I was invited to get Glam for TIFF at the beautiful Byblos Restaurant, right around the corner from the TIFF Bell Lightbox. The room was bustling with excitement as film buffs and social butterflies put on finishing touches before hitting celebrity central at the Toronto International Film Festival. With the wine flowing, jazz quietly playing and the lights dimmed, this was a perfect place to spend an exciting Saturday afternoon, finding out who saw who and what they were wearing.

Leheta, CND Education Ambassador and semi-finalist in this year’s Contessa Awards, invited me to sit down with my Prosecco and get comfortable for a little beauty treatment. She showed me the array of Vinylux nail polish colours that I could choose from, ranging from shimmering frozen pastels to surreal glacial hues. I explained that I’ve never had shellac before and she said I’m in for a treat – the polish will last at least two weeks. That sounds fabulous to me! I selected the Nordic Lights and Liliya advised me that it a transparent colour so I needed to select a base colour. She walked me through my choices and I finally picked Rock Royalty.

Liliya and I discussed everything from the Vegetarian Food Fest to celebrities at TIFF as she gave me a manicure.

I received an amazing gift bag filled with all these goodies. So far I’ve spritzed my hair with some ultra-conditioning Revlon Uniqone Coconut, which gives dry summer hair a vacation – makes it soft and silky and smells so lovely. It repairs dry and damaged hair, does frizz control and protects hair from heat.

My surprise gift bag also contained Vinylux® Weekly Polish which lasts a week. It dries in minutes and provides 7-day, chip resistant wear.

I took home Vinylux in Nordic Lights, Winter Glow, Glacial Mist and Tundra, which will work gorgeously with my fall and holiday season wardrobe.

I look forward to changing my manicure often with these glistening shades in CND® VINYLUX® Weekly Polish.

Make sure your hair and nails looks fab and wear something that turns the confidence way up. #TIFFstyletip #RevTheRedCarpet2015

  1. What a great event! I love those nail polish colours. They are sparkly without being too over the top! There are some products in that swag bag that I’ve been dying to try!

  2. What a fun event to attend! I love how your nails turned out they are the perfect color. Those are amazing goodies in the gift bags you got, what a perfect night out too.

  3. I’ve lived in Kitchener-Waterloo for close to ten years and I had never been to TIFF! I’ve always been in the city and missed it by a day or so. Nor had I been invited to fancy events like you – I love that you got pampered at CND! I use their shellac polishes at the salon I now go to 🙂 It’s good stuff.

  4. Looks like a great event! I love the polish and especially the one you picked, it’s perfect for fall. You swag bag looks amazing too. I bet you can’t wait to dive in and try out all of these products!

  5. So I LOVE gel manicures! I am a nail snob and have to get them done at least monthly. I feel naked without 🙂 I am in love with this and had no idea of this brand! I am sure to check out the Crew by Revlon professional for sure! Thanks for sharing and LOVE the manicure!

  6. I love this color and I could use a nice new coat on my nails. The name is fun too, Rock Royalty, I have to try this one out! I am always lacking in the nail dept…. I need to work on this big time!

  7. That was a BELLA combination of nail polish you chose! Isn’t it wonderful to get a surprise gift, that you can really use and love using it?? Babushka will be looking for those products nearby; BB’s color is purple and again, that was just beautiful. BB2U

  8. That shade of nail polish looks really good on you – what a nice activity to do at the event. And, the goodie bag was definitely packed with a lot of nice things. I like that you got to take home the colors that you liked from the manicure. Lots of fun products to try! I haven’t heard of any of them.

  9. Your nails are gorgeous. Love the shape! I am a huge fan of shimmer and sparkles and I love how you did this without it being too much. These colors are perfect together and perfect for you!

  10. The colours are fabulous and are working beautifully this holiday season. I receive many compliments even though I’ve been wearing the same colours for over two months.
