CND Perfectly Bare The Look Spring/Summer 2011 Swatches

I think this set is called Perfectly Bare but it is CND The Look Spring/Summer 2011 offering. I saw it on Transdesign and since I really like CND Effects I bought it. I'm such a sucker. It's a set of two polishes - Perfectly Bare creme (Colour) and Perfectly Bare Shimmer (Effects). Wonderful formula on both which I have become accustomed to when it comes to CND. I don't hate it and I don't love it. I'm usually not a fan of "soft" colors and this is a "soft" set. I'm on the fence about it but I can't see reaching for it but only because of the colors and not because of the formula. Color taste is so subjective.

Perfectly Bare is a peach/nude creme. It's on the peach and warm side which is not very flattering on me. If you are looking for a peach nude this is worth looking into. Two coats and smooth with no problems. I did give Seche another try which explains the shrinkage on the sides.

Perfectly Bare Shimmer is a peachy/pink shimmer with little silver flecks. It gives the creme polish a very subtle shimmer and pearl effect. The really do go well together.

Bare Shimmer Effects over black and on bare nail.

Thanks for posting this, I was just thinking about adding it to my cart. I was hoping the effect had a clear base, but I might pass on it now. Thanks!!

I really like the shimmer over the almost makes the black look olive green. I really wanted this color too...I'm such a sucker for neutrals, but then I get them and never like them as much as I think I will! :(
