Creative Play is CND’s latest line of nail polish to hit the salon scene with 80 bold and vibrant unique colours, ten gorgeous finish types, and this line is more in line with the traditional nail polish segment. The new line is produced with creative consumers in mind, the consumers who love and enjoy switching up their nail looks frequently.

Forever changing nail colour and textures, mixing colours, and creating stand out in the crowd looks. These nail polishes are just as unique as the consumers who wear them. Additionally, the 80 colours within this line are entire, brand-spanking’ new to CND. So what’s the difference between this new line, Creative Play, and other CND lines?

There are a few notable key differences, both pros and cons for consumers and salon owners when determining whether or not to give it a try, or choosing between Creative Play and Vinylux. But we assure you, the pros far outweigh the cons and some may not view the cons as cons at all. It’s all comes down to how you look at it, what you prefer, and what you expect from a nail lacquer.

About Creative Play

This exciting new line features 80 beautiful bold, vibrant, unique colours like Glittabulous, Sea the Light, Orange You Curious to name a few. It also features ten different unique texture styles, including can you believe, four different glitter styles. The ten textures include cream, shimmer, metallic, satin, pearl, metallic glitter, multicolour glitter, holographic glitter, micro glitter, and transformer.

The line is of the traditional lacquer segment. It’s a 3-step system, but it’s fast-drying, and it is “7-Free.” What does 7-free mean? Creative Play is formulated with the elimination of 7 ingredients which include toluene, camphor, formaldehyde, phthalates (DBP), formaldehyde resin, and xylene and methyl ethyl ketone (MEK).
Because the original lacquer itself designed with the standard wear of traditional polish, it is recommended to combine this coat with the base coat and the top coat to increase the longevity of your new creative look for a finish that’s flawless and chip resistant.

Another perk of this set is that its brush is designed with 400 bristle ends, which ensure smooth and even lacquer distribution for a polished manicure look as with other CND brush lines. So, there is no difference in the brush.

Regardless of which line you go with, you’re guaranteed a top of the line brush. A few cons, this line cannot be combined with the Shellac line, whereas the Vinylux line can, and it is a 3-step system versus the 2-step ease-of-use compared with Vinylux.

About Vinylux

As you may already know, Vinylux is known for the fact that this is a hardcore upscale classy and fun line that can get your nails through the week minus the need for a base coat without chipping or breakage. Also unique to this bold line of nail lacquer is its strengthening capabilities.

Traditional polishes tend to weaken over time, resulting in a finish that’s prone to chip and break. But not with Vinylux polishes. With this line, your polish does the reverse—it strengthens over time. Click Here to learn How To Apply A Perfect CND Vinylux Polish

As mentioned earlier, this is a 2-step system requiring two coats of lacquer and a top coat. The polish takes about 8 minutes to dry. A base coat is not needed as there is already one built into the polish, so your nails are protected! Depending on the health of the nails, Vinylux promises to deliver beautiful manicured nail results for one week without chipping or breaking; then it’s time to freshen things up or to remove the polish and go with a new look for next week.

Who says you have to choose?

Why choose between the two? Each line has its own unique set of benefits and capabilities. If you opt to fill your salon with both edges of lacquer, you have the best of both worlds. Creative Play is 3-steps, but it’s fast drying, and you have loads of colours and fun textures to choose from—and we mean fun. Check it out here for yourself.

The Vinylux line is also fun and fast, but it’s more sophisticated and chic. It takes 8 minutes to dry, yes, but it only requires 2-steps. The Vinylux process is quicker than the 3-step Creative Play process! With both sets, you have versatility depending on your mood as the master manicurist.
