7. Look 1 – Libertine Fall 2016
Nails: Nail artists in the CND Design Lab used Vinylux for a bright base. They then used a mixture of CND products (Shellac, Liquid & Powder) to form eye-popping (literally) nails. Created by Jan Arnold and Torie Bastian of CND with a mix of products – Vinylux for a bright base and the 3-D eyes were sculpted with a CND Shellac, Liquid & Powder. Images: CND
7. Look 2 – Libertine Fall 2016
Nails: These furry nails were the second look created by CND for the Libertine show. The CND team painted each nail with Vinylux Rubble and Cream Puff and then adhered the brown or white faux fur to each nail with a top coat. Images: Getty
