CND Vinylux was previously only available to professionals, but can now be purchased by consumers (like us!) on their website via Loxa Beauty! Visit cnd.com/VINYLUX and click the “Buy Now” button for more information.

About Loxa Beauty:

Founded in 2011 to bridge the gap between the salon and online product sales, Loxa Beauty and its partner brands provide a direct-to-consumer retail option that supports Beauty Professionals and salons with every transaction. With each sale, customers are prompted to provide the information of a salon or Pro of their choice, who then receives a commission from the sale. When a customer does not choose a particular salon or Pro at checkout, the patent-pending Loxa Local program ensures that a salon or Pro within the customer’s local area receives that commission.

Are you excited that CND Vinylux is now available for the public?
