Incognito Nails: How to Get CND's Camo Look
Camouflage was all the rage on fall 2013 runways, whether it was a leafy, traditional camo look from Patrik Ervell, or a bright take on the pattern, like Michael Kors’ electric blue camo coat. As the days get shorter, clients can amplify this trend by dressing up their nails and toes in the military pattern. Here, CND explains how to get the manicure look they created for the amFAR Gala:
1. Apply a thin layer of CND VINYLUX Weekly Polish in Impossibly Plush.
2. Use a small piece of a dampened makeup sponge and randomly apply CND VINYLUX in Serene Green to the nail.
3. Repeat step # 2 with CND VINYLUX in Faux Fur and CND VINYLUX in Rubble to create the camo pattern.
4. Seal with CND VINYLUX Weekly Top Coat.
