CND Sweet and Sugar Sparkle

Ooooh I'm still so excited that I have these two polishes that I can hardly stand it! CND puts out limited edition sets sometimes and this spring they did a polish and effects set called "The Look" Sweet and Sugar Sparkle. I missed out on them while they were "in season" and alas thought I was doomed to roam the earth forever wanting. Then my fab friend Miss PolishPauper said she'd love to swap them with me and I positively JUMPED at the chance! Thanks again sweetie :)
Sweet is a gorgeous pink crème, bright and cheerful, warm toned. I wore it in two coats.  It was surprisingly a slightly streaky versus the other CND colors I've worn before, unfortunately.  But the color is really flattering; I like my pinks :)
On to the shining star of the mani, Sugar Sparkle! This "effects" topcoat is a clear base swimming with silvery/white/clear flakes that are irregularly shaped and look almost like shattered ice. It really is what I see in my mind's eye when I hear the words "sugar sparkle". This is only one coat of SS over Sweet, maybe I'll do two or three next time to really pump up the bling :)  The sparkle chunks did dry a bit...hmm...flatter (?) than I expected, but oh well, it still dazzles!!
I can't wait to see what CND comes out with next. Their "Night Factory" set that came out this fall (teal sparkle and urban oasis) was uber sexi! I didn't get their silver and gold sparkling glitter topcoats for the winter, but I've heard great things about them. I am crossing my fingers for more fab-u-lous effects, they make my heart go pitty-pat!
