Fire, fury and frescos all served as key words of inspiration for the Blonds Fall Winter 2018 runway show. The question of the day is what the world would come to if Lucifer was a woman? If you look at the answer through the CND nail lens, it would look like incandescent flames of fire, molten marbled lava, armor with lethal spikes and warrior nails all in exaggerated shapes created with richly saturated colors. And when the skies clear, the angels sing! Portraits of the designers themselves in halos and horns served as the centerpiece for hand painted fresco nails rimmed with gold and framed with clouds and cupids arrows. Then like smoke rising, iridescent purple and 24-karat high shine nails erupted into 3D shards of volcanic crystals taking the story full circle and back into the fire. This tension between angels and demons produced a dichotomous collection of dramatic nail designs as perfect punctuation to this exquisite collection of Blonds artistry. The crescendo was a flame red and bejeweled corset made entirely of ruby red nail tips!! A heavenly way to celebrate the perfect partnership!
