CND held its Boot Camp 2017 in San Diego from January 12-18. Attendees had the opportunity to participate in a once-in-a-lifetime experience — a week of training to become CND Education Ambassadors and special guest artists around the globe.
During a seven-day advanced training filled with fun, extensive education, inspiration, and celebration, participants developed their skills with CND Shellac, Vinylux, Additives, and Brisa Gels, as well as sculpting with Liquid & Powder. They also learned about personal wellness, color theory, and communication techniques. Taking part in early morning fitness training added to the complete transformation of the boot camp attendees.
This year, CND added its new lines — CND Spa and Creative Play — to the training program.
CND Bootcamp 2017 welcomed 19 participants from across the U.S. and Canada. Special guests included Addie Sarino, national director of nails for Red Door Salon; Mindy Cao, purchasing manager, Davi Nails; Viviana Cadavid, founder, CadaVida Foundation; and Chloe Anh Tran, managing editor of VietSALON.
