‘Twist on the French Mani’
A twist on the classic french manicure was designed for the Rebecca Minkoff show. Models donned a dark red nail with black tips. To get this look firstly apply CND SOLAROIL™ to clean filed nails. This award-winning cuticle oil is infused with jojoba oil and vitamin E to create stronger healthier nails. Once rubbed in, apply one coat of CND VINYLUX™ in Crimson Sash. Allow to dry. Using CND VINYLUX™ in Indigo Frock brush on a neat arc along the edge of the nail and allow to dry. To finish apply a layer of VINYLUX™ Top Coat to give your look the week-long lasting effect.
‘Dot the I’
The A/W Alice and Olivia catwalk was a showcase of glossy nails with simple dots along the tips of the nails and cuticle line. Apply CND SOLAROIL™ to clean filed nails. Apply two layers of CND VINYLUX™ in Plum Paisley to nails and allow to dry. To apply the gold dots, dip a nail dotting tool in CND VINYLUX™ in Locket Love and carefully apply a medium sized dot a medium sized dot in the centre and two smaller dots surrounding it. To finish apply a layer of VINYLUX™ Top Coat to give your look the week-long lasting effect.
TIP: If you don’t have a nail dotting tool a bobby pin is equally as effective.
‘Half and Half’
The Matthieu Mirano show was dominated by the half and half mani. Firstly apply CND SOLAROIL™ to clean filed nails. Apply a single layer of CND VINYLUX™ in Rose Brocade to the right side of the nail, covering a quarter of the nail. Then apply two layers of CND VINYLUX™ in Plum Paisley to fill in the remaining left side of the nail. To finish, apply a layer of VINYLUX™ Top Coat to give your look the week-long lasting effect.
