CND created three graphic nail designs for the Alice + Olivia by Stacey Bendet Spring/Summer 2017 presentation. Inspired by 18th century tarot cards and mystic gardens, the clothing and nails embodied the power of positivity and the beauty of nature. Shares CND Co-founder and Style Director Jan Arnold, “Stacey Bendet’s inspiration this season fell right in line with our Summer 2017 trend story, which is rooted in nature with a sultry blend of color and design.”

The CND Design Lab Team used CND VINYLUX Weekly Polish shades from the upcoming Summer  2017 collection to hand-paint the refined garden-inspired designs. One group of models wore a fresh take on the French manicure, with a crescent swoop of dusty rose down one side of the nail and a single palm leaf down the other. Another group donned a neutral nail with intricate leafing around the perimeter. Finally, CND showcased a slightly tinted base layer, embellished with cascading clear crystals on three select models for an ethereal touch of shine.

“The CND Design Lab Team is renowned for our avant-garde 3D nail designs, so we love the challenge of harnessing that creativity and translating it into precise, wearable art,” says CND Education Manager Roxanne Valinoti. “These nails are flirty yet refined, perfect for a beach getaway or a summer soiree.”
