CND’s fall collection, Craft Culture, takes the stress out of creating denim-inspired nail designs. Get the distressed look of a favorite pair of blue jeans on the tip of your nails by following these easy steps.

1. Prep the natural nail and apply a CND Clear Tip. Apply a Brisa Sculpting Gel Clear enhancement and finish with the 180 side of the Blizzard File. Apply a thin layer of Brisa Paint White to the entire nail and cure for one minute in the CND LED Lamp.

2. Mix CND Additives Dungarees with a few drops of 99% Isopropyl Alcohol in a mixing tray and sponge over the nail.

3. Sponge Shellac Denim Patch and Black Pool, layering colors over each other. Cure for one minute.

4. Apply a thin layer of Brisa Gloss and cure for one minute. Wipe with 99% Isopropyl Alcohol to remove the tacky layer.
