CND took over Miami-based salon Vanity Projects during Art Basel Miami Beach, an international art festival that took place Nov. 28 through Dec. 3. The CND team of nail technicians created 16 designs that channeled the style of artists such as Daniel Buren, Takashi Murakami, Picasso, Dali and more. VIP guests at the salon either chose from the menu of designs, or worked in tandem with their celebrity nail tech to create an original design. In addition to the salon takeover, Vanity Projects and CND provided services at a pop-up at the W Hotel. This was in collaboration with Surf Lodge and The Perez Art Museum, where the nail technicians offered Julio le Parc-inspired designs.
The roster of guest nail artists included:

CND and Vanity Projects also featured live demos and giveaways across social media for those unable to attend the festival. Following the event, the Art Basel designs were available to Vanity Projects’ clientele for a limited time.
