CND, the pioneers of nail artistry at New York Fashion Week, teamed up with pop culture’s “most irreverent designer,” Jeremy Scott, to create a striking look for his Fall/Winter runway. Similar to many of the iconic figures featured throughout his latest collection, the custom nail style highlighted during the show was truly one of a kind.
After a nearly decade-long hiatus, CND was thrilled to reunite with Scott, who shares a similar penchant for creating show-stopping looks. This season also marked the official kick-off of CND’s partnership with new Creative Ambassador and long-time Jeremy Scott collaborator, Miss Pop. Miss Pop led the charge backstage alongside CND Co-founder and Style Director Jan Arnold.
“It was so great to join forces with Jeremy Scott again,” said Arnold. “The classic red nail has just taken an unexpected turn. Soaked in the LA sun and worn on a medium length almond, we’re making it cool to wear red again…and of course, adding our own twist!”
Arnold and Miss Pop set out to create the perfect hue to serve as the new staple for every pop culture “fan girl.” It took three simple layers: a base of VINYLUX™ Weekly Polish in Banana Clips, followed by a layer of Electric Orange, topped with a layer of Wildfire. Some models’ nails were further embellished with hand-painted gold stars reminiscent of the world-renowned Hollywood Walk of Fame.
“This look is all about playful showbiz glitz,” said Miss Pop. “Over a fiery red nail, I added graphic gold stars –rising up the nails, boldly standing front and centre, and co-starring in corners. It’s an element that takes that aspirational glamour of LA and makes it DIY.”
