CND London Daily Nail 2.21.12
Burnt Parchment Manis at Giles
February 21, 2012 - London's calling! The CND Daily Nail brings you the latest CND London Fashion Week runway nail styles created for designers Giles and Moschino:
At Giles, Marian Newman for CND designed a burnt parchment-inspired nail using a combination of colors to achieve the perfect shade. "Fingers and toes were not to match but had to be from the same family of colour" says Marian. "We custom blended CND Desert Suede (75%) with Sophia (25%) giving a 'licked by flame' effect; for toes we submerged into burnt brown combining CND Chocolate Milk, Sophia, a hint of Guava and a drop of Blackjack".
At Moschino, CND's Liza Smith created a Soft Peach semi-opaque manicure by blending CND Colour in Creamy Cameo with Studio White. The designer wanted the nail to mirror the exact colour of a pom-pom neck scarf from the collection.
