The supercharged nail designs that CND creates are a major attraction at New York Fashion Week. This season, they collaborated with The Blonds, Libertine, and Jeremy Scott, brands known for their wild, energetic lines.
CND meets with designers months in advance to discuss the inspiration behind their runway collections and then customizes hundreds of manicures for the models, working up until minutes before the show. Each nail is transformed into a work of art. Using such embellishments as foiled three-dimensional holographic gems, plates of glass, copper and crystal micro beads, and Swarovski crystals, their artists put everything they have into each design.
At the Blonds’ Spring 2018 show, Teyana Taylor made a fabulous appearance on the catwalk. Teyana’s nails were painted with holographic powder imported from China to resemble real python snakeskin. The manicure took approximately six hours, and the result was fierce.
Watch the video above for an exclusive look at what was arguably the most expensive manicure at Fashion Week.
