CND is releasing its signature manicure looks for Spring 2012 fashion week. According to CND, the season's manicures are rockstar rebellious in ombré, light neons, and checkerboard brights.
With an emphasis on sci-fi holographic finishes, and second skin to modernize neutrals, CND’s nudes transcend into translucent milky white or clear tips embellished with lattice, sparkle, and gold foiling for a lovely, optically stimulating look.
From left to right: Jade Sparkle, Ice Blue Shimmer, Brilliant White, Electric Orange, Poppyfield, and Raspberry Parfait.
Here are three of CND's 21 looks straight off the runway, listed by show, lead artist, look, and description:
