Very Artful & Completely OTT CND Nails at Libertine Show

By Inspirationail

The CND™ Design Team are famous for the nails of many a catwalk at Fashion Week, their style collaborating with artists & designers bring true nail-couture to the runway.

That Little Extra

The team is renowned for interpretation & doing something special – in Jan Arnold’s words “something a little ‘avant garde’”. Here they are again, making the intended artistic statement for the colourful, fun & lively Libertine Show.

“The idea that the audience leaves a Libertine show feeling better, more alive, & energized is an appealing one, we always try to do something to make this happen. I think we did this time” say Johnson Hartig, the founding creative force behind Libertine.
