Want polish that truly lasts a week long? This no fuss, easy application polish by CND is long-lasting, chip resistant and can easily be changed when the week is up!

The one thing women want when it comes to nail polish is for it to be long-lasting. Unless you’re investing in a fabulous shellac or gel mani from your favourite manicurist, regular polish only lasts a couple of days at best.

I love a good shellac/gel manicure like anyone else. It lasts up to two weeks and has no dry time afterwards. The only set back is that you have to live with that colour for weeks and removing the UV-cured polish is a process.

So what’s the happy  medium? CND, who produces some of the best shellac polishes on the market, is now introducing a new range of polishes with their VINYLUX Weekly Polish System— a two step process that is fast drying (about eight minutes, half the time of regular polish), offers week-long wear, is easily removed.

What makes it so innovative? The breakthrough VINYLUX system system includes a self-adhering Color Coat that eliminates the need for Base Coat (non-yellowing, so don’t worry about nail discolouration), and a Top Coat with  “ProLight Technology”— a breakthrough technology developed by CND that enhances durability with exposure to natural light. Yes, your polish will strengthen over time.

“For more than 60 years the nail industry has essentially used the exact same lacquer formulation,” says CND Co-founder Jan Arnold. “Now nails can be free from traditional polish and embraced as the ultimate fashion accessory with new VINYLUX, a revolutionary weekly polish system that allows women to flaunt their unique nail styles for an entire week.”

How to get a VINYLUX Mani at home:

1. Apply two thin coats of VINYLUX Weekly Polish, a self-adhering Color Coat that delivers superior adhesion.

2. Apply one coat of VINYLUX Weekly Top Coat—a durable and powerful network of cross-linked polymer bonds that build resistance to chips, prevent yellowing and protect the Color Coat

VINYLUX removes easily with an acetone-based polish remover in just one minute.
