CND Rhythm & Heat Vinylux Collection Review

CND Rhythm & Heat Vinylux

How many sunny destination–inspired nail polish collections (like this one, and this one) can I review until I crack and book myself a flight? With the new CND Rhythm & Heat Collection, I’m getting awfully close.

The collection takes inspiration from the Caribbean, with six tropical hues available in both long-wearing Vinylux weekly polish or in-salon Shellac gel polish. We have all six Vinylux shades to show you today.

The shades include Sugarcane (a pale lime green), Shells in the Sand (a light peachy), Palm Deco (a deep forest green), Mambo Beat (a vivid orange-red), Ripe Guava (a raspberry pink) and Splash of Teal (a Vinylux-only creamy teal blue). The collection also includes Shimmering Shores but it is only available in Shellac (it resembles Splash of teal but with some shimmer).

When I first got to try this polish out, I picked the odd green Sugarcane shade. I get that it’s a weird choice, especially when the classically gorgeous Mambo Beat and Ripe Guava are on the table, but its strangeness drew me in. It looked surprisingly nice against my light skin with warm undertones.

After getting our hands on the rest of the collection, it’s clear choosing a favourite is nearly impossible. Most of them look great on both tips and toes (Jessica chose Ripe Guava for her most recent pedicure) and the tropical hues are perfect for showing off as sandal season approaches.
