I realized that I use this color a lot but have never dedicated a post to it. CND colour Brilliant White is a core color - a nice bright white. For this, I used a base of CND Stickey, 2 coats of polish and a top of OPI Top Coat (it's all I could find at the moment).
Okay, so ignore the huge nick in my middle finger. I bumped it right when I walked out the door. Now I've had my bottle for quite some time, so I'm not sure if the formula has been affected, but I noticed that this color was a bit patchy for me. Not what you'd hope, but pretty typical for whites.
Here in the shade, the color looks a bit dusty? I think it's just the reflection of the light off my roof that I was shooting under. It's still a good base but I have to layer something over it to feel better.
Oh the flash. It tells how streaky this color is, and uneven - patchy as I explained before. I still love it and am glad I have it, but I'm still on the search for a "perfect" one coat white. :]
CND is available for $9 per colour, and $11 per effect and you can find locations to buy here.
TransDesign and Head2ToeBeauty has the colours for $4.50 and effects for $5.50.
