CND Pink Wishes Colour And Effects Nail Polish Duo Pictures And Review

Obsessed.  I am obsessed with these Creative Nail Design Colour & Effects Duos.  I'm pretty sure they could put out dirt in (dual) bottles and I would be on the hunt, seeking them out.  I think the hunt for these is really my favorite part.  They are never easy to find and not consistent (meaning, the store I got my last duo at suddenly has no idea what I am talking about when I come in looking for the newest one).   I found the newest one, Pink Wishes, today at my beauty supply and I squealed.  I told the woman behind the counter that she made my day and she replied, "that's all it takes?".  Yes.  Yes it is.  I am simple.

This duo was created in honor of breast cancer awareness month, coming in October:

 "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"

The Pink Wishes Colour is a cool opaque creme polish.  I was so sure this would be a super streakfest, but it totally evened out in 2 coats:

Pink Wishes reminds me of Essie's Fiji, which was a total P.I.T.A to apply.  You get the cool pink tone with none of the crappy application:
FLASHBACK: This was Fiji.  Super  pretty but super THICK and annoying!
Then I did one coat of the Pink Wishes Pearl Effect on top:

It's been a bit since I've included my "Jeff Says" segment to a post (the part where I ask my husband what he thinks of my nail color).  He offered me this insight this morning (unprovoked, I might add :) :

Jeff says: "Your nails remind me of cake frosting."

Yay!  This may be similar to other polishes and topcoat effects in my arsenal, but I will definitely get much use out of this set.  The formulas are perfect!

Thoughts on this duo?  Do you ever find the "hunt" for an elusive product just as rewarding as the actual product itself?


  1. So girley and sweet. Think about a black lace Konad on the tips of this. I don't wear pink normally but this really is pretty. Love it on you!

  2. Thanks Nina! Would you believe I do not own a Konad yet? I need to get on that ASAP....great suggestion!

  3. I'm right there with Jeff. That colour does look like frosting on your nails! :D What a sweet and soft shade. Looks nice on you!
