I reviewed the Anna CND Effect along with the Jason Wu collection but hadn’t done it over the six colors like I usually do. I was delayed with swatching the newer effects because of something that hadn’t happened to me before. When I pulled out my base CND colors to start swatching the new effects, I realized that almost every one of them had suffered from extreme evaporation. Although irritating, this in itself was not an obstacle that couldn’t be oversome with a little thinner. But Asphalt was a different story. It had evaporated to a sticky ball. Very irritating. However, I’ve resuscitated worse. Not this time. Asphalt refused the polish thinner with rebellion. I could not revive the grey polish even over the course of a week so was forced to buy a new one. Very, very irritating. Anyone else experience inordinate evaporation with their CNDs?
As I stated previously, the Anna effect did absolutely nothing for me. It’s supposed to be an effect that produces a matte and feathered look. It reminds me of sheet marks. Some might find it endearingly unique, but I would not purposely apply this effect and then go out in public. To me, it looks like a mani gone wrong.
The full CND Effects Line-up is here. I’ll add this week’s pics to the pile-up at a later date.
