On Monday, March 14, CND unveiled the first Shellac & Fashion Fusion Show, a runway show that featured the hottest nail styles and fashions straight from New York Fashion Week. More than 500 nail techs attended the three-hour event at America's Beauty Show 2011, which showcased six of the latest nail styles and looks from leading designers including Jason Wu, Diego Binetti, Ruffian, and Sally LaPointe; a presentation on new Shellac shades and techniques; and hands-on education. The tickets to this show sold out in a week and a half, but CND was able to open the runway show itself (minus the hands-on education part) to even more nail techs to help satiate the demand. Unfortunately, the previous presentation ran over its time limit, causing the nail show to start late and ruffling some attendees’ nerves, but show organizers say this issue will be resolved for future events.
