Egyptian-Inspired Amazing Nails - 2016

CND Nails never cease to blow our minds.   With over 600 combined hours of production behind them, their avant-garde art nails walked The Blond runway during New York Fashion Week for Summer 2016, a fab fun show designed by Philippe and David Blond.  The highly sculptural amazing nail designs, each one distinctive, were the perfect accessory for The Blonds’ theatrical collection which was inspired by Cleopatra, the Spinx, Egyptology, Hieroglyphics, snake and crocodile skins, gold plated wings, a scarab beetle. All were concocted with unconventional materials – like feathers, foils, ribbons, chains, gems, jewels and stones. There was even a sarcophagus nail. (Don’t ask!) CND Co-founder and Style Director Jan Arnold said: “Royal golden tones ruled, antiqued and shimmering, with accents of blue turquoise, red and green.” Now these nail treasures would impress in the afterlife!     There were draped headdresses, hair, sometimes à la  Cleopatra, but blonde, was by Oribe Hair Care, lead hairstylist Kien Hoang, Egyptian-inspired make up using lots of golds shimmered on tan skin was by Kabuki for Mac and featured a gold chrome appliqué under the eyes.  This show was a Wow. Stay tuned for more photos on my Facebook Biz Buzz …
