CND Raisin In The Sun & Jade Sparkle

It's no secret at this point that I love CND. Their polishes are amazing and opaque. Their effects can change the look of a polish. And their top coats, base coats, and cuticle products work fabulously.
When I saw these on sale at a local beauty supply, I snatched them up.
Raisin In The Sun and Jade Sparkle.

This is 2 coats of Raisin In The Sun.

Raisin In The Sun is an opaque, shiny, red based brown creme.

It does seem a shade darker on the nail than it is in the bottle.

It's incredibly opaque.

This is 1 coat of Jade Sparkle over Raisin In The Sun. Isn't that amazing?

Jade Sparkle is a green shimmer polish that changed the look of Raisin In The Sun.

I'm a huge fan of the effect. I love that you can change the way a polish looks with just one coat.

I think this polish pulls more green on other colors. Here, it looks a bit more yellow.

As always, the CND brush rocks and the wear on this was great!

Don't forget my Franken FAQ is tomorrow!


  1. wow, this looks completely like a different polish with the effects! really pretty either way but I'm a sucker for shiny :)

  2. Oh how pretty!! It kinda of reminds me of White Cap but this one has green shimmer. =)

  3. Such a pretty color, and the effect is gorgeous! I've never seen CND polishes around where i am, but if i do i'll definitely snag a few now!

  4. i'm loving raisin in the sun! its so nice

  5. WOW! Raisin in the Sun is perfect. I love brown cremes. I am going to have to play with my teal sparkle more, it is amazing how the effects totally change a polish.

  6. Simply fabulous! I love all these lovely CND effects polishes, my goal is to collect them all one day. It's amazing how they can transform any polish!

  7. Both are lovely. Then put them together. BLAMMO! Fabulousity.
