Fall 2012 Nail Trends from CND

CND, the pioneer of manicures as runway accessories, worked with 22 global designers including Theory, Victoria Beckham, Moschino and Catherine Malandrino during Fall 2012 Fashion Week in New York and London.

"Manicures are seductive and bursting with color - ripened opaque oxbloods, high shine gold and silver metallics and sophisticated creamy nudes are the hottest hues for Fall 2012," says CND Co-founder, Jan Arnold.

At Malandrino, nails were custom blended with CND Colours in Plumville and Dark Ruby to achieve a tough girl finish. Rich navy CND Colour in Midnight Sapphire submerged "Deep Sea Digits" at Karen WalkerRachel Antonoff's "Flirty Flower" nails were patriotic and patrician - achieve at home with a detailing brush and CND Colours in FlashpointBrilliant White and Anchor Blue. Satisfy your thirst for the decadent burgundy nails from Naeem Khan with CND Colour in Bloodline

This pure metal manicure seen at Behnaz Sarafpour is perfect for a red carpet Rooney Mara - edgy, not vampy. Invest in the opulent "Midas Touch" manicure from Alexandre Herchcovitch with two coats of CND Colour in Gold Chrome topped with CND Air Dry Top Coat

Creamy nude and lilac tones, such as CND Colour in Marshmallow Rose, were soft, clean and sophisticated on the runway at Ashish,Theory and Victoria Beckham. For a wilder spin on nude, try the "Terra Cotta" nails from Christian Cota that were inspired by drying clay in the Mexican desert. Coat nails in CND Colour in Putty, and using a makeup sponge, apply CND Colour in Chocolate Milk at the cuticle area to create the neutral faded ombre look. 

CND Colour retails for $9.00 per bottle, Effects retail for $11.00 per bottle, and Base and Top Coats retail for $8.50 each.
