The CND Daily Nail 2.10.12
Time Machine Manis at Nicole Miller
February 10, 2012 - Welcome to Day 2 of The CND Daily Nail at New York Fashion Week! Today's manicure styles were a blast from the past.
At Nicole Miller, CND's Wanda Ruiz helped showcase parallel times to prove that "the past plays out in the present." CND's "Time Machine" manicures at Nicole Miller were trippy and hypnotic in colorful swirls of CND Colours in Plumville, Electric Orange, Bicycle Yellow and Anchor Blue. Master this look at home with a toothpick (or a detailing brush) and some patience.
Vintage-centic NAHM featured a "Sugared Neutral" nail with pink undertones. This color was custom blended by CND's Angi Wingle, but can be recreated at home by layering CND Colour in Desert Suede with one coat of CND Colour in Marshmallow Rose, topped with CND Super Matte Top Coat. Strong nude nails looked flawless with minty green wingtipped eyes and glamorous '20s 'dos amidst punchy plum and eclectic green patterned fabrics.
At Correll Corell, CND 's Roxanne Valinoti perfectly contrasted metallic nude makeup with boldly pigmented CND Colours in Inkwell and Raisin in the Sun. These manicures matched blue tones throughout the collection and coordinated with smoked burgundy and rusty cognac shades on the runway.
For Jen Kao, CND's Shelena Robinson took nails to back to French Vietnam for a darkly seductive look using CND Colours in Blackjack or Oilslick. This manicure was unapologetically promiscuous, strong and sophisticated when paired with rich tones and textures of satin and fur.
