The Blond girl this season is a “good girl gone bad” – she knows the difference between right and wrong but chooses to err on the dark side. The clothing and nails at the show expressed a modern twist on classic comic book villains, including Cat Woman, Poison Ivy and The Joker, and the results of this fashion collaboration truly took the art of nail design to an unprecedented level.

“Our elite education ambassadors are hand-selected for their talent and appreciation of art, from sculpture to color theory and beyond,” said CND co-founder Jan Arnold. “Building upon this artistic foundation, our team created looks for The Blonds that tie in beautifully with our ‘Modern Folklore’ trend prediction for Fall 2014, lush with embellished, bespoke and handmade craftsmanship. We don’t paint nails backstage at Fashion Week – we transform them into mini-masterpieces.”
