    Possibly the worst polish ever

    I received this product for free in exchange for my honest review. The colour I received was Nocturne It Up (glittery black). I was very disappointed with this nail lacquer; the formula is extremely thick and nearly impossible to work with. All the coats went on streaky and I couldn't get the polish even or opaque.

    Wouldn't Purchase

    Unfortunately, even after trying multiple times, this polish just didn't work well at all. I needed 8 full coats for even a modicum of sparkle, and even with that many it was subdued. The black isn't overly pigmented, and the sparkles are so chunky they never fully settle into the polish, and then they catch on everything. The base and top coats were alright, but nothing prevented this from chipping or flaking off. I literally applied, waited for it to dry for hours, took a shower and it was chipping by the time I'd gotten out of the shower. Zero wearability or practicality. I expect two to three coats of polish at a maximum when I do my nails, and then I anticipate at the least, three full days of wear before it chips or lifts. I wouldn't give this to someone or recommend. As one of my first experiences with CND, I would not be apt to try any other products given the performance of Nocturne it Up. I genuinely wanted to love it, but it's only redeeming feature was how it looks in the bottle.

    Horrible product! Would not recommend!

    I #gotitfree from ChickAdvisor for my honest review. I received the black with sparkles colour and was really excited to test it out! The base colour applied very well but took a long time to dry. When I went to apply the black colour it was horrible! It was a strange consistency- almost like goo. If I took most of it off my brush there was barely any colour on my nails. If I applied it like I would other nail polishes it was very messy and would almost dry as soon as it hit my nail! The top coat was very easy to apply! Because the middle polish (the colour) was so hard to apply it looked horrible on my nails! No pic was needed. I wore it for a day and it didn’t chip or anything. When I went to take it off, it was like it was glued on my nails! Half a bottle of nail polish remover later I still have some colour and still have sparkles stuck to my nails! It basically ruined my nails! I would not recommend this to anyone!!!!

    Editor's note from the CND team: "I’m sorry that you had an unsatisfactory experience with CND Creative Play. We are concerned that these bottles may have been affected by temperature during shipping. We will reach out to you directly about providing an alternative shade of Creative Play to try. Stay tuned."

    Not what I had hoped for

    I received the CND™ Creative Play™ Nail Lacquer as part of the ChickAdvisor review club. I was excited to try a new nail polish as I would consider myself a polish snob. If I’m not paying to have my nails done, I typically purchase the best of the best usually not thinking twice about spending $20+ on a bottle of polish.

    Even if the Creative Play polishes were your standard pharmacy polish on sale for $2 I wouldn’t opt for it.

    The colour was pretty awful. A shade of pink I would have chosen when I was a little girl playing dress up.

    The application brush is round not flat as most polished now offer for easier application so it doesn’t go on the greatest. The smell is extremely toxic and very strong. I had a hard time breathing to be honest while applying. It also took more then 1 coat to get a solid colour (so you couldn’t see the natural white of my nail tip).

    I used the base, colour and top coat as directed and hoped that by doing so it would wear for a longer time frame. I applied the polish on a Sunday night and by Thursday almost every nail have chipped.

    I would never purchase this product nor would I recommend it.

    I love CND shellac, but this product is garbage. I did my nails 3 hours ago and they are still SOFT and getting shmushed and messed up. Would never buy this again.

    Horrible

    I did not like this nail polish at all. Although the color is very pretty, and prepping my nails before applying the color, it has started to peel and come off the next day. I would not purchase this ever again.
