VINYLUX – The one week manicure
When CND released their non-chip/smudge instantly dry manicure in the form of Shellac the product immediately rocketed in the beauty industry and now CND are doing it all over again in 2013. VINYLUX claims to be a 1 week manicure with no chips that remains super shiny just like Shellac but however requires no base coat and removes just like nail polish. Too good to be true?
How does it work?
The VINYLUX colour polish is a self-adhering coat that clings to the nail bed allowing it to last one week without any chips. The polish will not only have a fantastic adhesion to the nail but still wont stain the nail and dries in 8 and a half minutes (averagely 5 minutes faster than regular polish) The VINYLUX top coat gives a super shiny finish, similar to Shellac, to the nails and is created from a mixture of cross-linked polymers to protect the colour coat making VINYLUX more durable. The top coat toughens over time after exposure to natural light to allow it to last an entire week. This mixture of polymers requires no UV or LED lamp curing which means that the polish can be removed using an acetone based nail polish remover such as CND’s Nourish.
How to apply VINYLUX:
1. Apply a first thin coat of VINYLUX weekly colour polish
2. Apply a second thin coat of VINYLUX weekly colour polish
3. Paint a final coat of VINYLUC weekly top coat
4. Leave 8 minutes 30 seconds to dry.
Surely there’s nothing wrong with a longer lasting chip free polish right?
- It last an entire week
- Dries 5 minutes quicker than regular nail polish
- Super shiny
- Comes in 62 trendy colours
- Matches every Shellac colour, so VINYLUX is perfect for topping up your Shellac manicure at home
- Easy/quick to remove
- Perfect for the person who rushes around and doesn’t have time to visit the local salon
- Doesn’t stain or yellow the nails
- Requires no base coat
I’ve noticed one major disadvantage especially for salons and business profit
- Clients can purchase the polish and use it at home – surely this means clients wont need to visit the salon as they can quickly paint their own nails at home on a Sunday night whilst watching Coronation Street. The only reason why so many lucky ladies have Shellac on their nails by professional therapists is because they’re not able to buy it to use at home. Will VINYLUX eliminate all of the Shellac clients who pay valuable money for good quality nails?
VINYLUX will be released on the 28th and 29th April 2013 at The Event and will be available to purchase from May 2013. Keep an eye out on my review as soon as I get a hold on these.
