CND unveiled 20 distinct nail designs at The Blonds Fall/Winter 2015 Show at MILK Studios during New York Fashion Week. Inspired by dystopian elements of several iconic films, the clothing and nails featured a clash of distressed and refined elements, best described as apocalyptic couture.
The elite artists of the CND Design Lab Team handcrafted the nails and their dramatic embellishments with CND® Liquid & Powder and BRISA® Gel. Then, layers of high-shine color were applied using CND® SHELLAC® brand 14+ day nail color and VINYLUX® Weekly Polish, using innovative techniques to create matte suede texture. Accented with gold chrome accessories, textural elements and layering created serious dimension, while couture camouflage in industrial tones were embellished with hand-crafted molten paillettes. The bold 3D designs, which took over 900 combined hours to create, were pierced, draped, laced, torn and burnt, perfectly accessorizing The Blonds' theatrical collection.
