if I had to choose a problem child, Vagabond, like a typical yellow polish, requires you to be just a little more careful) and the mix of shades gave good summer vibes without being screaming neon.

Tell me your favourite summer shades to brighten up my day!
