Hand and Body Essentials from Colour and Effects


Manicures and pedicures can sometimes seem luxurious when you have children. There are often days that I wish I could just sit and have someone massage my hands and feet and paint them in the prettiest colors, BUT the reality is I often don'??t have the free time for something that isn'??t a necessity.

Since I do love to add a nice pop of color to my nails and feet I have been giving myself my own mani'??s and pedi'??s at home with a collection of vivid and playful colors from Colour & Effects.

This full-spectrum palate features 50 colors, including sheer, semi-sheer and opaque neutrals, pinks, darks and brights as well as three pure chromes in gold, silver and cooper! The line also includes 15 dazzling effects in sheer hues of three textures '?? pearl, shimmer and sparkle '?? to accessorize crème polish or to wear it alone.

Personally, I loved the rich colors that applied effortlessly in two coats. It'??s fast drying formula (less than two minutes) was also much-appreciated and applied beautifully '?? much like a professional manicure due to its state-of-the-art brush that features a clear, triangular-shaped nylon brush for a flawless application.

It is also really easy to use '?? turn the bottle upside down and then roll it between your palms to blend.

I then used the CND lotion featuring scents like Dark Bergamot, Magnolia & Mandarin and Fresh Day Lily that nourished my hands and nails while also providing a light and invigorating scent.

The line also includes a formula called Solaroil, a blend of four naturally light oils that penetrate the skin'??s pores while sealing in moisture. These oils '?? jojoba, vitamin E, Rice Bran and Sweet Almond '?? work together to help prevent the nail plate and cuticle from getting dry and brittle as well as tighten the cuticle to help prevent hangnails. I loved using this lightweight formula that enriched my skin as it promoted healthy nail growth. I loved how gave a fresh and healthy look to my nails that I massaged into the nail bed. It can also be applied to the knees, elbows, and feet for all-over body moisturizers.

While making it to the salon may require some work, it is now easy than ever to get salon-quality manicures at home with the high quality and long-lasting polishes from CND.
