CND Effects review

I recieved some samples from CND for review:
Inkwell-A deep blackened Blue creme
Silver chrome- Metallic silver
Effects copper shimmer-Sheer Milky white with tons of copper shimmer
Super Matte top coat

I decided to get a little creative.
I did 2 coats of Inkwell
sponged Silver chrome at the free edge
1 coat of Effects Copper shimmer
1 coat of Effects Scarlet shimmer (I already had this)

I love how it gave it a purple tone

Here you can see the copper shimmer

Inkwell applied like a dream, opaque in two very thin coats and the CND brush is my new girlfriend!
Their brush is The bees knees, not too wide but wider than your standard brush, flat and just the right shape to give an excellent and easy application.
Silver Chrome is opaque in one coat, not streaky like most metallics and super sparkly.
The effects shimmers are fabulous, they do not dull or cover the color beneath but add amazing shimmer and that lit within look.
Super Matte top coat is not like your traditional matte top coat. It does not give the flat matte feel like most but it does add an interesting matte like apearance. I have to play with it more.

Now I want the rest of the effects and more CND colors! Did I mention that their brush is perfection?
