At New York Fashion Week, Creative Nail Design (CND) marked their 15th anniversary by outfitting the digits for 18 designers’ Spring 2012 shows. The company has a nifty blog that breaks down the runway-worthy manicures. Here are our choice picks for rocking your spirit fingers:
Lucite Lace—Spotted at Joy Cioci and Joanna Mastroianni, this look is achieved by adhering lucite tips and gilded net lace patterns. A coat of paint seals the deal.
Black Swan Graffiti—At the Wayne show, CND artists used a base of brilliant white and then feathered black polish onto the tips.
Ombre—Jen Kao’s show mixed green, blue and red with black to achieve a gradiant look. Clear polish layered over wet nails seamlessly blends the manicure.
