CND complete redid their polish line, removing all their old polishes and coming up with a new concept - 50 "base" colors and 15 "effect" colors. You take a base color, then layer it with an effect color. Here is an amazing blog from The Edge of Sanity where she swatched several of them. [CND Effects: The Pile Up!]
From what I've read, all the winners received CND Indian Rhubarb #528 as their color. Indian Rhubarb is listed as a Warm Opaque. It's a solid cherry tomato red that goes on smoothly in one coat. However, some winners received Copper Shimmer and some received Violet Shimmer. I received CND Violet Shimmer #558 which is listed as a Cool Sheer.
I used only the Indian Rhubarb on my middle and pinky fingers, and Violet Shimmer on my pointer and ring fingers. Here are pictures in the sun.
I also took some shade pictures - you can really see the shimmer here.
Indian Rhubarb is definitely a show stopping red - It's a little starking for me but the Violet Shimmer makes the color more wearable for me. I'm still trying to embrace starking colors. I also really would like to try more of the "effects" line. I found the colors for $4.50 and the effects for $5.50 on both TransDesign [official website] and Head2ToeBeauty [official website].
