Jan Arnold is the reigning queen at CND! Her official role is “Co-Founder”, but her impact on the company extends far beyond this title. Jan is the daughter of
Dr. Stuart Nordstrom, the brilliant dentist and organic chemist whose discoveries launched the company in 1979.

Since then, Jan has come to epitomize the many facets of CND. Her experience as a brand engineer has contributed to CND’s success as a worldwide company, and her personal sense of style makes her the high-fashion face behind the brand. When asked about the secret of her success, she told Nails Magazine that it was all about being “Big”. Big ideas, big impact, big successes, and BIG passion!

One need only look to New York Fashion Week to see Jan and CND’s many accomplishments. Top designers request thousands of custom-made nails for their catwalk collections every couture season. Nicole Miller, Cynthia Rowley, Oscar de la Renta, Betsey Johnson, BCBG, and Carolina Herrera are just a few names associated with the dozens of shows that CND does in New York alone.

If Jan were a CND Shellac shade, she would be Rock Royalty. This shade represents her rock-star status in beauty and business. It also reflects how Jan’s direction has led to CND‘s glowing reputation as an A-lister in the beauty and fashion world!
