The CND Daily Nail 2.11.11
Tux Luxe at Ruffian and Gilded Burgundy at Jason Wu
February 11, 2011 - CND's Co-Founder Jan Arnold and her team of talented Nail Professionals are collaborating with 21 designers for NY Fashion Week Fall 2011. Today's manicures were tuxedo formal, gilded burgundy, minty green, and brushed copper. Long, almond shaped nails at Ruffian and Jason Wu elongated fingers and made models look even slimmer than normal! From head to nail, runway looks were dressed up and extravagant:
At Ruffian, Kristina Estabrooks made luxurious tuxedo manicures fit for a black tie runway using Asphalt as a base, topped with Ice Blue Shimmer, Violet Shimmer, detailed with Blackjack, and finished with Super Shiney Top Coat for polished perfection. This masculine/feminine contrast accessorized a menswear-influenced collection.
Jason Wu's majestic, baroque nails were out in full force - Roxanne Valinoti created gilded burgundy manicures using Dark Ruby layered with Bloodline, and gilded with Gold Chrome smile lines. These manicures matched slicked back ponytails with a flash of gold leaf. Even Versailles could not contain this beauty look!
At Costello Tagliapietra, Angi Wingle crafted muted mint green manicures with custom blended Brilliant White, Bicycle Yellow, Green Scene, and Silver Chrome completed with Super Matte Top Coat for a satin finish. Paired with retro blown back hair, fiery red lips and offbeat red, green and yellow outfits on the runway.
Copper Chrome to accentuate a simplistic and sexy fabric palette in amber, bronze and black.
