CND made a huge impact at the Fashion Week Opening Ceremony (the designer runway, not the Olympic event) with long, strong “pixelated watercolor” nails designed by celebrity manicurist Naomi Yasuda, in conjunction with both CND and Opening Ceremony. The marble-like design was created using VINYLUX Weekly Polish and CND Additives in greens and pinks inspired by CND’s Spring 2015 color collection, as well as black.
The look perfectly captured the essence Opening Ceremony designer Humberto Leon was going for: “We wanted this show to transport the audience to that moment when you’re lying by the pool staring at the sun and you fade into a half-sleep fantasy world where everything becomes blurry and dreamlike.”
The partnership between CND and Opening Ceremony was ideal – combining theater, nature, and structure. Says CND Co-founder Jan Arnold, “Carol and Humberto touch a global community and are making high fashion accessible to the masses. This speaks to the core of what CND is all about! With nail design, you can elevate your look with the stroke of a brush – and we empower women around the world to embrace nails as their ultimate fashion accessory.”
