CND Flirtation and Spa Collection Premiers at Onyx Aesthetics

Testing Out The New CND Beauty Collections

Last fall I discovered Onyx Aesthetics Studio at 425 Abbott Street in Gastown and was thrilled (yes nails thrill me!) to return for the unvailing of a new collection of my favourite nail polish brand, CND.

CND has the Shellac Brand, which tend to last about 2 weeks and the home Vinylux weekly polish. If you are in the salon there’s no reason not to get the Shellac, especially since you can take it off a home if you are patient with their nail polish removal system. This does takes patience, and I have failed at this several times and chewed off my nails and therefor damaged them. Don’t be a fool like me and your nails won’t get damaged. Pictured above is one of the fall colours, with some silver gift wrapping in celebration of the upcoming holiday season.

The ladies at Onyx are amaze and it’s a pleasure to sit still for the brief time it takesto paint and decorate my nails. I actually relax and am reluctant to leave even when I’m done.  They use all CND products and are now stocked up with the new Flirtation Collection as well as the Spa 4-step Collection of soaks, scrubs, masques and lotions.

I loved the Bright Citron fragrence best, but the Gardenia, and Cucumber smell divine as well. I’m using the scrub in the shower and my skin is feeling ultra-smooth (please don’t picture that).

I was good this time and went back to the salon and had my polish removed and changed with special Wine Festival theme nail art. Some say the Italian Wines were the star of the show at this year’s festival, others were pretty impressed with these nails.
