Creative Nail Design (CND) introduced its newest collection called Upcycle Chic, six shades inspired by frayed edges, speckled textures, and rugged lines to encompass an eco-conscious look. The shades incorporate a mix of warm, earth tones, and cool cleansing pastels.

Available in both CND Shellac Brand Gel Polish and CND Vinylux Long Wear Polish, this palette inspired by upcycled fashion and modern runway trends offers hot cappuccinos, worn denim, and autumn foliage.

"We are thrilled to unveil these six enchanting shades which not only embody the essence of the season but celebrate the harmony between sustainability and fashion-forward creativity. As we carefully curated this palette, our aim was to ignite a sense of inspiration for personal style, while paying homage to the allure and originality found in the world of upcycled fashion.”
