Polished: Glamorous Manicures by CND at Norman Ambrose Spring 2012


CND

@ Norman Ambrose – Spring 2012

As you can tell I am pretty much obsessed with almond/oval shaped nails.  It is probably because it is very unlikely that I would be able to achieve the desired length since my nails do not have the decency to at least wait until they grow past my fingertips to break.  Therefore, I am living vicariously through CND’s creations.  I mean how glorious is the manicure pictured above that was developed by Candice Manacchio for Norman Ambrose?  It was one out of the six looks created for Ambrose’s collection that, according to CND, looks like “high glam 1960’s pieces straight out of vintage Vogue – for the sexy, exotic woman who swims in her diamonds.”  With a description like that you know the nails had to be hot.  The gilded look can be recreated at home with CND Colour in Gold Chrome paired with CND Colour in Blackjack on the tips and gold leafing.  CND also shared the components of the other manicures:

  • CND Colour in Flashpoint iced with Sheer 24K Sparkle Effect for a funky French tip
  • Flashpoint topped with CND Colour in Poppyfield, acid washed with a sweep of acetone for texture
  • CND Colour in Gold Chrome topped with CND Colour in Copper Chrome, finished with acetone wash
  • CND Colour in Desert Suede topped with Ice Blue Shimmer Effect, edged with CND Colour in Silver Chrome
  • CND Colour in Putty topped with CND Colour in Creamy Cameo and Ice Blue Shimmer, and edged with CND Colour in Silver Chrome
