Models from the Alice + Olivia Spring/Summer 2017 collection presented during New York Fashion Week were all about embodying the power of positivity and the beauty of nature…right down to their manis! The CND Design Lab Team of talented nail artists created several versions of garden-inspired designs on models for the show, but we think this one may just have you turning over a new leaf when it comes to your nails come Spring and here’s why…

1. IT’S EASY TO GET. “Partnering with Alice + Olivia by Stacey Bendet this season has given our team a unique opportunity to showcase bold simplistic nail styles that can be seamlessly recreated by Nail Professionals in the salon,” said CND Co-founder and Style Director Jan Arnold.

2. IT’S LIKE WEARING ART…ON YOUR NAILS.” 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,” said CND Education Manager Roxanne Valinoti. “These nails are flirty yet refined, perfect for a beach getaway or a summer soiree.”

mani-radar3. IT’S SO PRETTY! CND VinyLux Weekly Polish shades, from the upcoming CND Summer 2017 collection, were used to hand-paint the refined garden-inspired designs. For this look, models donned a neutral nail with intricate leafing design gracing the perimeter of each nail. Stunning!
