NOTD: Cake Pop Nails

Hi Bellas,


Time for another installment on my nails of the week!  I finally got in my order of CND Vinylux polish and top coat.  I picked out a pale pink that reminds me of one of my favorites - OPI Mod about you.  Let's take a look and see how well I was able to rock this weekly polish.

I ordered the CND Vinylux Top Coat and Weekly Polish from Amazon.  You have to pair this specific top coat with one of their polishes or the system won't work.
I will say, application wasn't as easy as I hoped.  I'm not sure if this nail polish I got was old, but it was a little thicky and clumpy to apply.  I might try to order another color just to see...i'm thinking something nice for Fall.  I tried really hard to get the base of my cuticles nice and neat by going around the edges with an eyeshadow brushed dipped in acetone.  
Here is the polish after a week.  Excuse the bad lighting.  Notice how the tips are hardly worn but it's peeling at the base?  That's due to my overzealousness with the nail polish remover...I think I removed part of the base coat.  Lesson learned!
I think the next time I try the CND Vinylux I'm going to get it down in a nail salon.  It's about time for a manicure anyhow.  Stay tuned for next week's nail post where I give Essie Nail stickers a shot!

Add a few drops of nail polish thinner to it and shake it up. It will fix the clumping issue. You can get it at Sally's.
