CND - Jason Wu Collection - "Sophia"

Hey, ladies (and maybe gents, too!)! Sorry I've been a little M.I.A for the last few days. I've been meaning to give myself a mani (I've been going 3 days without polish on my nails! Such a sin!), but haven't had the time. Finally, I got around to painting my nails tonight! Every time I paint my nails, I'm reminded how much fun it is, and how much the finished product brings me joy!

Tonight's color choice is from the newest line from CND, the limited edition Jason Wu Collection.  The Jason Wu Collection became available on May 1st and includes four staple colors: "Miss Wu" (a limestone gray), "Brigitte" (a dirty rose), "Veronica" (a sexy, beet red), and my choice for tonight's mani color - "Sophia" (a dark mushroom). Also included in the set is a CND Effect top coat named "Anna", which contains silk fragments to provide depth and texture, much like a tweed material finish.

I recently read on "All Lacquered Up's" website, that Michelle (the author of the blog) feels that, "CND has one of the best formulas on the market. Their polishes are extremely pigmented and smooth. The lacquer glides on the nail with ease in three simple strokes, requires only two coats and dries to a perfect, even finish." Thank you, Michelle, for taking the words right out of my mouth! I couldn't agree more! CND has definitely become one of my favorite brands of polish because of it's high-quality formula, reasonable price, availability (at Beauty Brands!) and color selection. 

Ladies, I'd like to introduce you to my new friend, "Sophia":

OPI Chip Skip
1 coat of OPI Nail Envy, Original Formula
1 coat of Essie's "Fill The Gap" 
2 coats of CND's "Sophia"
2 coats of China Glaze Fast Forward Top Coat

The Jason Wu Collection is available for purchase in salons and via www.cnd.com. The suggested retail price for this set is $47. The collection will be sold globally while supplies last.
