Did CND Vinylux polishes live up to the hype?

I have seen some of my fellow beauty bloggers trying out the CND Vinylux polishes recently and I was excited to get my hands on the line.

I'm a huge fan of CND shellac polishes. We all know how popular they are in the nail salons. 
I expected the same thing out of the Vinylux line. 

My biggest attraction to the polishes is the fact that they come off like regular polish.
I got the 7 piece The Forbidden mini collection from nailpolishcanada.
Blue Rapture, Night Glimmer, Burnt Romance, Steel Gaze, Dark Dahlia and Tinted Love.

When applied with CND Vinylux Topcoat, Vinylux shades lasts for a week on the nails. Vinylux is a simple two step process that requires no base coat and is applied like regular polish. First, apply 2 layers of colour then apply Vinylux Topcoat. With natural light exposure the Vinylux Topcoat gets more durable resulting in a week long manicure.

It's beautiful! So creamy and vibrant.
If I had to score it on just formula, It would get a 10!

This is where I get baffled. I did everything the bottle said.
Some nails would stay almost chip-free and others would look horrid after day 3.
I have no idea what happened.
I'm still on the fence about this product. 

Has anyone else had the same issue with the CND Vinylux polishes?
Is there a technique that I should be using?

Favourite Fall Nail Colour?

Fall nails can range from neutrals to the deepest plums/blacks.
With that being said, I personally find that deeper tones look really nice on my skin tone.

Currently, I've been trying out CND Vinylux Weekly Polish. 
Not sure how I feel about the line yet but this deep blacken plum is gorgeous!

What is your favourite Fall nail colour?
