CND Pink Wishes Colour & Effects Duo - Swatches and Review

I am always excited when CND comes out with their small little collections. There is always one polish from the Colour range which is a creme and one Effect which is a shimmer or sparkle. Their latest duo is called Pink Wishes and it is a limited edition.

CND says: "Every October, people all over the world come together to celebrate and give strength to brave women fighting breast cancer.  To embrace the spirit of unity, wear your pride on your fingers and toes with CND's Pink Wishes Colour & Effects Duo."

This is a semi-sheer milky pink. Such an innocent color. The formula is a bit thinner on this one than I am used to from CND. When applying be careful not to use too thick layers as the polish tends to "pool" around your cuticles. This is three coats on the picture.

The effect is pearlescent. It makes that hidden shimmer effect. That is why it is not very visible on my pictures but believe me, it looks much better in person. I love it.

Here is a macro shot of the bottle to give you a better idea of the effect:

I don´t wear light pink cremes much but with the effect I love the way this duo looks. I can´t wait to try the effect over other colours and over black. So tell me what you think of this nice cute little set?

  3. Hi,

    I just realised that I've been commenting on your FB page though I don't think I ever commented here, and that's kinda rude in my book. I've been reading your blog for quite a while now and I'm in awe of your hands and pics, they are wonderful!!
    I love vampy shades but sometimes, a pale pink is nice, especially if spiced up with a top-coat. I do love this combo, though I think the base colour is pretty close to OPI Step Right Up from the Femme de Cirque collection. The effect one is stunning and quite calling my name...

  4. Fairy Lélie: thank you for your comment :) it is always nice to hear from someone new. If you would like, I can make a comparison and see what shade is close to the Pink Wishes :)

  5. WOW! This is gorgeous... Really ♥ing it! Beautiful color!

  6. Beautiful colors, apart and together. I like the thoughts behind these nailpolishes

  7. Looks very natural and delicate. I like when polish gives something more than that, but I cannot stop looking at your mani, so it means I like it :)

  8. This is super pretty. It's so delicate. I really love CND. I have lots of their Effects and adore them! <3 I'm really interested to see the Pink Wishes Effect over darker shades.
