Pearls of Wisdom

by Staff Writer | September 1, 2009

In honor of CND’s 30th anniversary — commonly known as the pearl anniversary — the Russian School of Nail Enhancement OleHouse in Moscow has created this nail art design using several of CND’s pearlescent polishes.

Here’s how to get the look:


1. Apply CND Sculpting Powder in Clear to the entire nail. On the underside of the free edge, use a thin brush and black acrylic paint to draw leaves.

2. Flip the nail over to the original side and use a thin brush and black acrylic paint to draw leaves.

3. On the underside of the free edge, apply a stripe of CND Souvenir Junkie, then Heiress, and finally Hotski to Chotchke, letting the stripes overlap.


4. Flip the nail over to the original side and apply CND Finishing Gloss. Cure for two minutes. Use CND ScrubFresh to remove the sticky layer.
