CND Modern Medieval Manis at Fashion Week

by NAILS Magazine | September 14, 2012

CND nail artist Michele Huynh designed these “Modern Medieval” manicures for the Rodarte show by weaving strips of custom blended and matte-ified CND Colours in Desert Suede, Frosting Cream, and Chocolate Milk over a base blend of high-shine CND Colours in Desert Suede and Frosting Cream. Each nail tip required 15 minutes to hand-detail, and the 30 total sets of nails for the show took 150+ hours to create.

For The Blonds’ “Psycho Beach Party” show, CND’s Kristina Estabrooks crafted an array of elaborately detailed nails including shark bites, skinny dip blue, and red caviar over CND Colour in Blackjack.
