Last month, I was introduced to the new CND Spring 2016 Art Vandal Collection. It boasts 60s and 70s vibe like the Ralph Bakshi’s mind-blowing animation in his landmark animated feature, “Heavy Traffic.” The spring nail is anything but precious. Don’t be afraid to get off the grid and leave your mark with a slightly squared, active length and scribbly graffiti graphics.
Spring 2016 by channeling hard, hot gorgeous of parking-lot florals with shockwaves of brilliant mauve, fuchsia and magenta tones making a concrete style statement. Synthetic greens the color of Benjamins square off with the scorch of shocking pinks. Awesomely aquatic turquoise teal infused with silver glitters, pink shimmers, white polka-dots, or dusting of blue and violet glaze to blaze radioactive smog over the metro skyline.

In two coats, this warm rose nail polish applies like a dream! It’s not very unique, but it feels like a nice shake up from a typical pink.
Untitled Bronze has a micro silver shimmers and larger red sparkles packed into what feels like a mix between rose gold and copper. The formulation is a bit tricky, but worth the effort.
Art Basil is a teal green with flecks and soft gold. The formulation applies well, but it requires about 3 thin coats.
A pretty magenta filled with a violet sheen with a pigmented formulation.I really loved this one because it pops against my skin!
As the name suggests, this is a sienna hue with a frosty shimmer. I didn’t think it would work with my skin tone but it pairs especially well with glitter top coats.
A beautiful and bright sky blue, however it has shimmers which are nearly impossible to spot.
A thick soft lavender pink cream nail polish with opaque coverage and not too difficult to work with, either.
Tutti Frutti has a pretty lavender shine and it reminds me a lot of a nail polish from Revlon.
A couple of these go on matte initially, but with they all have a glossy finish with the Vinylux Weekly Top Coat. Untitled bronze was textured and had the most inconsistent formulation out of the rest in this collection. Overall, and per usual, I had little to no difficulty getting full opaque coverage with 2-3 coats of all these nail polishes. Magenta Mischief was a stands out for me.
