If you're a lover of true nail art these designs are right up your alley. It's all about bringing that raw, dramatic visual feature from the runway to the audience. CND and The Blonds collaboration together is magical and vibrant. The whole concept is full of life and good times!
New York, NY (February 17, 2016) – CND, the global leader in professional nail products and services, was a showstopper at The Blonds Fall/Winter 2016 Show at MILK Studios in New York. The inspiration was 1950s Hollywood glamour with elements of the unusual world of Alice in Wonderland.
“CND’s Winter 2016 trend story evokes glitter glam, dazzling jewel tones and red carpet couture, and this was the perfect opportunity to tell that story with a trippy twist!”
To complete the runway collection, the unrivaled artists of the CND Design Lab Team created a distinct nail style for every look. The stiletto-shaped nails and their 3D embellishments were hand-sculpted with RETENTION+™ Liquid & Powder and BRISA™ Gel, then adorned with SHELLAC™ Brand 14+ Day Nail Color, VINYLUX™ Weekly Polish and CND™ Additives. The color palette featured a dynamic range of opalescent pinks, pearlescent brights and metallic blues, anchored in black patent and fishnet. One model donned a vibrant bouquet laced with thorns, while another showcased “Eat me,” “Drink me” and “Lick me” cookies adhered with edible glue. Nails were ornamented with unconventional materials like ribbons, feathers, foils, sequins, metal, faux fur and smoke – even crystals and stones created entirely out of nail products. A result of over 900 combined hours of production, these over-the-top designs were the perfect accessory for The Blonds’ dramatic collection.
