Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week has officially begun and it’s eye candy everywhere. None is better than being backstage to have that ‘first-look’. If you’re like most woman, you’re not only looking at the fashions (and of course who’s behind all the bulb flashes in the front row), you’re looking at the makeup. That mean from the tip of your head to the tip of your nails. There have been so many great looks so far and they are all thanks to CND Colours.
At Nicole Miller, CND’s Wanda Ruiz helped showcase parallel times to prove that “the past plays out in the present.” CND’s “Time Machine” manicures at Nicole Miller were trippy and hypnotic in colorful swirls of CND Colours in Plumville, Electric Orange, Bicycle Yellow and Anchor Blue. Master this look at home with a toothpick (or a detailing brush) and some patience.
Vintage-centic NAHM featured a “Sugared Neutral” nail with pink undertones. This color was custom blended by CND’s Angi Wingle, but can be recreated at home by layering CND Colour in Desert Suede with one coat of CND Colour in Marshmallow Rose, topped with CND Super Matte Top Coat. Strong nude nails looked flawless with minty green wingtipped eyes and glamorous ’20s ‘dos amidst punchy plum and eclectic green patterned fabrics.
At Correll Corell, CND ‘s Roxanne Valinoti perfectly contrasted metallic nude makeup with boldly pigmented CND Colours in Inkwell and Raisin in the Sun. These manicures matched blue tones throughout the collection and coordinated with smoked burgundy and rusty cognac shades on the runway.
For Jen Kao, CND’s Shelena Robinson took nails to back to French Vietnam for a darkly seductive look using CND Colours in Blackjack or Oilslick. This manicure was unapologetically promiscuous, strong and sophisticated when paired with rich tones and textures of satin and fur.
Stay tuned because I’ll be bringing you as much CND Candy from the designers that are on display. What a fun way to incorporate Fashion Week into your life
