Rihanna in US Magazine, pictured with CND VIP manicurist Flavia Pitton
While she’s been a fan of CND Shellac from the get go,
US Magazine recently featured Rihanna in Milan getting a Shellac Black Pool manicure on top of CND Retention+ liquid and powder set.
Yes, Shellac is for natural nails. But it is also for use over CND enhancements! How many of you are doing this double duty mani? I have a few gels that I Shellac over. No tip wear is a big benefit, along with the standard long lasting, high shine and no-dry time we’ve all come to know and love!
Zooey Deschanel’s excitement over her adorable tuxedo nails has spilled all over the internet.
Where did the design come from? CND’s Ruffian fall 2011 show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, New York.
And this is why runway is done!
Ruffian’s collection, called “Tuxedo Park” was matched perfectly with CND’s version of a feminine tuxedo manicure.
Experiment with your own colors or get this runway look at home:
CND Colours & Effects
Use the following combination to achieve the blue/lavender base:
Ice Blue Shimmer (2) coats
Lavender Pearl (1) coat
Air Dry Top Coat
Hand paint black bow tie at tip
Hand paint black moon base at base
Handpaint 3 buttons down the vertical center of the nail
In total, the CND team polished 6080 layers, 760 moons and bow ties and 2280 buttons for the Ruffian show. It was well worth it to see it again!
Congrats to the CND team that put it all together:
Lagerfeld formed a new mile high club with Paris Couture Week and Air Chanel
And this is why I love the shows overseas just a wee bit more – they tend to go ballistic with creativity.
Karl Lagerfeld has been on a roll lately, what with the banquet runway and now this, Air Chanel.
This is a luxury liner, no question. Numbered seats, Chanel logo carpeting, sky views and 62 couture outfits.
I love this little number. It has ombre, a denim-ish look, and sparkles? Sold.
Jeanne Beker shared the amazing invitation
Love the drink cart!
Pockets were everywhere, but what I love?
Extending the sequins down the leggings.
Accessorize with your thighs. FAB.
