For The Blonds' Spring/Summer 2018 runway show at New York Fashion Week, CND supplied long, intricate nails with glittering, tropical designs that echoed the inspiration for the collection. The nails include many 3D elements, such as birds of paradise, hibiscus, crystals, scorpion tails, and floral lace, as well as glow-in-the-dark elements and lots of glitter.
Jan Arnold, Co-founder and Creative Director for CND, guided the CND Design Lab team with creative lead Shelena Robinson. Having provided nail art for The Blonds many times before, Arnold is familiar with their decadent, out-there styles. “Their collections are so captivating, so rich in exquisite detail, that they go beyond fashion to create an enchanting universe all their own. Like the Blonds, CND has a passion for creating looks that transcend style to tell a story. We truly cherish David and Phillipe as creative collaborators, and working with them season after season is our idea of paradise.”
“The Blonds always inspire us to set a new standard of uninhibited glamour," Arnold says. This season took us to a jewel-drenched jungle bursting with bold color, and with styles showcasing exotic animal prints and opulent, oversized gemstones, the nails were every bit as fabulous as they were fierce.”
