One of the things I love most about CND’s seasonal collections is that they’re not always expect for the season. Most of us think pastel when it comes to spring nails but CND Vinylux’s Art Vandal collection is instead inspired by the self-expression of art. In the eight shades of the collection, there’s only one that can be considered pastel, and I’m definitely ok with that. All of the swatches are two coats, followed by the Vinylux top coat.
Tutti Fruitti
CND Vinylux Tutti Frutti Swatch
Tutti Frutti is a shimmery bright pink that’s gorgeous in the sunlight.┬áThis one will be great for summer.
Irreverent Rose
CND Vinylux Irreverent Rose Swatch
I was surprised by how much I loved the pink shades in this collection and Irreverent Rose is a really pretty dark rose creme.
Mauve Maverick
CND Vinylux Mauve Maverick Swatch
Mauve Maverick is not the kind of shade I’d normally pick up and the name is really misleading (it leans more pink than mauve) but this is my favourite shade of the collection. The formula was amazing and it’s just so pretty.
Untitled Bronze
CND Vinylux Untitled Bronze Swatch - Hard to take off
Untitled Bronze on the other hand was my least favourite. A bronze shimmer with lots of pink in it, it was a formula that never seemed to smooth out. And all the glitter in it made it almost impossible to remove. I know I can’t like every single Vinylux shade but I’m always surprised when I don’t.
Art Basil
CND Vinylux Art Basil Swatch
Art Basil is one of the more unusual shades in the collection. A green/teal shimmer, it really stands out against all the other green polishes I own. It’s a gorgeous shade for spring.
Sienna Scribble
CND Vinylux Sienna Scribble Swatch
Sienna Scribble is a metallic copper and it’s basically the exact opposite of Untitled Bronze. It’s smooth, the colour is gorgeous and it wore really well.
Magenta Mischief
CND Vinylux Magenta Mischief Swatch - Could've been 1 coat
There’s something so special about Magenta Mischief, in the sunlight you can see hints of a blue violet undertone within the magenta shimmer.I could’ve gotten away with one coat of this one but went with two to really show it off.
Digi-Teal
CND Vinylux Digi-Teal Swatch
This bright blue creme got me the most compliments of the whole collection. It’s stunning in person and while it might not be a pastel, it definitely leans spring.

The whole Art Vandal collection is beyond gorgeous and I’m going to be using almost the whole collection quite a bit. We already have the summer Vinylux Flirtations collection and it’s just as pretty, that review is coming soon.
