CND The Plum Truffle Collection Swatches!

Happy Wednesday! Hope you are all having a great day so far, I sure am! I am completely on cloud 9 right now! I found out last night that my little piece of the internet was mentioned in Instyle Magazine!! WHAT! That's nuts, as if it wasn't cool enough the issue has Gwen Stefani on the cover...for anyone who knows me you know what a giant No Doubt fan I am. I have 2 tattoos to prove it lol! Big huge thank you to Cindy for letting me know about the mention and sending me a picture! Also a big thank you to Instyle, I really can't believe a magazine as wonderful as Instyle would be talking about me! I've put the photo Cindy sent to me at the bottom of the post if you want to see! As soon as this issue is on news stands I will be buying like 15 copies!

Today I am equally excited to show you a gorgeous new duo from CND, The Plum Truffle Collection! I think this might be for Holiday...but I can't find much info about it. The set contains two new polishes, a colour and an effect!

The colour of the duo is Plum Truffle, it's a rich plummy wine creme. This is like my perfect berry color, not too red toned and not too purple toned...just perfect! The formula was outstanding...as I expected! This was almost a one coater for me, there were some bald spots so I ended up using 2 coats for full opacity. Both photos below are in the sun.



Plum Truffle Sparkle is the companion effect in the set. It's small salmon pink glitter in a clear base. The shade of pink reminds me of Deborah Lippmann's Some Enchanted Evening, I don't think they actually are the same shade but it was the first thing I thought of when I saw it! I'm really loving how this looks over Plum Truffle, it's very dainty looking. It adds just enough sparkle to be noticed but it's not in your face and overpowering. My favorite thing abut this is that it dried very smooth and glossy, I didn't use a top coat when I took the photos below and you can see how shiny it is! I used 1 coat of Plum Truffle Sparkle over Plum Truffle for the photos below, the first is in the sun and the second is in the shade.

This duo is available now, I bought mine on nailsupplies.us. It looks like it's out of stock right now (figures). If you have a store that sells CND polishes near you, you might be able to find this there! Hopefully it will be back on nailsupplies.us soon!

And here is my mention in Instyle, I still can't believe it! Another BIG thank you to Cindy for letting me know and sending me a photo! Cindy also has a beauty blog, http://hellodollface.com/...you should check it out because she is awesome :)


Have a great day everyone!
