Page 103 of 120 | MAY 2015 101 The CND Design Lab Team spent hundreds of hours creating lavish 3D nails for Libertine and The Blonds runways—the former featured 2,500 hand-placed paillettes, 600 feet of gold chain and 110 individually sculpted shark teeth. Less ornate, but just as intricate, CND collaborated with Opening Ceremony to complement their collection, inspired by the early work of film director Spike Jonze. Celebrity nail artist Naomi Yasuda transformed some models' nails into miniature film strips; others sported dozens of hand- painted stripes in heavily pigmented, Kodak-inspired red, yellow, blue and purple. Nude nails accented with black vertical stripes and fine, black beads were designed by Elaine Watson of Cuccio Colour to coordinate with LaQuan Smith's collection. Watson stuck with the black and nude theme for the Jordan Louis show, creating a neutral manicure with a slim black triangle at the base of each nail. A "triple layered moon mani", created by celebrity manicurist Rachel Shim for the Moskov runway, featured negative space and two varying purple hues, including the nail company's Playing in Playa del Carmen. Collaborating with nearly 20 fashion designers, nail artists for Essie created a wide range of NYFW manicures, ranging from a simple metallic blue for Costello Tagliapietra to a matte nude for Alexander Wang to a single stripe of Good As Gold glitter on a naked nail for Delpozo. Nail artist Michelle Saunders designed edgy chevron stripes for Rebecca Minkoff, who was recently unveiled as Essie's color designer. Inspired by marine life for the Tanya Taylor runway, high-gloss black polish from Morgan Taylor was adorned with hand-painted silver holographic spine motifs. At the Zero + Maria Cornejo show, Gina Edwards painted large black dots, which asymmetrically slid off the sides of each nail. With the aim of putting a twist on the classic French mani, nail artist Miss Pop for OPI created a two-tone design inspired by a Mary Jane shoe for Jeremy Scott. She picked bright colors from the brand and mixed just 1/10th of each shade with a bottle of top coat, creating six opaque bases that she then embellished with a thick, white French tip and a horizontal stripe mid-nail.
