Happy Tuesday! Today I'm excited to team up with Pretty Quick to share one of their newest salons with a service you have to try!
Last week I visited Cici Nails, the shot above is what my nails look like today– exactly one week later...
If you haven't heard of VinyLux, you're not alone, I only recently discovered it when L.A. beauty expert Jodi Shays (post here) visited Chicago & insisted I try it. Unfortunately, because this particular polish formula is new to the beauty industry, finding a salon that offers it can be difficult.
Enter, Cici Nails...
While Cici Nails is known for their two types of no-chip services specific to client needs/lifestyle, they are also one of the few salons to offer VinyLux!
VinyLux is a polish formula reinvented to provide similar results to no-chip without the added UV exposure and harsh removal process. Don't get me wrong, I am no enemy to no-chip services, in fact, I depend on a durable mani, but if I can get similar results in a slightly healthier manner, why not?!
Activated by natural light, VinyLux actually strengthens with wear, while other polished breakdown. Shockingly, VinyLux is applied with no base coat, but the top coat is key, promising a week's worth of no-chip wear and only a regular polish remover when ready for a change!
While chatting with Cici Nails owner, Michael, I learned that up until VinylLux, the nail polish formula has never been been changed! While VinyLux looks like a regular polish, it's actually a liquid vinyl-like formula that adheres directly to the nail surface, sealed with it's breakthrough pro-light top coat.
Created by Creative nail Design (CND) and responsible for many of Fashion Week's top designers' shows, VinyLux offers a varity of colors that are right on trend for the season, I just happen to be borring and always opt for black (#predictable).
VinyLux is created by the inventors of Shellac nails, so again, this is not an anti shellac post, simply an alternative formula for those looking for week-long wear versus the 2-3 week commitment of gel formulas.
