We celebrated the last day of spring 2012 New York Fashion Week with a final show that spotlighted dark, urbane nails.
This season, manicures were in a heightened state of bliss – in Lucite, gold foiling, high shine gray, and glam styles:
Many thanks to our entire team who worked tirelessly this week doing some of the best nails I’ve ever seen! They were the most delicate, refined and gorgeous looks I can imagine. Here are some of the early comments from designers:
“Just have to tell you how amazing the nails looked and that people have not stopped asking me about them since Monday. Please send my thank you to the team and I truly appreciate the support and collaboration. PERFECTION! Looking forward to working together next season, cant wait actually as I’m now looking at nails in a whole new light! You guys are fantastic.” – Norman Ambrose
“Yesterday’s event was one of a kind; I felt transported into a magical land, and this, thanks to your support and CND. Love you ladies from Diego and me.” - Luz Solarez of Diego Binetti
