Bat your lashes, blow a kiss, bare some skin. Soft blushes of color tease the imagination. Coy. Confident. Playful. Be irresistible.

There’s an electricity of unspoken attraction in the air for Summer 2016. Evoke a subtle, sensual femininity with the new Flirtation Collection from CND. A palette of soft yet bright shades teases at the imagination and makes this collection equal parts coy, confident, and playful.

“This season, sweet, creamy pastels are inspired by modern lace and embroidery for a delicate and refined glamour,” says CND Co-founder and Style Director Jan Arnold. “The summer nail is a slim oval glazed with tender shades of coral and lilac, blushed with the spark of deepening allure. Flirtation’s summer code allows you to be irresistible.”

Let’s start with the watery shades. Because you know blues are cool! Here is Aqua-intance.

Aqua-intance is an aqua creme that is smooth and ultra glossy. This is 2 coats.

Perfect blue for a year that’s new, Morgan Taylor blings in 2015!

These aren’t your mama’s blues! They are vampy, sultry and ready to set off the fireworks on New Year’s Eve. So popular in fact is the trio that it’s currently sold out but you can still find two of these beauties on Loxa Beauty individually…New Year, New Blue and Snow Place Like Home. These polishes were made for bringing the new year.

Accented with Snow Place Like Home over white with sapphire gems (from Cinapro) on the ring finger, New Year, New Blue is a gorgeous shimmery indigo jelly/creme. I'm not sure if that is how you describe it, but it applies like a dream!

All the formulas were great. The New Year, New Blue is highly pigmented, you could get by with one coat, I usually do two. I applied Snow Place Like Home on my accent nail over white. But you’re free to experiment. This sugary topcoat is gorgeous over just about anything.

You'll love this set for bringing in the New Year! Bringing in the Season is easy with these chilly blues and snowy glitter. From left, Midnight Rendezvous, Snow Place Like Home and New Year, New Blue!
