CND Creative Play Barefoot Bash is one of the creme polishes from the summer 2017 Sunset Bash collection. It is a soft pastel lavender shade that can lean more blue in some lighting. It is opaque in two coats with no visible nail line and no chalky finish despite the pastel shade.
As with all Creative Play polishes, Barefoot Bash comes in a 13.6ml round bottle with a medium sized brush. The Creative Play advanced brush designed with nearly 400 bristle ends to allow for precision and smooth application. I like that it gives precision while not being as small as Essie’s brushes. The micronized pigments deliver smooth, uniform application, high gloss, and richly saturated color.

Can You Stamp With CND Creative Play Barefoot Bash?
These polishes are pretty opaque but not quite one coaters. But I thought I would try stamping with them and was surprised how well they show. Barefoot Bash was no exception. Shown far left, it shows really well over black and is visible over white. As a more pastel colour that needs two coats on the nail, I am really impressed with how well it stamps.
