CND Creates Comet-Like Nails for Fashion Week

Creative Nail Design (CND), the pioneers of nail artistry at Fashion Week, once again joined forces with one of fashion’s most iconic free spirits, Jeremy Scott, for a Spring/Summer 2018 show. Marking Scott’s 20-year anniversary as an independent designer, this season’s looks showcased his take on intergalactic glamour.

Highlighting the playfully futuristic feel of the collection, the custom nail style featured silver-dusted nail beds and bursts of bright color. The look created the illusion of a comet streaming down the runway.

CND Creative Ambassador Simcha Whitehill, a.k.a. "Miss Pop" (@misspopnails), was the lead designer for the collection’s nail looks, alongside CND Co-founder & Style Director Jan Arnold.

“With an eclectic attitude that defies convention, Jeremy Scott always opts for the road less traveled—even when it leads to another galaxy,” says Arnold. “We have an incredible admiration for Jeremy because of his creative spirit; and this season Jeremy took us on a brilliant space gypsy odyssey.”

To set off the silver-dusted comet nails, the CND team of Nail Professionals chose two bold CND SHELLAC shades: Hot Pop Pink and an electric orange, part of CND’s upcoming Summer 2018 collection. The bright tones were shown in both glitzy gloss and casual matte finishes on the elongated oval shapes of the nails.
